Even if you’re only missing a single tooth, a tooth replacement will be needed. Partial dentures can be crafted for as little as a single tooth, whereas complete dentures can be crafted for entire rows of teeth. No matter what form of tooth replacement therapy you need, speak with your dentist to determine if dentures are a reliable option. If you do decide on dentures, it is important to make sure you’re taking care of them as needed.
In order to enhance your oral health care, it is important to have a complete smile at all times. This includes replacing teeth that have been lost to oral accidents or injuries. In addition, if you ever lost a tooth due to an extraction, it will need to be replaced as soon as possible. If left untreated, these voids can become party zones for plaque buildup and bacteria. In addition, your gum can weaken due to a deteriorating jaw which will lead to tooth slippages.
By using a tooth restoration treatment such as dentures, you can help strengthen your smile. However, dentures are extremely fragile and will need to be cared for at all times. Because they are removable, they will need to be soaked in a denture cleaning solution. If for any reason you should drop them, do not try to repair them yourself, but speak with your dentist about restorations. Furthermore, never leave them out to dry as they can easily chip and crack when doing so.
Avoid overly abrasive products that can easily damage your dentures. In addition, be sure to always clean out your mouth before inserting your dentures. Similarly, wash off any denture cleaning solution on your dentures before placing them back into your mouth.
