Do you have a complete set of teeth? If you do have any missing teeth, it is important to have them replaced with a prosthetic such as dentures as soon as possible. This is because missing teeth can lead to tooth decay in your other healthy teeth as well as gum destabilization and tooth slippage. Furthermore, dentures can improve the look of your smile and fill out your dental profile.

When seeking out tooth prosthetics in the form of a removable replacement, dentures are the go-to option. Dentures are designed to replace any lost or missing teeth with highly effective alternatives. However, dentures are designed to be removable and need to be cleaned as needed on a daily basis. This includes making sure they are soaked in a denture-cleaning solution. Avoid using abrasive products on your dentures such as bleach, teeth whiteners, or hot water. Furthermore, never allow your dentures to sit out to dry, as they can easily dry out and crack. Dentures are also extremely fragile, so handle them with care. Because dentures must always remain clean, make sure to wash away any debris on them as needed, including washing away the denture-cleaning solution before inserting them back into your mouth.
