If you are trying to decide if dentures are right for you, you are not alone. Many people struggle with choosing dentures over restorative dental treatments, because it is a huge decision and life-long commitment. That is why our team is here to help you understand how dentures work and interact in your life.
As you may already know, dentures are removable teeth that are designed to sit on your gums and jawbone. Dentures are used for more than talking and eating. Dentures also keep your jawbone in place to maintain the structure of your bones and muscles in your oral cavity and face.
New dentures can feel awkward and unusual until you become accustomed to the feel and care of them. Caring for dentures is important because it lengthens the lifespan of your appliance. You can care for your dentures by rinsing them off and brushing them gently with a soft-bristled toothbrush. Letting them soak overnight is important because drying out your dentures can cause them to warp over time, decreasing the denture’s lifespan.
If you have questions about how dentures can help you, please contact your dentist. Your dentist can address any questions or concerns you have about living with dentures as well as let you know if they are a great fit for you. So, call us today and let us give you a smile you can truly be thankful for this holiday season.
