Understanding proper denture care is necessary to preserve the patient’s overall oral health, as well as the length of time that the dentures will last.
Dentures require specific care that is different from the daily brushing and flossing routine.
The Dental Wellness Center of Florida is located in Brandon, Florida. To schedule your appointment and denture care consultation, call our office today.
Proper Care for Removable Dentures
When a patient has removable dentures, it is very important that they remove them each night and clean them thoroughly in order to maintain their optimal oral health. Food particles need to be rinsed off of the dentures and the appropriate specialty cleaner needs to be applied at least once each day. Everyday regular toothpaste is not to be used to clean dentures because the abrasive particles in the toothpaste can damage the base of the dentures.
What to Expect at Your Denture Care Consultation
During a consultation, the Dental Wellness Center of Florida will discuss where to purchase the appropriate cleaning solution and what kind of cleaner is necessary to use daily. A specific toothbrush is also to be used to properly clean the dentures.
Make sure that you keep the dentures above a towel or a soft surface when cleaning them because if you drop the dentures on a hard surface, they can break. It is also very important to keep the dentures wet at all times. If the dentures become too dry, they have the potential to become brittle and break easily. Be sure to ask the dentist if it is okay to leave the dentures in cleaning solution overnight, and if this would affect the length of time that the dentures would last.
When you follow the dentist’s guidelines, you are sure to enjoy the benefits of a beautiful smile by keeping your set of dentures in the best shape possible. Regular checkups will help to maintain your oral health, and to make sure that your dentures are working as they should.
If the patient has non-removable dentures, then the dentist will instruct the patient on the appropriate cleaning regimen necessary to maintain the life of the dentures, as well as what the patient needs to do to maintain their oral health.
