Dentures are removable tooth prosthetics designed to look and function like natural teeth. Most dentures are composed of replacement teeth attached to plastic bases that take on the appearance of the gums. They are meant to replace a full set of teeth on the upper and/or lower arch. Traditional dentures are a more affordable and budget friendly option. You may choose to secure your denture with dental implants. This is a smart choice to provide a more secure fit than traditional dentures.
Your dentures are custom designed to fit your smile, but did you know that improperly caring for them can cause them to become distorted? Most removable dentures must maintain moisture to retain their shape. Be sure to wash them after eating, gently clean them once daily, and allow them to soak overnight in a denture soaking solution. This will keep your dentures clean and free of stains, which ultimately helps your smile look its best. Contact RT Dental in Durham today to schedule an appointment.
