Healthy Mouth Tips

If you are considering removable partial dentures, you may want to know what they are and how they work. Removeable partial dentures often have replacement teeth on the top and these teeth are attached to a pink base to mimic the gums. Depending on what your needs are, Dr. Cho will customize the dentures for you.

Sometimes, you may need to have crowns placed on your natural teeth to help improve the way a partial denture fits in your mouth. You can choose partial dentures with precision attachments, but these generally cost more, but they do look more aesthetically pleasing.

When you come into our office for a consult, Dr. Cho will go over your options with you and discuss what will work best for you.

What to Expect with Your New Partial Dentures

When you first have, your dentures placed, they may feel awkward and it is important that you give them time to adjust and you to get used to them. Soon enough, you will not even know that you have them in your mouth.

You should always follow the instructions that Dr. Cho provides you with when it comes to caring for your dentures and also inserting and removing them. It will take some practice, but you should get the hang of it after a week or two.

Your dentures should always fit with ease and you should not have to force them into place or wiggle them around to make them feel comfortable. If you do force the dentures, you may break them or you may bend the clasps.

If you find that your denture places too much pressure in an area, that spot may become sore. You need to let Dr. Cho know right away if this happens because you may need to have your dentures fitted again. Remember, your dentures should fit comfortably in your mouth. Once adjustments have been made in our La Habra office, Dr. Cho will have you try the dentures on and check to see if they fit better.

Partial dentures can be removed whenever you need to and at night, but Dr. Cho may recommend that you wear them all the time in the beginning, as this will help you become accustomed to their feel.

How to Properly Care for Dentures

It is important that you care for your dentures or else they will not last and you will experience sore spots and trouble when it comes to speaking and eating. Take a look at the following tips for proper care:

• Never use toothpaste on your dentures
• Use an American Dental Association recommended denture cleaner
• Brush the dentures with water every day to help remove any food particles and prevent staining
• Place cushioning on the counter in front of you in case you drop the dentures
• Use a specialized brush to clean your dentures
• Do not sleep with your dentures in your mouth
• Place your dentures in a container to keep them safe when not in your mouth
• Never place denture cleaner in your mouth and gargle it around
• Always make sure your dentures are rinsed before you put them away
• Keep your dentures in a soaking solution overnight

Great personal care

Dr. Kenneth Cho is a dentist that we trust. My family and I have been going to his office for 20+ years. He was the first dentist for both of my children (now collage age), and they still go to him. He can take care of every need for oral health including braces. No need to go from place to place, and everyone in the office is friendly and helpful.
