Dentures (also known as false teeth) are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth; they are supported by the surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity. Conventional dentures are removable However, there are many denture designs, some which rely on bonding or clasping onto teeth or detanl implants . There are two main categories of dentures, the distinction being whether they are used to replace missing teeth on the mandibular arch (upper jaw) or on the maxillary arch (lower jaw).
Dentures are False Teeth, but they still need to be cleaned everyday just like your natural teeth.
Using a soft, small headed, brush & apply a little non abrasive toothpaste to clean your denture as you would your own teeth. Do not scrub.
Most soakers are chemilcally based & overtime can eat into your acrylic denture. We recommend a citric acid based denture soaker. or Use a nice tasting mouth wash, dilute a little in a glass of water & soak for 30 minutes.
If dropped, expect your denture to break or be damaged in some way. Please take your time to clean your denture, & don't clean them while in the shower. Lay a wet facewasher in the bottom of the sink to help absorb the fall if you do drop them.
Some medications or foods will over time calcify on your dentures. If left unattended over time this can be impossible to remove. After every meal please clean your dentures to remove any food particles.
It may seem simple to glue your denture back together. Leave the repair for the prosthetist. If you try to repair it yourself you will create an ill fitting denture that then may be costly or even impossible to repair then you will certainly need to buy new dentures.
