Unveiling the Vital Connection: Oral Health and Dentures



As you know, getting dentures marks a new chapter in your oral health journey, and contrary to popular belief, the importance of maintaining excellent oral hygiene doesn't diminish with the loss of natural teeth. In fact, it becomes more crucial than ever to ensure your dentures are well-cared for and that your overall oral health remains a top priority. In this blog, we'll explain the significance of oral health with dentures and explore key practices to keep your smile radiant and confident.


Here is what you can do to ensure optimal oral health


·         Daily Denture Care: A Foundation for Success

Proper denture maintenance is the cornerstone of oral health for denture wearers. Just like natural teeth, dentures can harbour plaque, tartar, and bacteria. Neglecting their regular cleaning can lead to discomfort, irritation, and even infections. It is important to establish a routine that involves both brushing and soaking your dentures with a specialized denture cleaner (we recommend Renew). Be sure to stay away from abrasive toothpaste (they can scratch the pink acrylic on the denture) and use a soft bristle toothbrush that is made for dentures.

·         Comprehensive Oral Care for Lasting Well-Being

Beyond denture maintenance, it's essential to care for any remaining natural teeth. Brush and floss them twice daily and see your Dentist regularly. Make sure you include gum care into your daily routine by gently brushing them with a soft-bristle toothbrush. This strengthens your gums, enhances blood circulation and removes bacteria. As a denture wearer, gum care is important because they are the foundation for your denture!


·         Routine Professional Checkups: Safeguarding Your Smile

Regular visits to your Denturist and Dentist are integral components of maintaining optimal oral health with dentures. These checkups ensure the proper fit of your dentures, evaluate the health of your gums and oral tissues, and address any concerns related to your remaining teeth. Being proactive helps identify and address issues early, preserving the longevity of your dental health. At Beausejour Denture Clinic, we provide complimentary annual checkups and professional denture cleanings to ensure your smile stays vibrant.


·         Nighttime Care: Giving Your Gums a Break

While personal preferences may vary, our Denturists recommend removing dentures at night. This practice not only allows your gums a well-deserved rest but also stimulates saliva production—crucial for your oral health. Additionally, it helps prevent accelerated bone loss caused by the pressure of dentures on your gums, safeguarding the foundation of your smile.



In summary, the journey to excellent oral health with dentures involves a thorough approach encompassing daily care, comprehensive oral hygiene practices, routine professional checkups, and mindful nighttime care. By prioritizing these aspects, you not only maintain the longevity of your dentures but also ensure that your smile continues to radiate confidence and well-being.
