The complete denture provided for you by the dental restoration specialists at Wendy Quiroz, DDS was designed to replace the basic function and appearance of your missing teeth. Maintaining the removable dental appliance each day will help preserve its full function, help prevent bad breath, and ensure a comfortable fit with your underlying gum structure.
Many denture wearers appreciate denture adhesive for its ability to help lock dentures in place while also blocking out stray food particles.
You will need to remove your dentures each night and give them a thorough rinse under running water. Once this is done you can brush them lightly with a nonabrasive toothpaste to remove food material and plaque. You can then soak them and store them overnight in a secure place.
Many people with dentures like to clean their tongue once a day with a toothbrush or tongue scraper. This helps to remove plaque and bacteria to prevent bad breath.
