Denture Care

A tooth brush in front of denturesAdvice and tips on caring for your dentures

  • Only your dental professional is qualified to diagnose your oral health and adjust your denture o partial.
  • Prótesis dentales should be brushed inside and outside daily with a soft, large nylon denture tooth brush with round-ended bristles.
  • Use denture creams instead of toothpastes, which are too abrasive and will scratch your denture.
  • Rinse with cold water. Prótesis dentales warp if placed in hot water.
  • Inspect your denture regularly for worn teeth.
  • Worn and stained dentures function poorly and can make you look older.
  • Discuss all your current medications with your doctor and dental professional.
  • Be sure to visit your dental professional regularly.
  • Have loose dentures checked immediately as they can cause friction and pressure on the gum tissues and bones.
  • When not in use, cover dentures with water or a denture-cleaning solution to prevent them from drying out.
  • Most dental insurance policies provide coverage for new dentures every 5 años.
