Denture care and maintenance

Dentures are artificial prosthesis, that replaces missing teeth. They are adapted by the surrounding soft and hard tissues, of the mouth. There are so many types of dentures like fixed dentures, removable dentures, complete dentures, partial dentures, and so on.

Complete dentures are used, when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. Immediate complete denture are made after the teeth are removed, and therefore the gum tissue has begun to heal. A conventional denture, is ready for placement in the mouth, about eight to twelve weeks after the teeth have been removed however bones and gums shrink over time especially during the healing period following tooth removal. The denture development process takes a few weeks and several appointments.

A dentist or prosthodontist (specialty dentist in replacing the missing teeth) determines the treatment ( denture ) plan that is best for you. Two series of jaw measurements were made at first. After that upper and lower jaw relation is made. Then they create a model wax form with teeth, and you will be assessed for tooth color, shape, and fit before the final denture is made. A new denture, may not be comfortable for a few weeks.  Your mouth, along with the tongue and cheeks, may take time for adapting to the new denture. In the initial days, placing the denture in the mouth, and removing may be difficult.

Now we focus on how to care for and maintain them. Generally, you should remove them every night, and place them in liquid denture cleaners or water. After every meal, you should remove and clean it. A solution of half the volume of vinegar and half the volume of water can be used as a denture cleaner, and it will make your denture whiter. In the market, you get different varieties of cleansers. Dentures are never placed in hot water. Denture adhesives are not a solution for fitting a loose dentures.
