If you have missing teeth that have not been replaced, the gaps left behind can alter your facial structure, your speech, your eating habits, your oral hygiene, your happiness, and even your social standing amongst your peers. Our dentist at Haeberer Family & Cosmetic Dentistry believes you can have your perfect smile with the help of a complete or partial set of dentures. The dangers and setbacks caused by the gaps left behind in your mouth do not have to be permanent. Don’t go another year with missing teeth. Fill in your perfect smile with dentures.
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. Use the following tips to keep your dentures safe and strong:
– 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.
