Contrary to popular belief, losing your teeth is not a natural part of aging. Disease and trauma are the main causes of tooth loss, and while trauma may be beyond your control, you can prevent disease of the teeth and gums with proper cleaning habits that will help your natural teeth last a lifetime.
But sometimes, things don’t go as planned… if you do find yourself with dentures, good oral hygiene is still very important.
Plaque builds up on dentures just like natural teeth and can damage surrounding gum tissue and cause bad breath. Brush your dentures and your gums as often as you would your natural teeth and absolutely keep your regular professional cleaning appointments.
