The dentures fitted for you by your Express Dental Care team of dental professionals have been designed to replace the function and appearance of your missing teeth. Even though the dentures are made from materials that are not vulnerable to the natural bacteria in your mouth, they will still require daily care and cleaning. By including them in your daily oral hygiene routine, you can help extend their life and maintain the overall health of your mouth.
Denture adhesive in Lynnwood, Washington, is a popular product that helps many denture wearers secure their dentures in place. It also helps block out food particles. If you do have food particles come between your dentures and your gums, you should thoroughly rinse them and any residual adhesive away. You can then reapply more denture adhesive to the clean surface.
When you take your dentures out at the end of each day, you need to thoroughly rinse them to remove any plaque buildup and any residual adhesive. This should be followed by brushing the dentures with a soft-bristled toothbrush and denture polish. You should then soak the dentures overnight in water and keep them in a safe place.
Brushing and cleaning your tongue twice a day will also help stave off plaque buildup and will reduce your chances of developing bad breath.
