Your New Implant-Supported Dentures – Care, Maintenance, and Expectations

dca-blog_your-new-implant-supported-dentures-care-maint-expect

Just like natural teeth that must be brushed regularly to stay healthy, your implant-supported dentures must be cleaned carefully every day. Because your denture plate is attached to implants placed in your jawbone, you must remove all detachable appliances and clean around attachments, artificial teeth, and gum areas. It is unwise to sleep with dentures in your mouth, whether they are supported by implants or not; remove them at night to prevent infections and other complications.

Professional Maintenance and Care
To keep your dentures and implants in the best possible condition, don’t skip your dental appointments. Regular office visits will include a thorough examination to ensure that your gums and mouth tissues are healthy, and your dentures are fitting comfortably. Occasional x-rays allow your dentist to see that your implants, abutments, and attachments are positioned correctly. Clips and other attachments wear out easily and are usually replaced annually or bi-annually.

What You Can Expect from Your Implant-Supported Dentures
With proper care, your implant-supported dentures should provide many years of reliable performance. They’re more stable than regular dentures, so you won’t have to worry about speech problems, and you may be able to eat many of your favorite foods again. Extremely hard or sticky foods can damage your dentures, so choose your diet carefully. See your dentist in Peoria regularly, and schedule a visit any time you have a problem with mouth or gum irritation. Denture-related sore spots and bite problems can easily be corrected, so don’t suffer needlessly. Your implant-supported dentures should be comfortable, attractive, and functional. They should give you every reason to show the world your beautiful new smile.
