Replacing missing teeth is essential for optimum oral health. If you suffer from severe oral health ailments or have any missing teeth, it can lead to bone loss and lead to poor oral health. In order to restore all lost functions associated with missing teeth, visit your dentist for an oral examination to determine if tooth replacement systems such as dentures are right for you.

Are you aware of the risk to your smile if missing or lost teeth are not replaced? Not only can serious oral ailments such as gum destabilization, tooth slippage, a weakened jawbone, and a sunken in facial structure occur, but dental erosion can also arise due to the fact that plaque and bacteria can manifest in the gaps left behind. Thus, an effective tooth replacement prosthetic will be needed, such as dentures.

To ensure your dentures can provide decades of continuous support, make sure you care for them properly. They are fragile, so handle with care. In addition, take them out of your mouth and immediately place them in a denture cleaning solution to ensure they can be effectively cleaned and decontaminated. Furthermore, never use abrasive cleaning products on them such as hot water and always remember to rinse them off before inserting them back into your mouth. In addition, never set them aside to dry out as they can crack and chip. If any damage should arise on your dentures, do not try to repair them yourself, but rather bring them to your dentist for a restoration.
