    Traditional Dentures

    Traditional dentures are a removable prosthesis that restore function and aesthetics to your smile. Dentures are a common replacement for natural teeth and a good option to use before deciding on long-term dental implants.

How to Tell If Your Dentures Fit Properly

A denture prosthetic needs to fit correctly for you to enjoy its benefits. A properly-fitting complete upper (top teeth) denture should stay in the mouth with suction and not rely on denture adhesives.

A lower (bottom teeth) denture is more challenging since there’s more movement in the lower jaw. We can use dental implants to anchor or hold the denture to the jaw. A poorly fitting denture feels loose and can cause sores on the gums. Over time the gum tissues and the jaw bone shrink because of the loose-fitting dentures.

When the frequency and amount of dental adhesives being used increases, it may mean that you need a new denture or denture reline. Denture adhesives can also cause allergic reactions and health issues for some patients.

Denture Care and Maintenance

Once you’ve received your dentures, follow these steps to maintain their fit and appearance to get the most out of your restoration.

  • Remove and rinse your dentures with water after eating
  • Avoid bending or damaging the clasps on your dentures when cleaning them
  • Use a soft-bristled toothbrush to clean your natural teeth and gums
  • Remove and clean your dentures daily with a non-abrasive cleaner
  • Soak your dentures in water or a denture solution overnight to help them maintain their shape
  • Be sure to frequently visit our Boca Raton dental office for regular checkups and cleanings
