When do you need to replace your dentures?
As you age your mouth changes shape and you begin to see lines and creases around your mouth. Thus, to ensure that your dentures offer good support for your cheeks and lips, and continue to fit well, you will probably need to replace your dentures every 8 to 10 years.
Care and cleaning
The upkeep and maintenance of dentures is simple. But it’s important to clean them every single day. Soft tooth brushes should be used, and warm water, not hot, to prevent warping. Economical electrosonic denture baths and specialty cleaning products are also helpful.
Conventional dentures are removable, however there are many different denture designs, some which rely on bonding or clasping onto teeth or dental implants. Dentures should be cared for over a partially filled sink or soft towel; this minimizes damage in the event they are accidentally dropped.
