Dentures are artificial and removable teeth that are used in place of missing ones. They tend to fit snuggly to replace the missing teeth or fill the gaps. The dentures are made to fit in your mouth and are matched visually to your existing teeth. Dentures are made of acrylic, metal or nylon depending on the situation.
Three types of dentures are available to be used:
Just like natural teeth, dentures also need regular cleaning. Due to eating, bacteria and plaque can build up on dentures which can be harmful to the remaining teeth and gums. To clean them, take them out of the mouth and run clean water. Brush the dentures with a denture cleaner. After cleaning, rinse them thoroughly under running water.
If dentures are removed at night, they must be kept in a moist place like in water or denture cleaning solution. It will prevent them from drying up and changing shape.
Apart from cleaning dentures, it is also essential to maintain proper oral hygiene to prevent gum disease or remaining teeth from decaying. Brush your remaining teeth twice daily with a soft-bristled brush and using fluoride toothpaste. Keeping good oral hygiene and proper denture cleaning will allow the dentures to last longer than usual.
