Dr. Sumitra Yalamanchili and Dr. Shalini Sethi can secure dentures with dental implants at Elevate Dental Implant Center. Implant-supported dentures are more beneficial than traditional removable dentures because they support the structure of the teeth and gums. This restoration also helps patients easily bite, speak, and chew. Following your denture treatment, remember to clean your restoration every day just like your natural teeth. With the proper oral hygiene care, your implant-secured dentures should last you for many years.
Cleaning Implant-Supported Dentures
Clean your implant-supported dentures at least twice a day and even after meals. It is especially important to clean your abutments, the part of your denture that attaches your denture to your jawbone. We recommend using a proxabrush, a special brush that can reach gaps between the roots of the denture. This precise brush is crafted to fit through small spaces from different angles.
When brushing your abutments, use short horizontal movements. Floss carefully back and forth where the denture touches the gum tissue. Rinse your mouth with water after brushing and flossing your dentures. Maintaining a good oral hygiene routine will help your implant-supported denture last longer.
Maintaining Your Dentures
Remember to schedule regular dental appointments at the Elevate Dental Implant Center. We will examine your restoration during regular visits to ensure that you are free of tooth decay, gum disease, and other dental issues. Our dentists will also ensure that your dentures fit comfortably and are not misaligned in the mouth. Occasionally, we take x-rays to make sure that your implants and abutments are in the right position. If we see that your denture attachments show any signs of wear, we can replace them.
