Getting dentures through our Buena Park Prosthodontic services doesn’t need to be challenging. In fact we have put together some tips to make the transition from natural teeth to beautiful Prosthodontics seamless.
Avoid Some Foods
Fortunately there are only a few life changes involved with wearing dentures. However, one of them is deciding to leave some of the foods that you may have loved behind. For example, corn on the cob can be a problem for denture wearers. Sticky treats like caramel can stick to your dentures and discolor them over time.
However, there’s a bright side. Getting dentures is a great time to decide on eating more healthy snacks like smoothies and softer fruit.
Soak Your Dentures
It’s important to keep your dentures clean. However, there is a different process involved here. We recommend that you soak your dentures in a non-abrasive cleaner. It’s the best way to get rid of any plaque and tartar and that may have built up on them.
Make sure that you follow the directions on the package carefully. As well, it’s never a good practice to put denture cleanser in your mouth. Always make sure to rinse your dentures off thoroughly before you put them back in after using a cleaner.
Get Rid of Plaque
It’s important to brush your teeth, mouth and gums every day even when you wear dentures. Use a soft bristle toothbrush and brush your gums and the insides of your mouth every morning before you put in your dentures.
If you get into this routine every morning, you’ll eliminate the kinds of bacteria that can cause irritation and bad breath.
Take Them Out At Night
Take your dentures out at night to give your gums and mouth a rest. It’s also a good idea to soak your dentures overnight while you sleep. This prevents them from drying out and it also helps them to maintain their form.
Finally, an adjustment to wearing dentures can take anywhere from several days to several weeks. Many people need to learn how to talk with these dentures in place. One of the best ways to do that is to read out loud to yourself.
The Buena Park Prosthodontic services we offer can provide you with all kinds of excellent advice about wearing your dentures. We can even supply you with the names of a few of the best adhesives.
