Treat Your Dentures with Tender Loving Dental Care

Affordable Quality Dentures

 

Dentures are meant to make your life better, but need special care to stay their best. They may be replacements for natural teeth, yet need similar cleaning and maintenance routines to keep looking good and working well. If you follow these simple steps for care and wear, you’ll find that it’s easy to love life with dentures.

When it comes to dentures, proper cleaning is a priority. Be sure to brush and rinse your dentures daily to remove food, plaque, and stains. Gently brush each surface of your dentures with a soft-bristled toothbrush that’s specifically made for cleaning dentures. Use a mild hand soap or dishwashing liquid since most toothpastes and household cleansers can be too abrasive and do damage. Ultrasonic cleaners can also be used, but they’re not a replacement for daily brushing. To keep your dentures clean between brushings, try to rinse them after every meal.

But don’t think that wearing dentures spares you from good dental care. You still need to brush your gums, tongue, and palate every day before putting in your dentures. This helps you remove any plaque and increase circulation all throughout your mouth. If you wear a partial denture, take it out before brushing your natural teeth to make sure that you reach every crevice. Also rinse your mouth daily with salted water to keep gums clean and healthy.

Just as important as regular cleaning is responsible care. When cleaning your dentures, hold them over a folded towel or sink of water to avoid dropping and breaking them. Some people recommend placing dentures in cool water or a soaking solution to keep them moist when they’re not being worn. But since this can damage some types of dentures, ask a family dentistry expert at Wadas Dental of Munster for the best way to care for your particular pair.

To keep your dentures working and wearing well, you need to see the dentist on a regular basis. Most dentists advise dental appointments every six months to make any adjustments, clean teeth, and check for oral health problems.

While dentures are meant to be comfortable, it can take some time for a perfect fit. You’ll probably need a few dental visits to make the needed adjustments. Remember that denture repairs are not D.I.Y. projects, so leave alignments and refinements to an expert in family dentistry. Most fixing and fitting can often be done on the same day by an affordable dentist, but some corrections may take more time and require repairs at a special lab.

Once your dentures fit you well, you’ll find that they feel and function like natural teeth and you may even forget that they’re not your own. But know that your jaw and gums will change with age and these subtle shifts can affect their fit. As a result, you can expect to need a new pair of dentures about every seven years.

But the beauty of dentures is how they let you live life with a full set of teeth. As long as you take care of your dentures, your dentures will take care of you.
