When you decide to get dentures, Cambridge dental staff such as the team at Riverside Dental Care will work with you so that you know how to care for them properly. There’s a good reason for that. While dentures aren’t subject to decay as are natural teeth, they can become discoloured and cracked if not given the proper treatment. Caring for dentures can be a lifestyle adjustment at first, but for most individuals it soon becomes a natural part of daily life.

For example, it is always a good idea to remove your dentures and give them a quick rinse after you have eaten, especially with foods that could potentially stain or those that leave behind gritty residue. In addition to cleaning one’s dentures, you should also clean your mouth, generally with a soft-bristled toothbrush. Remember that even without teeth, one’s oral health is still important and it is vital to keep the cheeks, gums, tongue, and palate clean.

At night, dentures will need to be soaked – a mild solution may or may not be necessary, depending on one’s preferences. However, always rinse the dentures before putting them back in your mouth, especially if using a denture solution.

When you get dentures in Cambridge, your dental team can discuss the best products to use to help care for your dentures and ensure their longevity as well as your own oral health. If you have dentures already and need a replacement, or are considering dentures, we invite you to come to Riverside Dental Care and speak with us. We would be happy to help you learn more about life with dentures and what you can expect.

Being a natural wimp when it comes to Dentists I cannot speak highly enough of the team at Riverside Dental. Maia was... just lovely, as was her assistant Alice. I am more that happy to recommend them. Also, a pat on the back to Nicki in reception.read more

Jacqui was quite simply amazing with my 9 year old daughter today, who needed a filling. She explained the process in a... fantastic child friendly way. When she ‘put the tooth to sleep’ I expected my daughter to be in tears, but she didn’t even notice. I still don’t think she realises there was a needle and drill involved! Everyone left with big smiles, after a completely pain and trauma free experience. I would highly recommend Jacqui. Oh, and she does a similarly excellent job cleaning my teeth!read more
