Conventional Complete Dentures
Dentures are delicate in nature and need special care so that they don’t break. They should be handled with care at all times. When you receive your dentures, our knowledgeable team will discuss proper handling and cleaning instructions with you before you leave. Our advice will include:
Proper storage: Dentures can dry out and lose their shape. Store your dentures in room-temperature water and keep them away from children and pets.
Cleaning techniques: Dentures require special care when cleaning. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a cleanser specifically for dentures. Rinse the appliance thoroughly before storing or reinserting into your mouth.
Nutrition: Some foods may be off limits to you when you wear dentures. Food items like candy, ice, and nuts can damage your dentures.
Dental exams: We recommend regularly scheduled appointments every six months to check on the longevity of your dentures and oral cavity.
