Just like natural teeth, dentures require maintenance and upkeep. Clean dentures promote better gum health and fresher breath.
Your dentist in Garland, TX, recommends:
- Soaking your dentures overnight in a denture bath. You can add cleaning tablets to help kill germs
- Brushing your dentures with a cleaning brush and denture polish intended for these prosthetics—never use toothpaste
- Rinsing your dentures in room-temperature water following meals
- Bringing your dentures into the dental office periodically for professional cleanings
You risk gum disease without proper cleaning, making it difficult or impossible to wear your prosthetic. Gum disease can also lead to future tooth loss, which means your partial denture will no longer fit. Studies also link gum disease to severe conditions like heart complications and systemic health issues.
When It’s Time for a New Denture
