Top Oral Care Tips for Dentures

Dentures are custom-made replacements for missing teeth and can be taken out and put back into your mouth. While dentures take some getting used to, and will never feel exactly the same as natural teeth, today’s dentures are natural looking and more comfortable than ever.

Benefits of DENTURES
Replacing missing teeth will help to improve your appearance and smile. Without support from the denture, facial muscles sag, making a person look older. Dentures can help you eat and speak more comfortably.

Top Oral Care Tips for Dentures
  • Don’t let dentures dry out – place them in a denture cleanser soaking solution or in plain water when you’re not wearing them. Never use hot water, which can cause dentures to warp.
  • Brush your dentures – brushing dentures daily will remove food and dental plaque, and help prevent them from becoming stained.
  • Take care of your mouth – brush your gums, tongue and palate every morning with a soft-bristled brush before you insert dentures. This stimulates circulation in your tissues and helps remove plaque.
  • Consult your dentist – see your dentist if dentures break, chip, crack or become loose. Don’t be tempted to adjust them yourself — this can damage them beyond repair.


Further Tips for Dentures

1. Be confident. Dentures can improve your facial appearance and self-confidence, help you speak better and improve the chewing of most foods.

2. Check them with a dental professional. Once a year, check your gums with a dental clinic that specialises in dentures such as teh Beacon Dental Clinic in Sandyford. Even without natural teeth, your whole oral cavity can be subject to infections. A professional will be the best to know if your denture experience is going well, and in case of a prosthodontist, he’ll be the best suited to solve complex issues like restoring used dentures or fabricating a new one.
