Like any other type of dental prosthetic, new dentures can require extra care to keep them in good condition. At Tysons Dentistry, we want you to get many years of good use from your dentures.
Here are a few basic steps you can follow to make sure that your dentures are protected from damage.
Cleaning Properly – Use only a product that is specifically made to clean dentures. Regular toothpaste is too abrasive and can damage your new dentures.
Protect from Heat – Your dentures are designed to be very durable, but it is best not to subject them to extreme heat. Over time, this may cause the dentures to warp and lose their proper fit.
Handle with Care – Dropping dentures is one of the most common accidents and can cause the plate of your denture to break or even knock one of the teeth off. Place a soft, clean towel on a flat surface to protect your dentures when cleaning or handling them.
