It’s never too early to think about tooth replacement treatments to enhance your smile. Whether you need a partial denture to replace as little as one tooth, or complete dentures to replace entire rows of teeth, temporary tooth prosthetics in the form of dentures can prove to be highly effective for improving your overall health. If you have any missing or lost teeth that are not replaced, several oral health ailments can arise.
If you have any missing teeth, it is important to replace them as soon as possible. If left untreated, serious forms of dental decay can occur. Not only can your feet look aged due to a sunken in dental profile, but your jawbone can weaken and deteriorate. Furthermore, plaque buildup and bacteria can begin to manifest in the voids left behind. To help reverse these ailments, fill out your smile with a tooth replacement treatment such as dentures.
Dentures are highly effective tooth replacements because they can complete your smile in situations where as little as one tooth is needed or to replace entire rows of teeth. However, dentures are fragile, so you need to exercise caution when handling them. Since they are removable, they will need to be cleaned on a daily basis in a denture cleaning solution. It is important to always have them in a solution as leaving them out to dry can easily chip and crack them. Furthermore, avoid using abrasive products on them such as bleach, hot water, or teeth whiteners. For additional help with your denture care, always visit your dentist for any repairs that may be needed.
