You Are Not Alone!
When it comes to wearing dentures, you will not be alone! Data indicates that 90% of Americans with tooth loss, wear dentures. Additionally, there are approximately 178 million adults who are missing at least one tooth due to gum disease or decay. While many individuals who wear dentures choose to do so to preserve continuity and balance in their smile, others wear them to maintain nutritional harmony and to preserve a neat and attractive appearance. Almost 15 percent of people who wear dentures have new ones created each year.
Dentures are Easy to Maintain
When your day ends, it is important to keep your dentures clean. Today, you can do so with ease. Consider using a soft tooth brush to brush your dentures, ensuring that bacteria and debris are kept at bay. Refresh your mouth with mouthwash and then store your dentures in a container. You may also want to consider rinsing out that container periodically, so that it remains as fresh as your dentures. All of these steps take minimal time and will keep that confidence flowing when your dentures are ready for another day.
Once a year, you should consider getting a gum check-up. Dr. Carroll can provide you with an annual gum check-up, ensuring your gums are free of disease and infection. He also offers gum grafting for recession. Even without natural teeth, your oral cavity needs TLC. Your annual gum check-up will also be great for checking proper fit and comfort of your dentures. So, go ahead and connect with us, and proudly request an appointment for a gum check-up; you’re worth it!
