It is important to make sure that missing teeth do not go untreated, and a successful and safe prosthetic is implemented is place, otherwise future oral health ailments such as tooth decay and tooth slippage can arise.

When deciding on which form of replacement treatment is best for you, it is important to remember that dentures are removable. If you do decide to opt-in for dentures, it is important to remember to care for them on a daily basis. They should be removed every night to allow for easy soaking in a denture-cleaning solution. This helps not only to protect your dentures but to keep your mouth safe as well. Always make sure to use appropriate denture cleaning solutions and avoid products such as teeth whiteners, hot water, bleach, or other abrasive materials. Before inserting your dentures back into your mouth, always make sure to clean out your mouth rinse off your dentures to remove any chemicals that may linger behind.

Failure to soak your dentures in a cleaning solution at night can cause them to dry out and crack, especially if you set them on the shelf and forget about them overnight. Furthermore, dentures are often extremely fragile, so they must be handled with care. If you should ever damage your dentures, visit your dentist.
