Your new partial denture plays an important role in restoring the essential function of your mouth. These oral appliances created at Mark’s Denture Lab are designed to match the natural contours of your existing gum structure. Some partial dentures also include special hardware components to help connect them comfortably with the surrounding teeth.
Maintaining good oral hygiene habits is very important for maintaining the health of your natural teeth as well as preserving the comfortable fit of the partial denture.
You should not sleep with the partial denture in your mouth. Each evening you should remove the unit and gently brush all surfaces of the denture with a soft-bristled toothbrush and a small amount of non-abrasive toothpaste. Once this is done you should soak it in a denture solution and store it in a safe location.
You should then brush and floss your natural teeth as part of your usual daily routine. Make sure to floss the gumline of each tooth neighboring the partial denture to remove bacterial deposits and prevent gum inflammation. This will help your partial denture to fit comfortably in place, while also helping to maintain your natural teeth.
