Tips on Caring for Your Dentures

Overview: If you wear full or partial dentures, you know that they are a great investment. Dentures restore the proper functions of the mouth like eating, but they also have intangible benefits like giving you confidence in your daily life. With an investment that pays substantially in your day-to-day life, you need to keep great care of them. Read the following blog for tips on how to properly maintain your full or partial dentures.

 

Cleanliness is Godliness

Because you have lost your natural teeth doesn’t mean that daily oral care is now a distant memory – you still have to maintain regular cleaning. By cleaning your dentures daily you will prevent them from staining and plaque build up. You will have to make a few adjustments compared to the oral care you practiced with your natural teeth. You’ll need to brush your dentures daily with a soft-bristled brush since regular toothbrushes are too hard on false teeth. There are a number of dental cleaning products available on the market for you to use to keep your dentures sparkling.

 

Handle With Care

Dentures really are quite amazing; they perform and look just like real teeth, but as durable as they are in the mouth, they are equally fragile outside. Denturists are always reminding you the importance of keeping your dentures clean and it’s usually during cleaning when your dentures are most vulnerable to breaking. Denturist Vlad Dumbrava advises to always clean your dentures over a folded towel, just in case they slip out of your hands and fall. Also important is to give the hard working dentures a well-deserved break. By removing your dentures before you go to sleep and soaking them in a denture cleanser solution or warm water will help prevent stains, plaque, tartar and bacteria from developing. The moisture will also prevent your dentures from warping and or drying out.

 

Gums

Dentures and real teeth always get the glory when it comes to the mouth, but it’s important to give the gums some attention as well. When you have removed your dentures, take the time to rinse your mouth and massage your gums with a washcloth. Gums are a soft tissue and can develop infections and irritations, especially with dentures that have plaque build up.

 

Routine Checkups

You’ll never get tired of routine checkups with denturist Vlad Dumbrava! And if you can’t get to the Future Smiles Clinic in Mission, then Denturist Vlad will travel to you! Denturist Vlad believes that routine checkups are so important that he is happy to make an appointment with you at the comfort of your home. Routine checkups are the best preventative measures you can take to ensure your dentures remain in top form. As you age, your mouth will endure subtle changes in both the gums and the mouth, which in turn can affect the way your dentures fit. The shifts in the gums can cause your dentures to become loose fitting which ultimately can lead them to falling out and breaking. With routine checkups, your denturist can closely monitor how well your dentures fit and can make any necessary adjustments that are needed.

 

The Bottom Line: By regularly cleaning your dentures, handling them with care, practicing great oral health and routinely visiting denturist Vlad, you will keep the investment you made in your dentures a prosperous one! And now that Denturist Vlad can visit you at your home, you have all the resources you need to maintain your dentures.
