A denture is a removable prosthesis or appliance (complete or partial) made to replace natural teeth.
Dentures are naturally retained in the mouth due to a combination of factors. Learning to eat with artificial teeth requires considerable skill and practice. This is because every person’s mouth has a different structure, which can affect the retention and stability of the denture. Also, the level of suction which helps hold the denture in place, particularly the upper denture, will vary according to the amount of saliva produced. Many denture wearers find the lower denture particularly difficult to manage at first.
However well-fitting the dentist has made the dentures, they can never provide the biting and chewing efficiency of natural teeth. It is a good idea to develop a regular routine for cleaning dentures.
Brushing is the most essential aspect of cleaning a denture. Soaking a denture in a cleansing solution alone is not enough.
