You did everything you could to save those teeth…but father time just doesn’t lose. As we get older, dental loss is far more likely to happen. Most of the time, it’s inevitable. However, this harsh reality doesn’t mean you need to just toothlessly grin and bear it. Nope—quite the opposite. Treat yourself to a full smile through Wayne Dental Care ‘s North Haledon Dentures.
It’s really that easy. Keep in mind that dentures come with their fair share of responsibilities. For starters, you must be very, very diligent in taking care of them. You can’t clean them the same way you would natural teeth. Instead of using toothpaste (an abrasive that potentially creates tiny scratches on dentures), clean with a soft-bristle brush… and water. Stay away of the hard bristle variety because they’re known to wear down ventures. As you clean, make sure to apply gentle pressure. What do you rinse with? A denture cleaner like mild dishwashing liquid and/or hand soap are great options. Repeat after me, “I will never use bleach to clean my fancy new North Haledon dentures.” Good. Congratulations, you just avoid turning the gum portion of the denture into a porcelain white strip. If you’re not wearing them (during sleep, etc.), make sure to drop them into a solution-filled container for a nightly soak—just make sure the dentures don’t have metal attachments while doing so. Depending on your situation, you may or may not need full or partial dentures, so keep that in consideration.
So many rules, right? Don’t worry about it. Maintaining dentures is an easy task. You just need to form the habit—shouldn’t take long. The first thing you’ll want to do is get yourself informed by speaking to one of our professionals at Wayne Dental Care before sprinting straight toward North Haledon dentures.
