This holiday season, complete your smile with excellent dental restoration options. If your smile is lacking a full set of teeth, there are a few options available to you. Dental implants, dental bridges, and denture are all great ways to fill out your smile once more.

If you are considering getting a pair of dentures, first consider whether you need a full set or a partial set. Artistry in Dentistry can ensure the highest possible care will be given to ensure whichever treatment option an individual chooses will be of the maximum effectiveness for each patient.

If you have or want dentures, here are a few tricks and tips to keeping them clean:

– Never let your dentures air-dry or remain in the air for too long. When the dentures are removed for periods of time, soak them in regular water or an approved cleaning solution. There are a few products you should avoid using on the dentures, as they can easily damage the pair. These include teeth whitening products, bleach, abrasive materials, hot water, or glue.
– Make sure to treat your dentures with extreme care. They are not indestructible, and can easily be damaged if dropped. If your dentures become damaged, alert your dentists at Artistry in Dentistry and we will assist you. Never try to fix broken dentures yourself.
– Because they are removable there is an even greater risk of harmful bacteria. Make sure to brush and rinse your dentures on a daily basis but not with toothpaste. Toothpaste is too abrasive, so use an ADA-approved denture cleaner or mild hand soap.

A good set of dentures can be the difference between a happy holiday season or a horrific one. Don’t let your teeth let you down. If you would like to meet with Drs.
