Implant Overdentures are a newer alternative to regular dentures that combine the conventional denture technology with new improvements. Implant Overdentures are generally used when a person does not have any tooth in the jaw. They are comfortable and just easy to care for as standard dentures.
Dentures are made from material that is softer than natural teeth, so eventually they will need to be replaced.
To get the most out of your dentures, it is recommended that you visit a dental professional every six to twelve months. At Direct Denture Care we recommend that patients with full dentures visit us once a year and that those with partial dentures visit at least once every six months.
Just like natural teeth, dentures need to be cleaned morning and night to remove food particles and plaque.
If you do not clean your dentures daily, plaque will build up along the gum-line and where your dentures meet any remaining teeth.
Taking your dentures out at night enables your mouth and gums to recover from the effort of supporting your dentures during the day. However, the choice to take them out or not is completely up to you.
If you choose to keep them in at night you’ll have to make sure that you clean them thoroughly before you go to bed.
At first, your food may taste a little different as your mouth adjusts to the dentures. However, foods will soon start to taste normal again.
