|Accidents can happen at any time. You might end up losing your teeth for one reason or another. Thankfully, you have options. Technology today has evolved so much that no one has to get stressed about missing teeth or how they will look and function without their teeth.
The art of dentures has evolved so much that most people will not be able to tell that you are wearing dentures. Although the process isn't simple, we can teach you how to properly take care of your dentures so that they can last for the longest time and give you as much service as possible. For this to become a reality, there are some things that you must consider while caring for your dentures.
Caring for DenturesOne rule of caring for your dentures is to keep them clean. They often last much longer when kept clean at least twice each day. Brush them and soak them overnight, ensuring that they are kept clean all the time. You should also make sure that you come in for regular appointments when we ask. Because of our specialized knowledge, we know when your dentures need some work and when you need to have them looked at.
While you have dentures on, it is important to watch what you eat. Even though the dentures are often quite strong, there are some foods that contribute to the speedy decomposition of the denture.
It is important that you stay away from very hard foods such as ice, or opening things up with your teeth. Since dentures aren't made of the same material teeth are, they will break quickly when used the wrong way.
Finally, dentures aren't permanent. As such, they need to be removed every night to sustain them. This also provides some relief to the mouth. The dentures need to be soaked overnight to keep them in the best condition possible.
Always remembering to take care of your dentures will provide you with an answer for your missing teeth and give you a sense of normalcy after your teeth have been removed. Call our office to find out more.
