3 Effective Denture Care Tips, Rhinelander, Wisconsin

Dentures are a fantastic way to keep your smile alive if you’ve dealt with extensive damage and tooth loss. Whether they’re full or partial, you need to properly care for them. They’re a long-term investment, and you want to be confident you’re maximizing their lifespan. Put the following tips to practice to keep your mouth healthy and your dentures stable.

Top Care Tips for Dentures

1. Brush Regularly

denturesJust because they’re prosthetics doesn’t mean dentures don’t need cleaning. Acids and decay-causing bacteria can still wear them down, and they’re susceptible to staining as well. You need to brush every day, so speak with your dentist about approved products and for a demonstration on how to properly brush them.

2. Soak Them Overnight

Over time, your dentures may warp and not fit comfortably in your mouth. This can be painful, affect speech, and make it difficult to eat. Soaking them every night will ensure they stay hydrated and maintain their original shape. Always use dentist-approved soaking and cleaning solutions and speak with your cosmetic dentist if you experience any issues with the fit so adjustments can be made.

3. Handle With Care

Dentures are built to last, but they can still be damaged. Make sure to handle them with care whenever you put them in or take them out. Dropping them can lead to warping and bending that affects the fit. Be careful when they’re in your mouth as well; chewing your fingernails or ice and biting hard foods can lead to significant damage.
