Dentures are in constant use almost 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. They are also in a pretty hostile environment in the mouth, being attacked by strong acid, bacteria, hot, cold and spicy food. Denture material absorbs liquids and food odour.
Daily cleansing is essential as well as professional ultrasonic cleaning in a dental laboratory at least once a year.
Due to constant bone resorption dentures will become loose sooner or later.
Loose dentures can cause damage to the gums and bone structure and increase the risk of breakage of your dentures. It is important to have them relined as soon as possible to ensure a perfect fit. It only takes a day or so.
It is important to have your dentures inspected by a Clinical Dental Technician every year or more frequently if necessary.
