4 Tips to Prolong Your Dentures' Life: No Need for Denture Repairs

Approximately, 20 million American’s wear dentures. Of the people aged 65+, more than 50% wear dentures. Like any other dental appliance, dentures are made to be strong and durable. However, they are nowhere as strong as natural teeth. As a result, it is quite common that your denture may need a repair. However, you can easily prolong the life of your denture by following these 4 tips.

Tip 1. Soak Your Denture in Water Overnight

Denture material is such that it needs to stay moist to retain its perfect shape. Any dryness can affect the shape of your denture making it harder to fit. To avoid that, make sure you soak your denture in water when you are not using it or overnight.

Tip 2. Handle Your Denture With Care

Denture accidents are quite common. And the main reason for this is lack of proper handling of the denture. When you are taking your denture out of storage or putting in or taking out for cleaning, lay out a soft towel. If you denture falls on the towel by mistake it will still be safe.

Tip 3. Rinse Your Denture After Eating or Drinking

When you eat or drink some of the food particles can make way under your denture. Rinsing the denture after eating or drinking can keep your denture clean and ensure the fit stays perfect.

Tip 4. Brush Your Denture Everyday

Though your denture is made of false teeth, they still need cleaning. Use a soft-bristled brush to clean your denture every day. However, you should avoid using a whitening toothpaste or a tooth paste containing bleach.
