Dentures Represent the Next Best Option After Dental Implants for Missing Teeth

18th September 2013 | Posted by: SpaDental Administrator

 While you cleanse/brush your dentures every day, make sure to place them on a soft cloth (such as a towel), in order to avoid braking or chipping them. 

Look after your dentures

Look after your dentures

 Dentures need to be cleaned at least once a day, using a non abrasive toothpaste. Also, ensure to use a soft bristle brush so that you will avoid scratching your dentures or making them look dull.

There are plenty of special solutions available at the chemist which can be used to soak your dentures overnight. These solutions will help eliminate any bacteria or food particles from the dentures.

In the morning, you will be able to put on a set of dentures which are clean and fresh, so use these solutions on a daily basis. Before wearing your dentures, you should always rinse them thoroughly under running water. 

Thanks to the advancements in dentistry technology, the dentures now look more natural than ever. In fact, a skilled laboratory technician can create for you dentures which are in a perfect harmony with your physiognomy, and dentures which look just like the dental implants. So nobody will actually be able tell whether you are wearing dentures or have dental implants.

Depending on your current needs, you can opt  or partial dentures which will replace a few missing teeth or full dentures which replace an entire arch of missing teeth. It is extremely important to choose a skilled dentist who will create for you the most natural looking and comfortable set of dentures.

There are also implant retained dentures, which are a lot more secure. These can be removed, and they are fitted in the mouth with the help of 2 or 4 dental implants which will stabilise the dentures.

It doesn’t matter which type of dentures you choose- the most important thing is to pay attention to every day dental care. Also avoid chewy or very hard foods which could damage your dentures.

In order to avoid changes in the shape or colour of the dentures when they are not worn, they should be kept moist. Again, there are many denture solutions which allow you to keep your dentures moist.

If our dentures have got metallic parts, normally you should not soak them in water as these tiny attachments can tarnish over time. Talk to your dentist about alternative dentures care option when these have got metallic components.

Under all circumstances, avoid placing your dentures to soak in hot water, as these can easily warp.

If your dentures feel uncomfortable, never actually attempt to repair or adjust them by yourself. Call your dentist, tell them about the problem and he will carry out proper adjustments or repairs to make the dentures fit comfortably.
