Everybody has questions about dentures …
Newmarket Denture Clinic & Implant Solutions is dedicated to educating our patients and their loved ones about proper denture care. Below are some tips and signs to watch for when it comes to you and/or your loved one’s oral hygiene:
Should I use Denture Adhesives?
The use of Poligrip® or other forms of denture adhesives to keep dentures secure and prevent them from falling out could mean:
- That the denture is loose and no longer fits right in the mouth
- Since the denture is no longer secure in the mouth, this may make it harder to speak or eat
Should I remove my dentures at night?
Remember to always take your denture(s) out every night. If you or your loved one has not been doing so, you may begin to notice:
- Redness in your gums (because your gums don’t have a chance to breathe, you may begin to see the outline of the denture on your gums)
- Poor oral hygiene (bad breath, etc.)
- Excessive tissue growth along your gums
Is it normal for my denture to move?
When speaking/smiling, do you notice that your denture moves around a lot? This could be an indicator that the denture no longer fits correctly and is too loose. This may be caused due to weight gain/loss and/or weakened bone structure in your mouth.
