When you think of dentures, you probably think of the older generation—but in reality, they could be a viable option for anyone who is missing teeth. However, please remember that dentures will require more upkeep than a few of your other options for replacing missing teeth.
If you’re missing teeth, several tasks that once were simple could become difficult and uncomfortable. For example, you may have noticed that some letters can be harder to pronounce and that chewing can actually be uncomfortable or even painful. Dentures can restore the function and appearance of your smile, giving you your life back. Dentures are also a more cost-effective option than some other restorations.
You’ll need to care for your dentures well if you’re interested in preserving them. One of the most important things you can do is brush your dentures every day, like you would your natural teeth. You see, dentures can stain easily if you don’t care for them well. You can also consider denture cleaners to avoid this problem. You’ll also need to keep your dentures submerged in water or a dental solution or they’ll dry out and lose their shape.
