If you have any lost teeth, it is important to have them replaced with due haste. By failing to replace missing teeth, you run the risk of letting the voids between the teeth become havens for plaque buildup and debris and even cause gum destabilization and tooth slippage to occur. Furthermore, missing teeth can weaken your jawbone and cause your face to sink in and look aged. To help reverse these effects, consider the use of dentures.
As dentures are removable tooth replacement systems that can be applied, it is important to care for them properly. In order to provide your dentures, the proper care, you will need to be cleaning them on a daily basis. However, they are fragile, so they need to be handled with care when removed. Always soak them in a denture-cleaning solution and avoid abrasive products on them such as teeth whiteners and bleach. Furthermore, rinse them off before placing them back into your mouth. Always avoid letting your dentures sit out anywhere, as they can dry out and crack. If any damage has occurred to your dentures, bring them into our denturist for repairs.
