How do you care for your removable dentures?
Are you wearing removable dentures and wondering how to care for them effectively? At Claude Monet Dental Clinic in Croissy-Sur-Seine, we’re here to help. Follow our advice to ensure the longevity of your dentures and maintain excellent oral health.
What are the different types of dental prosthesis?
There are two main types of dentures: full dentures, for those who have lost all their teeth, and partial dentures, for those who still have some of their natural teeth. Both types can be removable and require special care.
How do you clean your dentures every day?
Daily cleaning is essential. Use a special denture toothbrush and avoid ordinary toothpastes that are too abrasive. Choose denture-specific products or a mild soap such as Marseille soap. Rinse your dentures in lukewarm water after each meal to remove food particles.
Why is good oral hygiene important?
Gently brush your gums, palate, inside of your cheeks and tongue in the morning before inserting your dentures. This will help remove bacteria and prevent germs from building up under your dentures.
How should I take care of my denture at night?
We recommend that you remove your dentures at night to allow your gums to breathe. After cleaning, it’s best to leave your dentures dry in their perforated storage box.
How can I prevent stains and discoloration on my dentures?
Soak your dentures in a special cleaning solution on a regular basis. Follow the soaking time instructions to avoid damaging your dentures.
Why is it important to see your dentist regularly?
Regular visits to your dentist allow you to check the fit of your dentures and the overall health of your mouth. This will help prevent problems and ensure that your dentures remain comfortable.
By following these simple steps, you can extend the life of your removable dentures and maintain a healthy mouth. Claude Monet Dental Office is here to help you with your dental care.
