Denture Care FAQ

When you have questions about your denture care, Selinsgrove Dental & Dentures will be there, every time. Our denture care center is located in Selinsgrove, PA, and we serve patients throughout Snyder County.

How should I take care of my dentures?

Daily brushing with a large toothbrush will take care of your remaining teeth and help keep your dentures in top-notch condition. Removing your dentures at night will give your gums a chance to breathe and reduce the chances of swelling and inflammation. The longer you wear your dentures during the day, the better. If you go a long period without wearing your dentures, they may no longer fit. When you notice signs of wear and tear, it’s essential to have your dentures adjusted and repaired immediately.

How often should I replace my dentures?

Every case is different, but many professional dentists recommend replacing dentures every five years. You may need to replace your dentures sooner than five years, depending on your gums and age.

Will dentures affect my ability to talk?

When you first begin wearing dentures, you may experience difficulty speaking. As your mouth and tongue grow accustomed to dentures, your normal speech will resume.

Do I need adhesives?

For added comfort and support, your dentist may recommend denture adhesives. However, it’s important to keep in mind that your dentures are customized to your unique smile, so you should be able to wear yours comfortably and confidently.

Can I clean my dentures in boiling water?

Do not clean your dentures in hot, boiling water. This can cause your dentures to warp. It’s best to clean your dentures with cold or lukewarm water.

How should I brush my dentures or partials?

Use a denture brush with soft bristles for gentle care. Make sure to use a non-abrasive denture cleaner every time. Many kinds of toothpaste can be abrasive on dentures and cause wear and tear.
