All about Bacteria and your Denture

Do your dentures smell bad or taste bad?

How well you take care of your oral health could determine how long your denture will last and how confident you feel when you smile. It is crucial to establish a straightforward maintenance schedule that includes both yearly checkups with your Denturist and professional denture cleanings. Dentures, like real teeth, develop plaque, stains, and the potential to harbor bacteria between the gum line and the porous acrylic denture material (complete or partial dentures). This may exacerbate existing cavities on natural teeth, sores from dentures, and other oral health problems.

What is plaque? How could it damage your denture?

Both natural teeth and dentures are impacted by plaque. Plaque is a thin, colourless, or white coating that forms on the surface of dentures or the natural teeth's gum-to-tooth contact points. Bacteria in plaque produce acids after you eat or drink.

In what ways does plaque harm your health?

Plaque is a sticky by-product of many bacteria, saliva, and food particles. Our Denturists advise rinsing dentures every time you eat. Combining soaking with brushing is the most effective way to accomplish this. Lack of a regular cleaning practice can have detrimental effects on your dental health, including gum and other oral tissue irritation.

Why does my denture have a foul odour?

If your dentures smell bad, it's probably because of the foul gases that plaque-coated bacteria in your mouth generate when they break down food particles. Additionally, certain medications could aggravate the situation.

Remember to brush and soak your denture after every meal to prevent plaque, bacteria, and odours. It's crucial to visit our Daien Denture Clinic frequently so that we can clean and polish your dentures for you. This will lessen the likelihood of bacteria and plaque adhering.
