Tooth Brush in Front of DenturesAdvice and tips on caring for your dentures

  • Only your dental professional is qualified to diagnose your salud oral and adjust your prótesis dental o partial.
  • Prótesis dentales should be brushed inside and outside daily with a soft, large nylon denture tooth brush with round-ended bristles.
  • Use denture creams instead of toothpastes, which are too abrasive and will scratch your denture. Rinse with cold water.
  • Prótesis dentales warp if placed in hot water.
  • Inspect your prótesis dental regularly for worn teeth.
  • Worn and stained prótesis dentales can make you look older and cause your prótesis dentales to function poorly.
  • Discuss all your current medications with your doctor and dental professional.
  • Be sure to visit your dental professional regularly.
  • Have loose prótesis dentales checked immediately as they can cause friction and pressure on the gum tissues and bones.
  • When not in use, cover prótesis dentales with water or a denture-cleaning solution to prevent them from drying out.
  • Most dental insurance policies provide coverage for new prótesis dentales every 5 años.
