  • How do I clean dentures?

    Traditional removable dentures need proper care to stay clean, stains-free, and look great. Here are some cleaning steps and things to avoid when using traditional removable dentures:

    1. After eating, remove and rinse dentures by running water over them to remove food debris and loose particles.
    2. Handle them carefully and avoid bending or damaging the plastic or clasps during cleaning.
    3. Clean your mouth with a soft-bristled toothbrush after removing dentures.
    4. Brush your dentures once a day and soak them in a nonabrasive denture cleanser to remove food, plaque, and other deposits.
    5. Soak dentures overnight in a mild denture-soaking solution to keep them moist and maintain their shape.
    6. Schedule regular dental checkups so your dentist can ensure proper fit, prevent slippage and discomfort, and check the inside of your mouth to ensure it stays healthy.
    7. Also, avoid using abrasive cleaning materials, whitening toothpastes, products containing bleach on your dentures, and hot or boiling water that could warp them.
  • What are full dentures?

    Full dentures are cost-effective for replacing all teeth on one or both jaws due to severe dental issues like tooth decay or gum disease. They consist of a thin, gum-colored acrylic base with porcelain or acrylic teeth that look natural. Modern options, including implant-supported dentures, offer enhanced fit, appearance, and durability, allowing for a more secure and natural-looking smile. Customization options are available to ensure the dentures match your desired look, whether restoring your former smile or creating a new one.

  • What are partial dentures?

    Partial dentures are a cost-effective option to replace missing teeth, improving both chewing and appearance. They consist of a thin metal frame that supports natural-looking replacement teeth designed to fit snugly and comfortably in the mouth. Partial dentures not only fill in the gaps but also prevent the shifting of remaining natural teeth. Advances in dental technology have introduced the option of using implants to support partial dentures, offering a better fit and feel. The goal is to restore a full, confident smile with minimal inconvenience.
