Have you ever suffered from a lost or missing tooth? If you have, you understand the potential risks involved with the rest of your smile. Even a single lost tooth can lead to a downturn in your oral hygiene and affect your speaking and eating patterns. Depending on the position of the missing tooth, several further oral health risks can develop, including tooth slippage and gum tissue infections. Tooth prosthetics can restore lost abilities and correct issues caused by missing teeth. One highly effective tooth replacement option to consider is dentures.

Dentures can be removed and attached as needed and soaked in a denture cleaning solution overnight to make sure they are cleaned and that they work effectively. However, when you do remove them, always make sure you handle them with care. Even if you drop your dentures once you can shatter them. Because they are extremely fragile, never leave them in an area where young children or family pets can get to them. Also, remember to never leave them sitting out, or they can dry out and crack.

If you do have dentures in place, are you taking the necessary steps to make sure they are cared for? Even if you neglect them for a single week, your dentures may end up failing you. This is because they need to be monitored for any potential risks that could arise. Furthermore, you will need to be careful with any products that you use on them and any issues that can cause damage to them. For more help with dentures or repairs, contact our doctor.
