Proper and Sustainable Ways to Take Care of Glen Dale Dentures
- Posted on: Jun 15 2013
Once you lost a set of teeth, whether in the upper or lower portion of your jaw or both, your dentist will recommend a restorative procedure. The restorative dentistry may usually consist of implant or denture devices.
A capable dentist will recommend a device that is apt for your specific dental needs, health condition and desire. The underlying goal is to enable you to perform oral functions back to normal level as possible: chewing, smiling and speaking.
Glen Dale Dentist Dr. Charles Wylie is highly experienced and skilled in restorative denture solution: both the partial and complete variety. He will look into your overall oral health and design a denture restoration plan that can make you eat and smile like you should before the teeth started to fall out.
Upon creation and casting of dentures, thorough adjustments will be undertaken to make the device fit perfectly to your jaw and for the denture color and shape to blend well with your remaining healthy teeth. The Glen Dale Dentures are devised from quality materials of proven strength and durability. You will be expected to smile nicely for a long time.
But then again, like your natural teeth, you also need to take care of your dentures. Dr. Wylie will provide you with detailed instructions and tips to maintain the health and longevity of the dental devices.
Some of these steps are helpful to keep your dentures constantly fit and functional:
- Night time is soak time. Like your body, your dentures also need hours of break and the best way to do it is to soak them at night with warm water for 6 to 8 hours.
- Handle gently. Dentures may be damaged easily with recklessness, so you have to handle them with extra caution when cleaning and keep them away from children’s reach.
- Cleaning is daily. Use a regular soft-bristled brush or a special denture cleaning brush to remove stains, tartar and bacteria that may accumulate from your dentures.
- Look out for fit changes. Due to gradual yet constant movements of your gums and bones, dentures may also move over time, which can lead to poor fitting and cause problems like sores, burning and pain.
- See Dr. Wylie. If you noticed changes in the fitting or any problem related to dentures, go visit Dr. Wylie and have them adjusted. At any rate, even if you haven’t noticed problems, you have to visit your dentist once a year for regular denture check-up.
