Give Thanks to our Care Givers!
This Thanksgiving we give thanks to our care givers, whether it be a family member or a close friend. If you find yourself caring for the health of another person who needs denture care there is a lot you can do to help. It may be a little awkward and embarrassing at first, but go slowly.
All dentures (removable or fixed) must be cleaned daily. Check dentures for cracks and stains. Fill the sink with water and scrub removable dentures thoroughly with a denture brush and soap. Rinse removable dentures in water after cleaning. Dentures should be soaked overnight. Be careful when cleaning around metal clasps and framework.
Have the individual guide you in removing and replacing dentures (with complete dentures, remember to insert uppers before lowers).
Thank you to all you wonderful care givers!!
