Dentures are a cost-effective solution to replace missing teeth, and our Clinical Dental Technician (CDT), Bill Sharpling, offers a range of dentures made to restore confidence in your teeth and smile.
Whether you have full or partial dentures, here are five top tips to looking after your dentures and keeping your mouth healthy:
Denture adhesive can be used to improve the fit of dentures, reducing any food trapped beneath, and instilling confidence in the security of your replacement teeth.
Soak dentures in a denture-cleansing solution daily to remove any plaque bacteria and disinfect them outside your mouth, following Bill Sharpling's or the manufacturer's guidelines.
Avoid breakages by cleaning dentures over a bowl of water or a towel.
Do not wear your dentures overnight (unless told to do so), to minimise infection and prevent soreness.
Maintain regular check-ups with your dentist to ensure your dentures are still fitting well, and your teeth and mouth are healthy.
