Dentures are a convenient and affordable option for dental patients who are missing teeth. Partial dentures fill in the gaps when there denturesare a few missing teeth, while full dentures replace an entire arch or row of missing teeth. Just like natural teeth, dentures require proper dental care and good hygiene to remain looking and functioning their best. If you need dentures in Delray Beach, FL, Dr. Henry Rodriguez-Martin and the staff at Brilliant Smiles Dental can fit you for partial or full dentures and advise you on the best way to take care of them so they last.

Cleaning Your Dentures

In order to help your dentures last as long as possible, it is important that they be cleaned regularly. After eating, it is a good idea to remove your dentures and rinse them in water to clear away any food particles that might have gotten trapped while eating. After removing and rinsing off your dentures it is a good time to clean your mouth as well. Gently brush all surfaces inside your mouth, including the roof of your mouth, your tongue and any natural teeth you still have remaining.

Dentures should be brushed and soaked at least once every day. When cleaning your dentures, be sure to wash off any adhesive that is still present. Before putting your dentures back in, always rinse them in clean water first. This is especially important after soaking the dentures in any type of cleaning solution in order to avoid getting any of the solution in your mouth. Finally, be sure to visit your dentist regularly to have your dentures cleaned professionally. Your Delray Beach dentures specialist can make sure your dentures still fit properly and are in good shape.

Things to Avoid

Just as important as thoroughly cleaning your dentures is, it is also important to avoid certain substances that can damage them. In general, it is best to avoid using abrasive cleaning agents, including harsh toothpastes and whitening toothpastes. Toothbrushes with stiff bristles should also be avoided, as they can scratch the surface of the dentures. Products containing bleach or chlorine should be avoided as well. Bleaching agents can weaken dentures, while chlorine solutions can corrode the metal components. Finally, hot water can warp dentures and should be avoided.

Dentures offer a simple way to renew your smile by filling in the gaps where teeth are missing. With proper care, dentures can last a long time. For dentures in Delray Beach, FL, schedule an appointment with Dr. Rodriguez-Martin by calling Brilliant Smiles Dental at (561) 272-2131.

Find out if dentures could offer you the new smile you’ve been looking for.

When you are dealing with significant tooth loss it can be a challenge to figure out which dental restoration will be the best option for Denturesyou. But don’t worry; your Delway Beach, FL dentist Dr. Henry Rodriguez-Martin is here to help you figure out if dentures could restore your smile or whether another treatment option would be better suited for your needs

Am I a Candidate for Dentures?

Pretty much any patient who has lost all or most of their teeth could benefit from dentures. The current health of your teeth and gums will dictate whether you will require partial or full dentures. Ideal candidates will also be willing to maintain good oral hygiene and care for their dentures properly.

If you have any of these issues dentures may not be the best option for you:

  • Significant jawbone loss (which will require bone grafting prior to getting your dentures)
  • A sensitive gag reflex
  • You grind or clench your teeth

Which Kind of Dentures Are Right for Me?

When you come in for your denture consultation, your Delway Beach cosmetic dentist will discuss your goals for treatment. Your lifestyle, habits and any health conditions you’ve been diagnosed with will determine which type of dentures are best. Here are the different types of dentures to choose from:

Full dentures: These dentures are the best option for someone who is missing all of their teeth.

Partial dentures: These dentures are good for patients who still have some healthy teeth.

Implant-supported dentures: Implants are placed into the jawbone where they anchor either permanent or removable dentures. Since implants fuse with the bone and tissue around it, implant-supported dentures are more stable then regular dentures.

Immediate dentures: These are a good option for those who need dentures the same day as a tooth extraction.

Come into our Delway Beach, FL dental office today to discuss your dental options. The team at Brilliant Smiles Dental is ready to give you a brand new smile to feel confident in. Schedule a consultation with us today!
