When You Should Remove a Partial Denture, How Do You Care for The Rest of Your Teeth?
Posted on 1/20/2020 by Salem Dental Arts
The partial denture that you will receive will act as a replacement for missing tooth/teeth. It will help keep your cavity in excellent health.
On top of that, it will also increase your ability to chew, restore support to your jaw, and even improve your appearance. Once we fit the denture, you should wait for at least ten days to pass before you begin to accept the denture as part of your body.
Unlike complete dentures, partial dentures are a bridge or removable denture which is made of replacement teeth that are attached to a gum-colored or pink base that's sometimes connected using a metal framework. The metal framework clasps the denture correctly in your mouth. Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain in the lower or upper jaw.
Caring For the Rest of Your Teeth
After removing your dentures, you should clean your mouth. When cleaning your mouth, you should ensure that you use a soft bristle brush on your teeth to swab your cheeks, pallet, or roof of your mouth and your tongue. If you rely on denture adhesive, then you should remove any of the remaining adhesive dentures from your gums.
Recommendations On top of that, if you have dentures, then we highly advise you to visit us regularly. We will examine your dentures and have them cleaned professionally. During the routine examinations, we will also establish whether your dentures fit correctly. If we notice that your denture does not fit correctly, then we will have it placed successfully.
It's essential to visit us as soon as possible if you notice that your denture has become loose. On many occasions, loose dentures tend to cause sores, irritation, and several infections.
