DENTURES

We are here to serve you when you need us most.

Denture is one of the removable appliance options for patients who would like to have their missing teeth replaced or to get a full set for a better food consumption and aesthetics. Aside from being cost-friendly, this option is also faster to get unlike the fixed replacement options.

Dentures: Getting used to new dentures

This varies patient to patient but we normally tell our patient to give yourself time to adjust to it and also time for the denture to adjust to you. In the span of 3-4 weeks try consuming only soft food first to practice its function because all of the muscles in the head and neck have to adapt to it. If you try to use your denture for example when eating hard food you might get sores here and there so again taking the time at least for the first month is very important. Slowly introduce the dentures and its use to your mouth and you will love the end result.     

Dentures: Care and Cleaning

Proper way of cleaning your full or partial dentures:

  • Carefully handle your dentures– make sure not bend or damage the plastic or the metal clasps when cleaning your dentures.
  • After removing your dentures, clean your mouth– it is always better if you use a soft bristle toothbrush to clean your remaining teeth, cheeks, tongue and palate. If you used any adhesive for the day, remember to always remove them and try not to leave any residue.
  • Take off and rinse every after meal– this is to remove any food debris and other particles keeping your dentures clean at all times.
  • Brush at least once a day– You can do this every end of the day or before going to bed. Use the soft bristle brush (these days there are denture brushes available too provided by your clinic or you can get them from selected grocery stores ) with the non-abrasive denture cleanser to remove plaque, food or any deposits. Never use the denture cleanser inside your mouth.
  • Overnight care- soaking your dentures: Place your dentures in water or denture solution if you have (follow the manufacturer’s instructions) as many types of dentures needed to stay moist to maintain their shape.
  • Thoroughly rinse your dentures before using them again– Especially if you used a denture solution to clean them as they can contain harmful chemicals that cause pain, burns or vomiting if swallowed.
  • Go to your regular checkup– Your denturist or dentist will tell you how often you should have your dentures examined and cleaned professionally. This is to make sure that the mouth is healthy and to maintain the fit to prevent loosening and discomfort.

Schedule a visit right away if you have a loose fit- See your provider promptly if dentures become loose because it can cause irritation, infection and sores.
