A4  Caring for Dentures

Care for your dentures

•  Brush your dentures daily. Like natural teeth, it is important to brush your dentures to remove food and

plaque. Brushing also prevents the development of permanent stains.

•  Use a brush with soft bristles that is especially designed for cleaning dentures. Hard bristled brushes can damage your dentures. Gently brush all surfaces, being careful not to damage or bend the attachments.

•  Rinse dentures after every meal. Keep them in a denture cleanser soaking solution or water when you’re not wearing them so they don’t dry out or lose their shape.

Once you begin wearing dentures, you want to make sure your oral hygiene and health remain in good shape. Here are a few things you should regularly check on and keep your denturist informed about:

Check the fit of your dentures regularly

Your mouth is constantly changing; this means your gums aren’t the same size as they were the day your dentures were made. It’s important to have regular check-ups so that your dentures continue to fit well.

Get frequent checkups for abnormalities

Abnormalities can arise at any time and in rare, serious cases, this can lead to oral cancer. A regular checkup and oral screening by your denturist may help to prevent these issues.

Update your medical history

Medications can greatly affect the tissues of the mouth, the saliva, and the ability of the body to fight bacteria in the oral cavity. Be sure your medical records are always up to date.

Check for denture wear

Dentures can wear over time, causing difficulties in chewing and speaking. The Comox Denture Clinic can identify denture-wear and make any needed corrections.

Check for TMJ Syndrome

TMJ or Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome can be triggered by several factors such as injury to or misalignment of the teeth or jaw, poor posture, or arthritis.

Symptoms include:

·   dizziness

·   popping sound in the jaw joint

·   neck pain

If you suffer from any of these conditions, consult your denturist.
