To help your dentures last and to keep your mouth healthy, it is important to maintain good oral hygiene. If you come to our office at Sharda Family Dentistry, our team can help give you tips on how to take care of your dentures. Our office can help you develop daily habits for proper upkeep.
It is important to keep on top of hygiene every day. Though your dentures are appliances, they should still be taken out and cleaned each evening. We suggest that patients clean them with a soft bristled toothbrush. Instead of using normal toothpaste, which is often too abrasive on the synthetic tooth, our dentist will recommend that you use a denture cream. To prevent your dentures from warping or becoming misshapen, do not rinse with hot water. Dentures can dry out, so once they have been cleaned, keep them in a water or denture solution.
Visit Dr. Alok Sharda regularly for touch-ups and realigns. Our practice can repair damage, lighten stains and adjust the dentures to relieve irritated gums and prevent infection.
