Even if you have only lost a single tooth, it is important to make sure that all teeth are accounted for in your smile. Any missing tooth can gradually destroy your smile through an increasing prevalence of tooth decay, gum disease destabilization, and tooth slippage. To prevent these oral ailments, consider tooth replacement treatments such as dentures.

A highly effective tooth restoration to consider for enhancing your smile is dentures. Dentures are designed to replace missing or lost teeth with suitable tooth prosthetics that can function as your natural teeth do. Dentistry has come long ways and can craft realistic-looking dentures that can replace as little as a single tooth or entire rows of teeth.

If you need a denture replacement, it is important to make sure that you care for them on a daily basis. Because dentures are meant to be removed, it is essential to store them in a denture cleaning solution. Never let them sit out on the counter as they can dry out and crack. In addition, always handle them with care.

Dentures are extremely fragile, and thus, they must be treated with care. If for any reason your dentures are damaged, never try to repair them yourself. Instead, bring them in to see your dentist for the proper repairs and restorations. In addition, always make sure to use the appropriate substances on them and avoid using bleach, hot water, teeth whiteners or any other potentially abrasive cleaning products that can severely damage them.

There truly is no better way to enhance your smile than with dentures.
