Correct your smile by filling in missing teeth with dentures. If you need a few teeth replaced, our dentist at Blissful Dental can craft a set of partial dentures for you. If you need an entire set of new teeth, we can craft a complete set of dentures for you as well. No matter how big or small your tooth loss number is, there is a high likelihood that simple tasks such as speaking and eating can become much more labored or even painful. Dentures can restore what you have lost and bring back your eating and speaking abilities to much more manageable levels.

If you already have a set of dentures, it is imperative to give them the same care and attention as you would your normal teeth. Although the habits may change, your dentures can fail if you do not take care of them.

Here are some common guidelines to help you care for your dentures:

– Clean your dentures daily, but avoid using toothpaste, as it is too abrasive and can damage them. Always use dentist-approved denture cleaner or mild hand soaps.
– Dentures can crack and break if they dry out, so always soak them in a dentist-approved cleaning solution when not in use. Plain water can also be used as a substitute.
– Keep your mouth clean at all times, even when not wearing your dentures. Do not insert dirty dentures back into your mouth, and be sure to wash away any chemicals from your dentures if they were soaked in a cleaning solution.

Don’t let an oral accident or missing teeth keep you from a great smile. Book an appointment with Dr. Brenda E. Howard by calling us at 301.552.2662. Our office is located in Lanham, Maryland. We look forward to bringing back the great smile you desire.
