Learning About Dentures

Published on November 13th, 2019

Dentures are a set of artificial teeth that are meant to replace your missing permanent teeth. Dentures can either replace all your teeth in your upper jaw, your lower jaw, or both. Our dentures near Lakeview can also replace a few teeth, known as a partial denture or a bridge.

The Process

It’s possible that it will take some getting used to once you have dentures. You may feel a bit of discomfort with your new teeth, but after some time, the dentures will feel like a natural part of your mouth and smile.

The Benefits

Dentures are able to not only give you a restored smile, but they can also help restore your ability to properly eat food. You will also be able to speak clearer with your new teeth and improve the shape of your jawline. Ultimately, you will have a natural-looking smile without anyone noticing that you have dentures.

Caring For Dentures

Dentures now act as your natural teeth, so it’s important to know how to care for them. Plaque can form on the surface of your dentures and gums, so make sure you clean your mouth in order to prevent discomfort, infection, and bad breath. Here are some tips to follow:

  • Store the dentures in lukewarm water over night, not in hot water.
  • Clean your dentures with a brush meant specifically for them—rinse them and use a cleanser specific to dentures.
