Partial or full tooth loss can affect your self-confidence if not treated. It can also increase your risk of developing other systemic health and nutritional problems. Luckily, dentures can bring back your smile and make chewing and eating a normal process again.
Dentures are removable and replace your natural teeth. Dentures are designed to look like natural teeth and are carefully crafted to match your smile’s appearance.
Denture Care and Maintenance
The care and maintenance of your dentures depend on the type of denture being used. Dr. Sankepally will detail the do’s and don’ts when wearing dentures, but there are a few general rules which need to be followed by each patient:
- Dentures need to be worn continuously in the first few weeks until the patient gets used to them. Afterward, the denture can be removed during the night for additional comfort.
- When not in use, the dentures must be placed in a special container and fully covered with water to preserve flexibility.
- Dentures need to be cleaned every day with a non-abrasive cleanser and a toothbrush with soft bristles.
- Visit the dentist regularly for adjustments and routine checks on gums and remaining teeth.
