There’s no better time to think about your oral health care than when you suffer an oral accident or injury. Even if your mouth is well taken care of and recovery has been successfully undergone, if you have suffered any missing or lost teeth, it is essential to have them replaced as soon as possible. Missing teeth can increase the rate at which tooth decay can occur in your mouth by adding more areas for plaque build-up to arise. In addition, gum destabilization and tooth slippage can also occur.

Exercise caution on any issues involving missing teeth. Missing teeth must always be replaced with effective tooth replacement prosthetics including dentures. Even if you’re only missing a few teeth, or if you need an entire row of teeth replaced, dentures can be used. If left untreated, tooth slippage and tooth decay can arise.

When handling your dentures, always exercise caution. They are extremely fragile and can easily break. In addition, when removing them always make sure you soak them in a denture cleaning solution because if you leave them sitting out, they will dry out and crack. Never try to fix your dentures yourself if they should become damaged. Instead, bring them in for a restoration from your dentist.

As your dentures are removable tooth prosthetics, it is important to clean them on a daily basis. To do so, always soak them in a denture cleaning solution. Make sure you are using safe and effective products that will not be overly abrasive. Teeth whiteners, bleach, and hot water are too dangerous for your dentures and should never be used.
