How to Get a Lifetime of Use Out of Your Dentures

Valley Dental Care understands that dentures can be a major investment, but they also provide an invaluable improvement to the quality of life for those that are missing teeth. Although dentures may take a little time getting used to, with these helpful tips, they can also provide a lifetime of enjoyment and use.

Take Your Time to Adjust

Getting new dentures will likely take some getting used to. It may even affect your speech and eating habits. This, however, will only be an adjustment period before you get used to them and learn how to use them. It won’t be long before your new teeth are feeling great, and looking even better.

Get the Right Fit

Your dentures will be custom made and fitted using the impressions of your teeth for a more natural feel. If your new dentures feel off at all in any way, don’t be shy, let our dentist and staff know! A simple adjustment is usually all that is needed to get them fitting and feeling better. A better fit will also help guard against breaks in the long-run.

Keep Your Dentures Clean

Your new teeth also will take some maintenance just like your old ones. Dirty dentures can also give you bad breathe or gum disease. Thoroughly cleaning them on a regular basis will help guard against both. Allow them to soak in a cleaning solution at night and also rinse them after ever meal.
