Dentures work to fill the face out, similarly to natural teeth, eliminating a changing appearance due to missing teeth. The confidence that comes with this renewed appearance is priceless.

How can I care for my dentures?
Since dentures sit on the gums, wearers are at risk for bone atrophy. It is very important that the dentures fit correctly and are monitored for any changes in the fit. Regular dental checkups are absolutely vital to maintaining good oral health while wearing dentures. The dentures must also remain moist when not in use, meaning the wearer must soak them in a denture solution or plain water when dentures come out for the night. It is also important to brush the dentures twice a day with a denture brush to clean off any leftover food particles, bacteria or plaque that could be present.
