Are you interested in replacing your missing teeth with dentures? If so, our dentist, Dr. John Lee, encourages you to learn all about the appliance so you can know if it’s the right treatment for you. Dentures are great appliances that replace your missing teeth, improve your oral health, and enhance your smile. To tell you more about dentures, our dentist is happy to share some facts. Those facts are:

-There are two different types of dentures: complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures replace the entire arch of teeth while partial dentures replace one or more missing teeth in a row.

-Complete dentures suction to the roof of the mouth and partial dentures clasp to the natural teeth on both sides of the gap in the smile.

-You can use denture adhesive to make the denture sit more firmly in place. This can keep it from slipping and sliding.

-You need to clean your dentures regularly by rinsing them after you eat, brushing them with a soft-bristled toothbrush and non-abrasive toothpaste, and soaking them in denture cleaner at night.

-Your dentures might feel awkward at first, but that is normal and to be expected. You will get used to the appliance with time.
