If you have any missing teeth, the joys of dentures begin the moment you place them in your mouth. Any speech or eating impediments are dramatically decreased, and in the case of massive tooth loss, the renewal of teeth in your mouth can fill out your facial structure once more, giving you a much more youthful and natural look. Once again you can live your life to the fullest. Even if you only have a few missing teeth, dentures can be beneficial. At Smiles for Centreville, partial dentures are available to replace a few missing teeth, or you can have a set of complete dentures for entire rows.
If you already have a set of dentures, it is imperative to give them the same care and attention as you would your normal teeth. Although the habits may change, your dentures can fail if you do not take care of them.
Listed below are a few guidelines to denture maintenance;
– Clean your dentures daily, but avoid using toothpaste, as it is too abrasive and can damage them. Always use dentist-approved denture cleaner or mild hand soaps.
– Dentures can crack and break if they dry out, so always soak them in a dentist-approved cleaning solution when not in use. Plain water can also be used as a substitute.
– Keep your mouth clean at all times, even when not wearing your dentures. Do not insert dirty dentures back into your mouth, and be sure to wash away any chemicals from your dentures if they were soaked in cleaning solution.
