How to Maintain a Strong Oral Health While You Have Dentures
Itâ€™s important to keep up with oral hygiene when you have dentures so you can maintain the top-notch oral health you deserve, even when you have full dentures. Today, Dr. [doctor_name] and our dental team would like to talk about how to clean your smile when you have dentures so you can keep your teeth and gums in tip-top shape.
The first thing you need to do is clean your mouth. You should do this by brushing your gums, tongue, and palate with a soft-bristled toothbrush every night when you take the dentures out of your mouth. If you have partial dentures, you need to brush your remaining teeth as well as floss them. You should also thoroughly remove the plaque that gets trapped by the denture clasps to prevent tooth decay.
The last thing you need to do is rinse your mouth with lukewarm salt water to clean the gums. This will help wash away harmful bacteria that threaten your gums and bones. Itâ€™s also important to massage your gums regularly to keep them stimulated. Lastly, itâ€™s best to have a balanced diet so you can maintain a healthy mouth.
