We supply everything you need for Melbourne dentures. Having all the information you need to properly care for them is important. Keeping stain free and clean is the best way to get the most from this dental appliance.
Here’s a few things you’ll need to know to keep the looking is much like your natural teeth as possible.
- Soak Them. Some of these maintenance tips will be similar to the dental routines you went through with your original teeth. Others, like this one, will be completely different. Your Melbourne dentures need to be soaked overnight so they keep their shape. Many of our patients use a mild denture/water solution. If you buy something designed especially for this, follow the manufacturer’s directions.
- Dentures need to be brushed every day. A nonabrasive cleaner and a soft bristle toothbrush are the tools to get the job done here. Clean your dentures off before you put them back in your mouth. It’s best to keep denture cleaner away from your gums.
- If you’ve got natural teeth left, follow a good oral hygiene routine. That means brushing and flossing twice a day. You can clean your gums and cheek as well as the roof of your mouth with a soft bristle toothbrush.
- Be careful when you’re handling your Melbourne dentures. They have clasps and plastic parts that can break if you drop them. We suggest putting a towel on the floor under the sink as a precaution.
Dentures should always fit snugly. If you find them loose for any reason, you should get in touch with us right away. Our number one priority is making sure you can eat the foods you like with these dental appliances. If they aren’t fitting properly, your speech can be affected or they can even slip in your mouth.
Regular Checkups to Spot any Issues
Loose dentures can cause a number of issues including infections and irritations. Getting fitted for them is only the first step. We always like to suggest that you keep in touch. Coming in for regular checkups is the best way to spot any issues before they develop.
These scheduled checkups are a good idea for another reason. We’d be more than happy to do a professional cleaning on your Melbourne dentures at that time. Our patients always come first. Their oral health is always our number one priority.
