How to care for dentures

Posted 5 July 2016 in News

Heart Toothpaste

If you want to keep your dentures safe and you want to take proper care of your oral health, adequate dental care is a must. Here are a few tips to help you.

– First and foremost, be careful with your dentures. For instance, put a folded towel in front of you when you are handling your dentures or do this over a sink full of water. By doing this you will avoid the consequences of an accidental dropping.

– Just like teeth, dentures must be brushed and rinsed every day. However, when you are doing this, don’t use toothpaste because it is highly abrasive. With the help of regular brushing you will avoid food buildup and plaque as well as stay safe from stains. The best option is to use brushes that have soft bristles because hard bristles can damage them. You should brush all the areas on your denture and be especially careful when it comes to the plastic attachments. Finally, don’t forget to rinse them once you are finished with your meal.

– Using a denture cleaner is another practice that people who wear dentures must follow. In order to clean your dentures, you can use a mild liquid used for washing dishes or simple hand soap. As previously mentioned, toothpastes are highly abrasive and the same goes for household cleaners. There are special ultrasonic cleaners on the market and you may want to invest in a device like this to take care of your dentures. This special device relies on sound waves for complete cleansing of dentures. Keep in mind however that this device shouldn’t be used as an alternative to brushing.

– You should always take good care of dentures even when you are not using them. When they are not in your mouth, they must be stored in a place that has an adequate level of moisture. Use lukewarm water or a soaking solution for this purpose.

Wisdom tooth removal.

I had my lower wisdom tooth removed. To say that I was a nervous patient was an understatement. The dentist was very understanding and explained the process in stages where I could ask questions. Even though I was really panicking inside the staff had a true sense of calm and the tooth removal was quick and uneventful. I originally wanted sedation but felt confident to go without. The aftercare information was very useful. I experienced a first class service here!
