Life with Dental Dentures – 7 Essential Care Tips

dca-blog-525-Dentures_1200x630

For many seniors, affordable quality dentures restore confidence and make life more enjoyable. However, dental dentures require proper care to maintain their comfort and functionality. Dentures that don’t allow seniors to eat certain foods like meats may result in nutritional deficiencies and unhealthy weight loss. If you’re a caregiver for a senior with dentures, you’re in charge of keeping them healthy. Taking good care of their dentures is one way to do it. The denture care tips for seniors listed below can keep you on the right track.

7 Important Denture Care Tips for Seniors:

  1. Remove and rinse dentures after meals.
  2. Clean dentures every day with a soft-bristled denture brush.
  3. Do not use regular toothpaste or bleach on dentures.
  4. Hot water can warp affordable quality dentures; use only cold or lukewarm water when cleaning.
  5. Ultrasonic cleaners can be effective, but they don’t replace daily brushing.
  6. Place a towel in the sink to avoid damaging dentures or partials if you drop them.
  7. When dentures are not worn, they should be stored in a container with water to keep them moist.

The Best Way to Solve Problems with Dental Dentures
Affordable quality dentures can improve the overall health of many seniors, but they’re not always trouble-free. If a denture breaks or suddenly becomes painful, don’t try to fix or adjust it yourself. Do-it-yourself repairs often cause irreparable damage. When a senior in your care complains of ill-fitting dentures, denture pain, or chewing problems, take them to a dentist promptly for professional care. With clean and properly fitted dentures, a senior’s golden years can be much healthier and more enjoyable.
