You’ve taken the first step towards a beautiful, functioning smile, by choosing to replace missing teeth with dentures. Now comes the important part – taking good care of your dentures so that they last a long time.
Just like your natural teeth, dentures need proper care. Without it, they can be the source of bad breath and even worse, other oral health problems or infections. The good news is that taking care of dentures is simple and straightforward if you follow this routine.
The best thing to do is soak the dentures in warm water following every meal and rinse thoroughly before returning them. At the very least, a quick rinse after every meal will ensure that food particles are removed and not left to decompose.
Dentures, like natural teeth, must be brushed. We’ll give you recommendations on the best type of toothbrush and other products for denture care.
Before you go to sleep every night, you should clean your dentures with a special dental paste. Do not use regular toothpaste, as it can be too abrasive and potentially scratch the dentures.
With proper care, dentures can be trusted to function properly, fit correctly, and look beautiful for many years.
At the Denture Clinic, we believe strongly in the advantages of dentures. We find that the main reason dentures get a bad reputation is due to lack of proper fit from an inexperienced dentist. Our team has years of experience in placing dentures for patients. We take the time to ensure a proper-fit so that you can count on your dentures staying in place.
In addition, we utilize the latest in technology and high quality materials to give you a restoration that is natural looking.
