What Are Dentures?
Dentures are a wonderful way to bring back your smile. They’re gum-colored acrylic bases that have false teeth connected to them. They can complete your smile if you’re missing all of your teeth in your upper or lower jaw or just a few teeth. When you have missing teeth, the shape of your cheeks and lips can appear hollow. While this look can age you a few years, not to worry. Our full and partial dentures fill out your face, so you can look and feel great!
Traditional dentures sit directly on the gums and can be removed at any time. Upper dentures are secured by suction, while the lower dentures are held in by gravity. You can even use denture adhesive to create a better fit for your mouth.
If you are only missing some teeth, partial dentures are a great option to fill in those gaps. Partial dentures will also improve the experiences of eating, speaking and smiling. They too are removable and made with an acrylic base and a metal framework to attach easily to your natural teeth.
Taking Care of Your Dentures
Dentures should be brushed with a soft-bristled toothbrush or a denture brush. You should not use toothpaste on dentures because it is too abrasive. Instead, you should use toothpaste made specifically for dentures or a special dentures cleanser. It is also important that you never boil your dentures or soak them in hot water, as this can warp the acrylic of your dentures and ruin the way they fit. Dentures should be brushed daily, and to improve your oral health, you should also gently brush your gums and tongue to remove plaque and to generate circulation to the tissue.
