Here are five things every person with dentures needs to know
Posted on 2/21/2022 by Brandon Cooley
Our oral health is critical, and we must take care of it at all times. We lose our teeth from a variety of causes, including trauma, tooth decay, gum disease, and other issues connected with poor oral care. The dentist assesses which treatment alternatives are best for our teeth, and dentures are one of them. Dentures are detachable implants that the patient wears to act like natural teeth following tooth loss. Our dental team will determine if you need dentures for your teeth and use it as a treatment option.
Brushing and Flossing
Getting dentures does not excuse us from brushing and flossing our teeth. Dentures are designed to look like genuine teeth. They should be appropriately cared for so that they do not cause more damage to the mouth. Cleaning the dentures regularly, as well as flossing is necessary to keep the mouth free of germs that can cause tooth decay. To keep bacteria at bay, immerse your dentures in mouthwash. This will keep the dentures clean at all times and also ensure that you have a healthy mouth.
Repair of the dentures
The prosthodontist professionally fixes broken dentures; do not attempt to repair the dentures yourself as you may cause further harm to them. When dentures are fitted incorrectly, they can be unpleasant and make chewing difficult. Please notify our dentists if you detect any changes in the appearance of your dentures. If you notice that your denture is fitting snugly against your gums, this is an indicator that you need to replace it.
Our dentist will assist you in fixing your dentures or fitting you for new ones. If you need new dentures, our dentists will fit you with a new pair after assessing your dental health.
