Some of the most common ways cracks and fractures can occur to your denture is by dropping them in the sink during cleaning or even being used as a chew toy by the family dog.
We can only recommend you try to avoid dropping your dentures and come to Smiles & More for a professional cleaning 3-4 times per year.
The strength of your denture can deteriorate over time by harsh cleaning with abrasive toothpaste and brushes. The products used on the dentures lead to them losing their strength. Also, if they’re put under hot temperature water, they can warp, causing them to no longer fit you perfectly.
Whether you’re a smoker, avid tea/coffee drinker or a lover of colourful, spicy foods. All of these can lead to your dentures being stained.
Our analogy when it comes to what food to eat, think of, ‘Would this stain my white clothing?’. If the answer is yes, it might be a good idea to opt for a milder dish on occasion. To avoid staining, we’d recommend smokers try and quit, tea/coffee drinkers try an alternative drink such as green tea or simply lower their consumption levels of regular tea/coffee.
