Sometimes, due to accidents, tooth decay, or other emergencies, you end up with missing teeth. If that has happened to you, consider using dentures to fill in your smile!

 

Sometimes losing teeth causes the skin and tissues of your face to sag. This makes you look much older. Dentures will help fill out your face shape! They also make it easier to chew food and to speak.

 

There are two primary kinds of dentures: partial dentures and complete dentures. Partial dentures replace one or more missing teeth in a row; complete dentures fill in all of your teeth. Both appliances offer natural-looking results.

 

Rinse your dentures before brushing them to remove any loose food. Brush your denture appliance using a soft-bristled toothbrush and a non-abrasive cleaner. Don’t use abrasive kinds of toothpaste. When not wearing your dentures, store them covered in water to prevent warping.

 

It is important with dentures to maintain excellent oral hygiene routines. Brush your gums, tongue, cheeks, and roof of your mouth before putting in your dentures for the day. Brushing helps stimulate tissues and prevents plaque buildup and halitosis. Plaque buildup can lead to gum disease and other oral health emergencies.
