If you have dentures, either partial or full, then you realize there are many aspects to both the care of your dentures, and your mouth. There are the physical requirements, as well as the lifestyle requirements. Neither is overly complicated, which is why dentures have been and remain a cost effective solution – compared to implants or going without teeth. Today, 1 in 15 Canadian adults under 80 is using complete dentures. The Canadian Dental Association recommends seeing your dentist at least once a year if you have partial or complete dentures.
At Jasper Place Denture Clinic in Edmonton, we specialize in friendly, caring denture services carried out by a team of professionals, including our mobile denture services where we bring our services right to your door. Working with dentures is an art, a science, and a craft; it takes an understanding of how teeth look in various lighting situations and what types of base materials and relines offer the most comfort to the wearer.
To maintain that comfort, here’s a few tips for maintaining your full or partial dentures:
When it comes to lifestyle changes: it is important to brush your gums, tongue, and palate with a soft-bristled brush every morning to remove plaque and stimulates circulation in the mouth; remove dentures at night to avoid irritation, discomfort, and infection of the soft tissue beneath your denture; never attempt to adjust or repair dentures yourself, doing so can weaken the metal structure; and, be sure to contact your oral health care provider if a denture breaks, cracks, or chips or if one of the teeth becomes loose. If you have questions about partial or complete dentures, contact Jasper Place Denture Clinic at 780-481-5900 today and ask us about our special benefits for seniors.
