Maintaining Your Dentures

How dentures from your dentist in Wichita, KS, can restore your smile

Dentures are a great way to replace your missing teeth and restore your beautiful smile. When you invest in dentures, you are investing in yourself, and you want your investment to last. Proper care and maintenance of your dentures are critical to getting the most out of your dentures.

Dr. Lance Anderson in Wichita, KS, offers a full range of dental care services, including dentures to restore your smile.

Taking care of your dentures doesn’t have to be difficult or takes a lot of time. Just remember to:

  • Always handle your dentures carefully, because they can break if you drop them.
  • Don’t bend the plastic or the clasps.
  • After you eat, take your dentures out and rinse them off to remove food particles and keep the dentures from irritating your tissue.
  • Use a soft toothbrush to gently brush your soft tissue, which helps to decrease harmful bacteria in your mouth.
  • Clean your dentures with an over-the-counter denture cleanser every day, which helps to remove any denture adhesive, food particles, plaque, and other debris.

Another important way to take care of your dentures and your oral health is to never wear your dentures when you go to sleep. Bacteria builds up underneath your denture and can inflame and infect your soft tissue.

Soak your dentures in a denture-soaking solution while you sleep. This helps to keep your dentures from drying out and keeps them comfortable for you to wear.

Before you place the dentures back in your mouth, make sure they are rinsed free of soaking solution. Don’t use hot water on your dentures because it can affect the fit and comfort of your denture.

Only use gentle products on your dentures; avoid using whitening products, harsh chemicals, abrasive agents, and sharp tools on your dentures.

Remember to visit your dentist regularly for an examination of the fit and condition of your denture.
