If you want to enjoy the bright smile and benefits of your dentures for as long as possible, knowing the right way to clean and preserve them is absolutely vital. To ensure that the new smile of our patients serves them well, our professionals at Dallas Oral Surgery Associates offer the following tips for taking care of implant-supported dentures.

Understanding What Implant Supported Dentures Are

For effective use and care, it is always best to be intimate with the knowledge of your device. Implant-supported dentures are a combination of dentures and dental implants. The dental implants serve as the base support for the dentures. They are small titanium posts that are surgically placed inside the jawbone. Once the jawbone fuses to the posts and heals around it, the implants are ready to receive the dentures. The dentures are designed to custom fit to your mouth. They have support rings under them that key them into place. These rings are aligned with the implants to form a secure hold.

Why Is It Important To Clean Them?

The process of receiving these implant-supported dentures does take a bit of time. It spans over months of dental appointments, surgical procedures, and healing. You want to ensure that your dentures last a lifetime. The fact that they can be removed does not mean that they can be neglected in being cleaned. You will need to clean them to ensure good oral hygiene for yourself. Since you will use them to consume regular meals and drinks, you want to ensure that remnants of these do not linger on your dentures. Also, bacteria can also be harbored around the dentures and the implant posts, and can raise the risk of infection over time.

How to Clean Your Implant-Supported Dentures

Daily cleaning in the morning and night is important. Using cleaning products that our professionals recommend, you should clean all the components of your dentures. Also, clean the abutment pillars of the implants carefully. You should pay attention to the inner sides and the surrounding gums, cleaning them with a horizontal motion. With the dentures, make sure to get rid of any lingering food particles around and underneath it. Generally, a healthy oral hygiene practice will keep them safe.

Professional Maintenance is Vital

Your implant-supported dentures should get professional maintenance frequently. Keeping appointments with our professionals will help keep your dentures in top shape. Our professionals will clean your gums and also examine their health. We will take out the dentures and clean them too. This maintenance also allows us to check the fit of your denture.
