Take These Precautions For The Sake Of Your Dentures

If you have removable replacement teeth and have ever dropped them, you know just how fragile they can be. It can be a pretty frustrating thing to spend time and money to fix a problem only to go through that process again.

If you have a full or partial denture that is not held in place by dental implants, you’ll need to take your replacement teeth out to soak overnight and possibly more often if you need to remove and reapply denture adhesive before or after meals.

To decrease the odds that you’ll damage your custom tooth replacements, get into the habit of being as cautious as possible when you are handling them.

One recommendation we tell patients is to lay a soft towel on the hard surface of your sink when you are taking your teeth replacements out for cleaning or for any other reason. This way, if you do drop them, the landing will be cushioned and less likely to damage them.

You can also fill your sink with water before handling your removable teeth. Like the soft towel, this will provide a much gentler landing if you do drop your removable teeth. Make sure the water is not too hot as that could also damage your denture.

Another habit you could get into is staying low over your sink when you are handling your removable teeth. By minimizing the size of the fall if you drop them, you’ll stand a better chance of preventing a break of some kind or other form of damage.

Of course, we don’t want to stress you out in regards to your oral hygiene habits once you start using replacement teeth. We just want to help you maintain your restorative treatments as long as you can.

We’ll discuss care techniques with you and verify your mouth and replacement teeth are still in good shape when you visit us for your routine dental cleanings and exams every six months.

Regain your smile and keep it in great shape by properly handling and cleaning your dentures. Call Nashua Family Dentistry at 603-546-7460, visit us in person, or use our online form to schedule.
