Are you missing any teeth? Are you looking for a more flexible replacement option rather than permanent tooth implants? With dentures crafted by our dentists at Ohio Urgent Dental Care, you can have the freedom and comfort that a full set of teeth can give you, but still remove them at your own desire if you so wish. In fact, removing your dentures every night helps ensure their longevity and cleanliness.
Don’t spend your life allowing missing teeth to affect your speech, eating habits, or happiness. A set of partial or complete dentures can give you back the smile you lost. 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 some steps to proper 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 a cleaning solution.
