Denture Care Levittown PA

A toothbrush in front of denturesAdvice and tips on caring for your dentures

  • Only your dental professional is qualified to diagnose your oral health and adjust your denture or partial.

  • Dentures should be brushed inside and outside daily with a soft, large nylon denture toothbrush with round-ended bristles.

  • Use denture creams instead of toothpaste, which are too abrasive and will scratch your denture. Rinse with cold water.

  • Dentures warp if placed in hot water.

  • Inspect your denture regularly for worn teeth.

  • Worn and stained dentures can make you look older and cause your dentures to function poorly.

  • Discuss all your current medications with your doctor and dental professional.

  • Be sure to visit your dental professional regularly.

  • Have loose dentures checked immediately as they can cause friction and pressure on the gum tissues and bones.

  • When not in use, cover dentures with water or a denture-cleaning solution to prevent them from drying out.

  • Most dental insurance policies provide coverage for new dentures every 5 years.

All denture wearers should have periodic exams and maintenance of their mouth and denture. After 2-3 years of using the denture, there will be enough changes in the gums and bone to necessitate a denture reline or rebase. Once in a while, you may also need a denture repair. We offer all denture repairs, denture relines and denture rebase at Pearl Dental Arts.
