It is highly advisable that if you have any lost or missing case to have them replaced as soon as possible. If missing teeth are left untreated, you can increase your risk for tooth decay, plaque buildup, and can cause your jawbone to deteriorate even further, which can lead to gum destabilization and tooth slippage. A highly effective replacement treatment to consider is dentures.

Speak with your dentist to determine if dentures are right for you. Thanks to advances in modern dentistry, dentures can be crafted to the exact design needed to fit safely and comfortably in your mouth. Furthermore, dentures can be crafted for use as a single tooth or to complete an entire set of teeth.

Dentures are removable, but it is important to care for them on a daily basis. When removing your dentures, please remember that they are fragile and can easily be damaged. Also, make sure to never let them sitting out as they will dry out and crack. Dentures need to be soaked in a cleaning solution when not in your mouth. Ideally, you should clean and soak your dentures on a daily basis to ensure they are always free of food debris and plaque buildup. However, avoid abrasive cleaning products such as bleach, hot water, teeth whiteners, or other abrasive cleaning products that can potentially damage them.
