Dentures are a
restoration method to allow you to continue eating and speaking like normal
even after you have lost your teeth. A general
can provide you with this restoration, but you need to make sure
you care for them properly. There are several ways to go about doing this.
1. Prevent Damage
Since dentures are
removable, they can be dropped and develop cracks that way. Even when they are
in your mouth, you should take certain steps to prevent any damage. For
example, do not bite down on anything excessively hard such as ice cubes or
2. Keep Dentures Soaked When Not in Use
When you are not
wearing your dentures, you need to keep them moist. Plain water can be used,
but you can also look into getting a specialized denture cleaning solution.
Keep this solution by your bedside so that first thing in the morning, you can
just pop them back in.
3. Brush Daily
You do not want to use
a regular toothbrush and toothpaste to brush your dentures on a daily basis.
You need to get a toothbrush that is specifically designed for dentures that
has soft bristles. You will also want non-abrasive toothpaste. Doing this daily
will prevent stains from building up on your dentures.
4. Look at Products Approved by the American Dental Association
There are so many
toothbrushes and pastes out there, and it can be a little overwhelming. You can
speak with a general dentist
pointed in the right direction, or you can keep an eye out for items with the
ADA Seal of Approval.
