Dental Dos and Don’ts for Your Adventure with Dentures

Dental Dos and Don’ts for Your Adventure with Dentures

Dentures today are affordable and can make life much more comfortable and enjoyable for people who are self-conscious or experiencing problems due to missing teeth. While dentures can greatly improve your look and your lifestyle, they call for proper dental care to maintain a good fit and your good health.

First of all, when cleaning and caring for your dentures, be extremely gentle with them. Avoid breaking your dentures by placing them on a soft towel during daily cleanings. Use a non-abrasive denture cleanser and a soft-bristle brush to gently clean your dentures at least once a day. Dentures can also be soaked overnight in either water or a special soaking solution for additional cleanliness. If you choose to use a soaking solution, be sure to rinse your dentures well before wearing them again. If possible, try to rinse your dentures with water after meals to remove any food particles and make your smile look its best.

Today, advances in dentistry have made dentures more affordable, comfortable, and natural looking than ever. There is no longer a stigma associated with dentures because their beauty and benefits make them appealing to many.

Whether you want a complete set of dentures to cover your entire mouth or a partial set to replace a few missing teeth, there are now a variety of choices to meet your personal dental needs, and the dream of affordable quality dentures is finally a reality.

Dentures can be either removable or permanent. Removable versions have always been popular because they are a comfortable, immediate, and affordable quality dentures solution. Permanent dentures resemble a dental bridge and are surgically implanted into the mouth. While they may have more stability than removable, more affordable quality dentures, they are more expensive because the fitting process and dental implant procedure are more complex.

To determine the type of dentures that are right for you, talk to a dentist in our Allentown office. They can explain the wide variety of denture options that can enhance your smile, improve your chewing ability, and boost your confidence.

To discover how comfortable, attractive, and affordable quality dentures can be, call Gentle Dental of Allentown today at (610) 616-3593 or make an appointment.
