Dentures are a great option for people who are missing multiple teeth, making it easier to talk and eat, as well as creating an improvement in your smile. Dr. Barret Davidson and the experts at Texas Sage Dentistry in McKinney, TX offer full and partial dentures for adults of any age.
Our dentures are designed to look natural and realistic, but you must also properly maintain your appliance to ensure it remains healthy and safe to use.
Here are a few recommendations you can follow at home to keep your dentures clean and in good working order.
Brush after each meal
Soak your dentures overnight
Avoid using hot water
Keep your mouth clean after removing the dentures
Your mouth can also influence how well your dentures work. Be sure you clean your mouth after you remove your dentures by cleaning out the adhesive materials around your gums. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush to clean out the adhesive. You can use a bit of gauze around the cheeks and other soft spots in your mouth to remove anything. The gums will need to stay clean to ensure you can maintain a healthy grip on your dentures without risking them slipping off or becoming too weak.
