A Quick Guide to Caring for Your Implant-Supported Dentures

dca-blog_325-dentures-false-teeth

Like natural teeth, your new implant-supported dentures need regular care and attention. Because they attach to implants that are surgically placed in your jawbone, you must remove them nightly before bed and daily to clean both the removable denture and the gum area thoroughly. Clean around your attachment hardware carefully before reinserting your denture. As with traditional dentures, you should never sleep with implant-supported dentures in your mouth. Affordable quality dentures can quickly create major medical expenses if choking, gum problems, or infection occurs.

Professional Maintenance and Care

Your dentist plays an important part in keeping your denture in top shape. Regular office visits will include a thorough examination to ensure that your gums and mouth tissues are healthy, and your denture is fitting comfortably. Occasional x-rays allow your dentist to see that your implants, abutments, and attachments are positioned correctly. Clips and other attachments wear out easily and are usually replaced annually or bi-annually.

What to Expect from Your New Implant-Supported Dentures

With proper care, your implant-supported dentures should provide many years of reliable performance. They’re more stable than regular dentures, so you won’t have to worry about speech problems, and you may be able to eat many of your favorite foods again. Extremely hard or sticky foods can damage your dentures, so choose your diet carefully. See your dentist regularly, and schedule a visit any time you have a problem with mouth or gum irritation. Denture-related sore spots and bite problems can easily be corrected, so don’t suffer needlessly. Your dentures should be comfortable, attractive, and functional. You should have every reason to show off your smile.
