Whether you’ve been wearing dentures for years or are just starting out, it’s important to know how to keep your teeth healthy and looking great. With the right preventive steps, maintenance and repairs, you can save money over time and ensure your prosthetics last longer and work better.

The Importance Of Maintaining Dentures

Dentures are crucial in an individual’s oral health, significantly improving their quality of life by assisting in chewing, speech, and self-esteem. As such, ensuring your dentures are in optimal condition is crucial for your oral health and their performance and longevity.

When dentures are not properly cared for, they can become damaged or experience wear and tear, leading to discomfort, difficulty in speaking and chewing, and, ultimately, reduced quality of life.

They can also lead to various complications, such as sore gums, infections, and difficulties in mastication and enunciation. And, of course, dentures that have experienced considerable wear and tear can provide an unsightly appearance and often prompt the need for expensive replacements.

How To Take Good Care Of Your Dentures

Taking proper care of your dentures is essential to maintaining their durability, functionality, and aesthetics. You need to ensure you clean the dentures daily, handle them delicately, and visit your dentist regularly for check-ups and adjustments. By doing so, denture users can ensure that their dentures remain comfortable, functional, and long-lasting, allowing them to navigate daily life confidently.

Here are a few tips to help with proper denture care:

  •       When cleaning dentures, it is essential to do so gently to prevent potential damage. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a mild soap or a denture-specific cleaner to properly clean them, avoiding household cleansers and harsh chemicals that may cause harm.
  •       To prevent breakage from accidental drops, fill your sink with water or place a towel underneath so the dentures have a soft-landing spot should they slip from your fingers.
  •       Equally as important is to avoid exposing your dentures to extreme temperatures, such as hot water, as this can cause them to warp or break.
  •       For storage, always place them in a denture container with a proper soaking solution to ensure they remain moist and clean and maintain their shape when not used.

These recommendations will ensure your dentures last longer.

The Importance Of Regular Check-Ups With A Dentist

Taking care of your dentures is essential, not only for aesthetics but also the longevity. Regular check-ups with a denture specialist are a big part of ensuring any problems are found early and fixed quickly. During these check-ups, dental professionals can identify and address potential concerns in their early stages, effectively preventing the need for extensive and potentially costly procedures in the future.

By taking care of your teeth and gums regularly, you can keep them in great shape and protect your oral and overall health. In addition, regular visits to the dentist can even lower your risk of serious health conditions that have been linked to poor dental care, such as heart disease, diabetes, and respiratory issues.

Remember that prevention is always better than treatment, and regular dental check-ups can go a long way towards keeping your smile bright and healthy.

From my first phone call to Tomika explaining my situation with my teeth and how bad they were and that I didn't know where to start, to having my first free appointment with Elias was the best thing I have ever done. Tomika is very easy to talk to, friendly and professional. Elias, well he is great, told me exactly what he could achieve, the cost and the timeframe and he was spot on. Read more

Elias prepared a full set of dentures for my 90 year old mother. The service he provided was exceptional, using current technology effectively to create a set of dentures which were far superior to what she had previously had. Elias also made it very clear that my mother could go back at any time if minor adjustments were required. He gives meticulous attention to detail. Tamika ensures that appointments run to time.

State of the art technology and skills and ability to match. I went to the clinic highly anxious ( my previous dental encounter at another clinic resulted in a panic attack and blacking out twice whilst in the chair) due to the poor integrity of my teeth, as a direct result of a health condition I had lost the majority of my teeth and the remaining were nothing short of a train wreck. Elias treated me the utmost respect and kindness. Read more

A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth. At Aesthetic Dental and Denture Clinic, we offer two types of denture, complete and partial. Complete dentures are necessary when all your natural teeth are missing. A partial denture is used when some natural teeth remain. If you are having extractions, we can also provide you with an immediate denture. This is often an interim denture so you can avoid the embarrassment of being without teeth.

A denture usually lasts between five and seven years. Time and natural changes in the mouth will affect the fit and wear patterns of your denture. If your denture is worn and doesn’t fit as well as it used to, it may require a repair or reline. Having your denture checked every two years will help to ensure a proper fit and by following your denture care instructions, you’ll extend the life of your replacement teeth. 

Dentures don’t last forever. Dentures usually last between 5 to 7 years and need to be relined every 1 to 2 years. Over time dentures become worn and don’t fit as well, so it’s important to reline them regularly. The better you follow your denture care instructions, the longer your replacement teeth will last. 

It is advised that you visit your dentist every 6 months for a check-up and clean. This will help to prevent any major oral health issues from occurring. However, if you have bad breath, bleeding gums, discoloured teeth, cracked or chipped teeth, tooth or jaw pain it is advised to make an appointment with your dentist as soon as possible.

At Aesthetic Dental and Denture Clinic, we know attending the dentist can be difficult for nervous and anxious patients. We offer a number of options to help make your next visit as calm and stress-free as possible. Contact us today and a friendly dental technician will be able to give you all the options available.
