Advice And Tips On Caring For Your Dentures

brushing teeth in a dental clinic
  • The only person strictly qualified to diagnose matters concerning your oral health or make adjustments to your denture or partial is your dentist. No exceptions.
  • On a daily basis, dentures should be brushed with a large nylon denture toothbrush with round-ended bristles. Remember to brush inside and out.
  • Instead of toothpaste, use denture creams. Toothpaste is too abrasive and will scratch your denture. Always rinse with cold water.
  • Don’t place your dentures in hot water. This will cause them to warp.
  • Regularly inspect your denture for worn teeth.
  • Dentures that are worn and stained will not function properly and will make you appear older.
  • Don’t forget to discuss all the medications you’re currently ingesting with your doctor and dental professional.
  • Regularly make appointments to see your dental professional.
  • If you’re experiencing loose dentures, have them checked immediately as they can cause pressure and friction on the bones and gum tissues.
  • To prevent your dentures from drying out when they’re not in use, put them in water or a denture-cleaning solution.
  • Check your dental insurance policy to see what kind of coverage you have for dentures. Most policies provide coverage for dentures every 5 years.
