What Are Dentures? 

Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth and their surrounding tissues made of composite resin, porcelain, and acrylic. They are custom-made out of your teeth’ impressions to ensure a perfect fit in your mouth. 

There are two types of dentures; partial and full dentures. Partial dentures have artificial replacement teeth attached to a pink-colored base connected by a metal framework. 

On the other hand, full dentures can be either conventional or immediate. Conventional dentures are attached about eight to 12 weeks after tooth extraction, while immediate dentures are positioned right after tooth extraction

How to Maintain Dentures to Make Them Last Longer 

Your dentures should be cleaned and maintained by soaking them overnight in a denture cleaning solution. Before using your dentures, make sure to brush them using a soft-bristled toothbrush and a cleaner recommended by your dentist. 

Avoid using toothpaste and bleach when cleaning your dentures, as these mixtures are too abrasive, which can cause damages. Also, don’t use hot water when rinsing your dentures. 

Store your dentures in lukewarm water or your cleaning solution to maintain their moisture when not in use. Toothpicks shouldn’t be used to get rid of food particles stuck in your dentures. 

When you are following these cleaning procedures, your dentures can last for many years, saving you the costs of having them repaired.
