The Steps to Building a Better Smile: Dentures

Posted .

Oral accidents and injuries do tend to occur around the holiday season. If you happen to suffer any oral accidents or injuries, or if an oral health condition becomes known, a tooth extraction may be required, and a future tooth replacement will be needed. If you require a tooth replacement, consider the benefits of detachable tooth prosthetics known as dentures.

If you do choose a pair of dentures, it is essential to continue to care for them as you would your own natural teeth. Even though they do need to be cleaned, you will need to use alternative cleaning tools, like traditional products including toothpaste may be too abrasive and can easily damage them. Furthermore, avoid using teeth whiteners, bleach, hot water or other similar abrasive products on them.

When taking out your dentures for nightly cleanings, always place them in a denture-cleaning solution so they do not dry out. Before inserting your dentures back into your mouth every morning, it is a good idea to wash the dentures with normal water to remove any harmful cleaning chemicals that may be on them.

If you are missing any lost teeth, dentures can be designed to match your exact dental profile. This means you can have your dentures customized and modified for the look and feel your smile requires. In addition, dentures can be crafted for as little as a single tooth or just a few, known as partial dentures, or for complete rows of teeth, known as complete dentures.
