How You and Your Dentist Take Care of Your Implant-Supported Dentures

dca-blog_325-dentures-false-teeth

Keeping your implant-supported dentures clean will help ensure many years of great performance and excellent oral health. Your denture plate is attached to implants that were surgically placed inside your jawbone, so you must remove all detachable parts to clean them daily. Clean around all attachments and gum tissues as your dentist directs. Don’t sleep while wearing your implant-supported dentures; your gums need to recover at night.

What to Expect from Your New Implant-Supported Dentures

With proper care, your implant-supported dentures should provide many years of reliable performance. They’re more stable than regular dentures, so you won’t have to worry about speech problems, and you may be able to eat many of your favorite foods again. Extremely hard or sticky foods can damage your dentures, so choose your diet carefully.

Follow-Up Maintenance and Care

Your dentist plays an important part in keeping your implant-supported dentures in top shape. Regular office visits will include a thorough examination to ensure that your gums and mouth tissues are healthy, and your dentures are fitting comfortably. Occasional x-rays allow your dentist to see that your implants, abutments, and attachments are positioned correctly. Clips and other attachment accessories wear out quickly; your dentist will probably replace them once or twice a year.

See your dentist regularly, and schedule a visit any time you have a problem with mouth or gum irritation. Denture-related sores, irritation, and bite issues can be alleviated easily, so there’s no need to suffer. Your implant-supported dentures should be comfortable, attractive, and functional. You should have every reason to show off your smile.
