Are you taking care of your dentures correctly and making sure they can produce for you in the ways that they need to? Because your dentures are so important to your oral health when they are present, you will need to do everything you can to keep them safe and clean. Even small accidents that can occur due to you dropping them can lead to severe oral health risks. Always make sure they are in the peak condition and cleaned on a daily basis. If for any reason you suffer any damage to your dentures or if they are not functioning as you need them to do, or if you fail to take care of them correctly, you will need to visit our dentists for treatments and solutions.

Are you aware of the risks associated with not replacing any missing teeth? Even a single missing tooth can drastically impair your smile. Not only can it make you look older and change your dental impression by sinking your mouth in, but it can also weaken gums and your jaw and potentially cause other teeth nearby to slide out of place. However, if you have dentures in place whether by a single tooth, or an entire row of teeth, your smile will be much healthier and less likely to suffer from issues with teeth moving all over the place. Because dentures are removable, you will need to make sure that you’re cleaning and caring for them every single day. Take them out and soak them in a denture cleaning solution so that they can be free of bacteria and residue. Be sure to rinse them off before putting them back into your mouth. Also, make sure to never leave them sitting out anywhere as they will dry out and crack.
