The joys of dentures can be seen all around. Not only can they give you back the functionality that teeth can bring, but they can improve your self-esteem too. Dentures come in a variety of styles, including partial dentures, which are used to fill in gaps left behind by a few missing teeth, or complete dentures, which can give you an entirely new set of pearly whites.
Dentures need to be cared for just as regular teeth do but in different ways. Because they are removable, they must be soaked in plain water or a denture-cleaning solution every night. Never leave dentures laying around, because they can easily dry out and crack or warp. Also never use normal toothpaste to clean them, as it may too abrasive to the dentures and damage them. Also avoid products such as teeth whiteners, hot water, and products with bleach.
When you experience tooth loss, there may be a loss of chewing, eating, and speaking skills that come with it. Habits that we take for granted, such as eating foods, can easily become difficult or impossible to perform. With dentures, you can fill in any gaps left behind and return the functionality of your teeth to your mouth once more.
