Dentures and the Canadian You

Today, despite great advances in dentristry, there are still a large number of people, wearing full or partial dentures. In fact, today, more than five million Canadian adults are wearing dentures. That is more than one out of every four people in Canada. So wearing dentures is really quite common. When approached with a positive attitude, dentures can become as natural as putting on your shoes in the morning and taking them off at night!

The mouth is one of the most important areas of your body, but often neglected when dentures are or should be worn. Your dentures should be checked yearly to prevent serious health conditions such as oral cancer, digestive disorders, headaches, and hearing problems. As your gums are constantly shrinking, over-closing jaws can be the cause of many problems. Self help products, such as drug store liners are not only temporary solutions, but more importantly can be hazardous to your health and should not be used.

The supporting bone and tissue in your mouth needs regular rest from your dentures. You should take your dentures out every day for a brief time, preferably over night. Brush your gums and tongue with a soft toothbrush, to generate blood flow into the area and to remove residual food particles. You should rinse your mouth as well. Plain water, mouthwash, or salt water can be used. Salt water is not recommended for low sodium diets or for people who are avoiding salt for health reasons.
