How your dentist in Rancho Cucamonga, CA can help you take care of your dentures.

Dentures are an investment in your smile and yourself. Now that you have dentures, you want to keep them looking great and feeling comfortable, so it’s important to know how to take care of your dentures. Dr. John Stockdale at Renaissance Dental Care in Rancho Cucamonga, CA can help you get the most from your dentures.

There are a few simple, but important things to remember about taking care of your dentures. You need to:

Handle your dentures carefully, so you don’t drop them. Never try to bend the clasps or the plastic.

Remove your dentures and rinse them off after eating; this helps to get rid of food particles which can irritate your tissue.

Before you put the dentures back in, gently clean your mouth out with a soft toothbrush or piece of gauze.

Clean your dentures every day with a denture cleanser, removing food, debris, and denture adhesive.

Don’t sleep with your dentures in overnight; you need to soak the denture in water or denture solution to keep the denture moist and comfortable.

Rinse off any traces of soaking solution before you put the denture back in your mouth.

Visit Dr. Stockdale regularly so he can check the condition and the fit of your denture.

Remember to only use gentle cleaning solutions made for dentures. Never use harsh abrasives, products containing bleach, or sharp tools to clean your denture. Avoid using very hot or boiling water on your denture because it can change the shape of your denture and how it fits.

If you break your denture, you can try to use a temporary repair kit available at pharmacies or grocery stores to get you by until you can see your dentist. The best solution for a damaged or broken denture is to see Dr. Stockdale right away.

Your denture is important to your self-esteem and self-confidence. You want it to give you great benefits for years, so taking care of your denture is critical. To find out more about taking care of dentures, talk with an expert. Call Dr. John Stockdale of Renaissance Dental Care in Rancho Cucamonga, CA at (909) 987-0040.

Over the last few years, dental implants have become a regular part of most dental practices, and it's easy to see why. They attractively and permanently replace a missing natural tooth in its entirety, making life easier for both dentists and patients. At Renaissance Dental Care in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, Dr. John Stockdale regularly recommends dental implants for his patients. Here are a few reasons why:

You've lost a permanent tooth.

Most American adults are missing at least one permanent tooth by the time they're 30 years old. Although it's common, it's something that needs to be remedied by your Rancho Cucamonga dentist as soon as possible. It's important to replace any missing teeth with dental implants as soon as you can in order to prevent deterioration of the jawbone and shifting of the remaining natural teeth.

You need a tooth extracted.

If an accident has occurred or a previous dental restoration (such as a root canal) has failed, your Rancho Cucamonga dentist might need to extract, or pull, the affected tooth. Filling that empty space with a dental implant is highly recommended in order to keep the rest of your teeth healthy. In some cases, the post of an implant can be placed the same day as the tooth is extracted; X-rays will determine if you're a candidate.

You need dentures.

You heard right: if you need dentures, but don't want to deal with the hassle of removing them, implant-supported dentures could be in your future. Instead of relying on denture paste and suction, both the upper and lower denture plates can be attached to a series of implants - typically four on each - and held in firmly in place. Talk to Dr. Stockdale to find out if this type of denture solution is right for you.

To make an appointment with Dr. Stockdale regarding dental implants or any other dental procedure, contact Renaissance Dental Care in Rancho Cucamonga, CA by calling (909) 987-0040 today.
