More about Dentures

Dentures replace missing teeth, help with chewing, support facial structure, and improve speech. Dentures are a cost-effective and custom-made durable solution. At our offices in Lawrenceville, Buford, and Dacula, GA, our dentists ensure that dentures offer the right shape, color, and size for a natural look.

Caring for Dentures:

Taking care of your dentures is as vital as caring for your teeth, as it can prevent future decay and other dental issues from affecting your gums and remaining teeth. Make sure that you rinse your dentures daily, brush them with a soft-bristled toothbrush in order to remove food particles, and to use a non-abrasive cleanser to avoid scratching any of the surfaces. Additionally, you should always fully immerse your dentures in water when you are not wearing them in order to prevent warping.

If you use adhesive, regardless of whether it comes as a cream, powder, pad, wafer, strip, or liquid, read and follow instructions down to a T. Look for ADA-approved products to ensure that you are using a safe and effective product.

Finally, caring for dentures also involves a proper oral regimen. Brush your mouth thoroughly (that includes the gums, cheeks, and roof of your mouth) to reduce the risk of oral irritation and bad breath.
