What Are Dentures?
Dentures are natural-looking, removable replacement teeth. At North Shores Dental, we offer both full dentures and partial dentures.
Full dentures are used when a patient’s natural teeth have all been removed. Once the gum tissue has healed, conventional full dentures are secured in place by hugging the contour of your jaw - creating a seal against your gums. They are removable for easy care and are adjusted to uniquely fit each patient.
If you aren’t missing all of your teeth, a partial denture can be used as an alternative to a bridge or multiple dental implants. These removable partial dentures clasp into place, supported by your existing teeth. This type of denture is generally considered as a removable alternative to a dental bridge or dental implants.
How Do I Take Care Of My Dentures?
Dentures, just like natural teeth, require daily care in order to stay clean and keep dangerous bacteria from growing on them. It’s important to keep your dentures clean in order to keep your smile healthy!
Always handle your dentures carefully. Remove and rinse your dentures after eating, and brush them at least once a day. Use a soft-bristled brush and a gentle cleanser to remove food particles and other deposits. Make sure to soak your dentures in water or a denture-soaking solution overnight in order to keep them moist; this helps them keep their shape. Always rinse your dentures before putting them back in your mouth.
Please note that over time due to normal wear and tear and the changing shape of your mouth, dentures may need to be replaced or refitted. If your denture feels like it isn't fitting properly anymore, it is important for your jaw alignment to make an appointment with North Shores Dental to have them evaluated. We offer an in-house denturist and in-house laboratory for your convenience!
