Your dentures should be checked on an annual basis to ensure optimum fit and comfort. As well as to check your oral health and if there's any changes in your mouth including your gums and tongue.
As with natural teeth, plaque tends to form around the teeth and you may experience profound denture odours. Therefore it is very important to clean your dentures on a daily bases as your health could be at risk. Looking after your gums is just important as looking after your Dentures. Red and swollen gums, that bleeds when brushing, could be a sign of gum disease.
Wear your new denture almost constantly during the first month – even while you sleep. Afterwards under normal circumstances it is considered best to remove your denture at night. Research has shown that by removing the denture for at least 4 hours a day, allows the gum tissue to rest and allows normal stimulation and cleansing by the tongue and saliva. This promotes circulation and better long-term health of the gums and reduced bone loss.

It is important to continue having regular dental checkups so that we may examine the oral tissues. As you age, your mouth will continue to change as the bone under your denture shrinks or recedes. To maintain a proper fit over time, it may become necessary to adjust or possibly reline your denture. Never attempt to adjust your denture yourself and do not use denture adhesives for a prolonged period as it can contribute to bone loss. - For further information and advice or to book an appointment – contact us or make an online booking.
A wide selection of denture cleaning products is available from Denturist Studio. We recommend the use a soft Denture brush to clean your denture, as ordinary tooth brushes are to hard and may damage or scratch your denture. Use a denture cleaner or paste, such as Polident Denture Cream as conventional toothpastes such as Colgate are to abrasive and will eventually thin out the acrylic base or causing premature wear and breakage.
When fitted with new dentures, you may expect a few pressure points and sore spots to develop, but don't persevere, call us and arrange to come in for an adjustment.
