Dental Questions Answered on Dentures

Posted .

If you seek to enhance your smile by replacing missing or lost teeth, you will need to replace them with functional tooth prosthetics. Fortunately, in modern dentistry, tooth prosthetics are designed and crafted to mimic the natural look of teeth and can drastically improve functions that were lost due to an incomplete smile. If you’re in need of a removable tooth restoration treatment, dentures are your best option.

Are you aware of the fact that the gaps in your smile left behind by missing teeth can potentially become homes for plaque buildup and bacteria? It’s true, so it is important to make sure that any missing teeth are always accounted for and replacements are used. In addition, gum destabilization, tooth slippage, a weakened jawbone, and a sunken in facial structure can arise due to missing and lost teeth. Thus, consider a tooth replacement treatment such as dentures to reverse the damage and restore essential functions back to your smile.

Denture care is essential in order to ensure they can function effectively for many decades to come. However, dentures are quite fragile and can easily be damaged if you drop them. Thus, always handle them with care when taking them out for cleanings. In order to clean them effectively, soak them in a denture cleaning solution, typically overnight. When it’s time to insert them back into your mouth, rinse them off before doing so. In addition, clean out your mouth as well. Furthermore, never set them aside as they can easily dry out and crack. Lastly, always make sure to avoid abrasive cleaning products on your dentures.
