Cleaning Off Dentures

Posted .

Keeping your false teeth clean will help them last longer and fit better. The team at Smiles Unlimited in Livermore, California, has assembled this data to help you to clean and take care of your false teeth.

Dentures need to be cleaned often, so pick up a toothbrush if you don’t already have one. To keep the dentures clean, you’ll need to soak them in a denture cleanser each night; look for the varieties that are non-abrasive to limit wear on the dentures. While you might detect that there are some denture adhesives available for buying, please do not buy these before talking to Dr. Rakhi Jani. Modifications to the denture may avert the need for adhesives.

While dentures come in a whole host of different types, they can generally be categorized by the quantity of teeth they’ll be replacing: false teeth can be categorized into complete and partial kinds. Complete false teeth are fashioned to replace all of the patient’s teeth, and this is normally done when several pearly whites have already been lost and/or the bulk of remaining pearly whites are severely injured. If a number of the patient’s teeth remain healthy and in-place, partial dentures can be used to fill the gap.
