Fundamentals of Proper Denture Care

dca-blog_dentures-mature-woman-apple

Adhering to proper denture care is a critical part of maintaining good oral health and is essential to keeping your dentures in great condition for as long as possible. The tips that follow can help any denture wearer do precisely that.

First, it is important to always exercise great caution when handling dentures. Accidental dropping of dentures can result in costly damage. When handling them, it is wise to position them over a soft towel or a sink that has been filled with water. These safeguards can go a long way toward keeping dentures intact.

As is the case with natural teeth, it is vital that dentures receive daily brushing to remove buildup of plaque and food debris. Regular brushing will help to keep stains from forming on the surface of the dentures. Soft-bristled brushes made especially for use on dentures are ideal. While brushing dentures, it is important to avoid damaging their plastic elements or bending attached pieces. Following meals, dentures should be rinsed thoroughly.

When it comes to cleaning dentures, simple is often best. Toothpastes and household abrasive cleansers are often too harsh to be used on dentures. Bleach should never be used, as it tends to whiten areas of the dentures that are meant to remain pink. Denture wearers should always look for American Dental Association approval on products they are considering using.

When not being worn, dentures must be stored in a wet environment to prevent loss of shape or excessive dryness. They can be kept either in water or in a cleaning solution specially formulated for dentures. It is important to note, though, that dentures with metal elements should not be immersed in such solutions, but should be stored according to the specific instructions given by your dentist.

In addition to caring properly for your dentures, it is also vital to take good care of your mouth and gums. The tongue, gums, and palate should be brushed daily prior to denture use in order to keep plaque from accumulating. Partial dentures must be removed so that natural teeth can receive the attention they require.

Finally, it is essential to make regular visits to a skilled, affordable dentist in Quail Meadows to ensure that the dentures fit correctly, that there are no signs of oral disease, and that any remaining teeth can be thoroughly cleaned. This will help to maintain a healthy mouth over the long term.
