A great smile can light up an entire room and make a lasting impression. But most of the times, people usually don’t smile out of sheer embarrassment thinking of how bad their teeth may appear. Thankfully there are dentists that can repair these smiles in several ways, one of them being creating partial or full dentures. A complete denture is needed when all of the natural teeth are decayed or missing while a partial one is required to fill in areas around natural teeth. Plus, dentures are a cost-effective way of achieving natural-looking results for replacing missing or unrestorable teeth thereby enhancing your appearance and providing support and increased function to your molars.  You might think that getting the dentures will solve your problem completely, but you must not forget that taking care of the dentures is equally important, else all the hard work and money spent will be a complete waste.

Dentures are made from delicate materials and may break if dropped carelessly. Hence it is advised to store them away from kids and pets. Regular visits to the dentist is also a must so that he/she can judge for correct fit, wear and comfort. Of course, there is also the insistence on maintaining good oral health habits.

One thing that has to be kept in mind at all times is that dentures are an investment and similar to your natural teeth, they too require regular care and attention to help maintain their appearance as well as function. The dentists at Complete Denture Care recommend having a review appointment with their prosthetist every 1-2 years to ensure the longevity of your denture. They also offer an emergency denture repair service which can be carried within the hour, all depending on the degree of difficulty and their workload.

Ideally, one or more follow-up appointments are needed soon after receiving dentures for any necessary adjustments. One should never attempt to adjust or repair dentures by themselves. Bending any part of the clasp or metal attachments is also not advisable. Attempting to do such a thing can weaken the metal structure. “Do-it-yourself” repair kits that are available over-the-counter can permanently damage dentures, and even glues may contain harmful chemicals. Generally, complete dentures should be used for 5 to 7 years before a replacement is necessary.
