Many of our patients believe that, once they have dentures instead of their original teeth, they can neglect their oral hygiene. That is not the right mentality to have. Dentures or not, everyone needs to take care of her or his mouth, tissues, and gums. It is important to schedule a dentist appointment every six months just to ensure that the teeth are in good condition. Systemic diseases such as cancer can show up in the mouth, so early identification and intervention through oral screenings is key.
There are certain oral hygiene practices that can preserve the integrity of the dentures. They need to be brushed, just as natural teeth are, and kept clean so that bacteria do not develop on their surface. It is advisable to soak them in water overnight, and your dentist can recommend which tablets and solutions available at any pharmacy are best suited for maintaining denture cleanliness.
