You should not wear loose dentures. Loose dentures can cause excessive friction and pressure toward the gum tissues and bones, resulting in painful sore spots and bone shrinkage.
Dentures can warp if placed in hot water.
Dentures can change shape if they dry out. When not in use, cover dentures with water or a denture-cleaning solution to prevent them from drying out.
Dentures should be brushed inside and outside daily with a soft, large nylon denture toothbrush with round-ended bristles. Use denture creams instead of toothpastes, which are too abrasive and will scratch your denture. Rinse with coldwater.
Your mouth is constantly changing. Inspect your denture regularly for worn teeth. Be sure to visit your dental professional regularly as part of your recommended check up schedule.
Some medications can affect denture fit and wearability so be sure to discuss this with your doctor and dental professional.
Only your dental professional is qualified to diagnose your oral health and adjust your denture or partial.
Most dental insurance policies will pay for a new denture every 5 years.
Worn and stained dentures can make you look older and cause your dentures to function poorly.
