Learn About Denture Care

You did the research, had a professional evaluation done and now you have your new denture in place. Next you need to find out everything there is to know about how to care for your new teeth and what to expect from them.

Although wearing a denture is not the same as having your natural teeth, there is some similarity. You will need to brush your denture every day just as you did your teeth, in order to prevent staining and to remove food particles. The only difference is that you will use a specially made toothbrush and a non-abrasive paste. There are many brands on the market today, always check the label for the Seal of Acceptance from the American Dental Association.

Don’t let your denture dry out, it could lose its shape. When you’re not wearing it keep your denture in a soaking solution or in cool water to avoid shrinkage. Ask your dentist for product recommendations.

Your new denture will most likely need a bit of adjustment, most do. Your dentist will arrange for a follow-up appointment just for this purpose. Home repair kits are not recommended.

A new denture will take some getting used to but be sure to let your dentist know if you experience any unexpected complications.
