dental careDentures are incredibly common in the United States, and about 15% of the edentulous population has dentures created for them every year. These teeth replacements should be cared for just as you would for your regular teeth; however, there is some dental care misinformation swirling around the Internet that can compromise your oral hygiene. To prevent this, here are some straightforward denture care tips any wearer should follow!

  • Never let your dentures dry out
    Dry dentures are incredibly uncomfortable and if dry they won't be able to work properly. Dentures must be kept moist at all times or else they will warp and be ruined. Make sure to keep them in a denture cleanser soaking solution at all times when you are not wearing them, and stay far, far away from hot water for cleaning purposes.
  •  
  • Brush and floss them regularly
    As mentioned before, it is crucial that you treat your dentures as if they were your real teeth. This includes brushing and flossing them daily as this will remove food and plaque that can cause discoloration.
  •  
  • Don't forget about your tongue and roof of your mouth
    When you brush your dentures, make sure to brush the roof of your mouth and your tongue as well. Not only will this remove any leftover food and plaque, it will stimulate circulation which will keep your mouth tissues healthy.
  •  
  • Never hesitate to call your dentist
    If one of your dentures breaks, has a chip, or suffers from a broken tooth, make sure to go to your dentist right away.You will need a trained professional to repair them, so please do not attempt to yourself as they are quite fragile pieces.

     
  • Schedule regular dental appointments
    While the needs of each patient do vary, it is crucial that you go and visit your dentist about once every six months or so to ensure your dental hygiene is properly taken care of. This is so your dentist can ensure a proper fit, clean your remaining teeth, and look for signs of oral disease.


Make sure to follow these dental care tips so you will have sparkling dentures every single day!
