Dentures can fix your smile. If you have a few missing teeth, a set of partial dentures can be crafted to suit your needs. If you need an entire smile makeover, a complete set of dentures can replace entire rows of teeth. Each pair of dentures crafted at Crossroads Dental is designed to fit comfortably and effectively in each patient’s mouth to ensure a smooth fit for long lasting support and protection. Fill in the gaps in your smile with a set of dentures.

If you already have a set of dentures, it is imperative to give them the same care and attention as you would your normal teeth. Although the habits may change, your dentures can fail if you do not take care of them. Listed below are some common tips to caring for your dentures:

– Clean your dentures daily, but avoid using toothpaste, as it is too abrasive and can damage them. Always use dentist-approved denture cleaner or mild hand soaps.
– Dentures can crack and break if they dry out, so always soak them in a dentist-approved cleaning solution when not in use. Plain water can also be used as a substitute.
– Keep your mouth clean at all times, even when not wearing your dentures. Do not insert dirty dentures back into your mouth, and be sure to wash away any chemicals from your dentures if they were soaked in a cleaning solution.
