Preventing denture damage
Sometimes, it’s impossible to prevent accidents, but if you do have a denture, it’s really beneficial to try and look after it as best as you can. When you’re not wearing your denture, keep it somewhere safe and always clean your denture over a bowl of water or a soft cloth or towel. This will help to prevent damage if the denture does slip out of your hands.
We recommend attending regular dental appointments to make sure that your denture works effectively and prevent sore spots and irritation. Your mouth changes shape on a continual basis and this means that the denture may not fit as well as it did to begin with after a period of time. If you start to find your dentures uncomfortable or you’re struggling with them in any way, don’t wait for your next scheduled appointment. Give us a ring and we’ll do our best to find a solution swiftly.
