Our motto at Bradley L. Dyer DDS PC is, smile with confidence! To help you maintain a smile you can be proud of, we offer custom dentures for our patients in Sevierville, Tennessee wanting both pleasing and comfortable dental solutions. After we restore your smile with the help of our dentures, you will need to take excellent care of them so they can continue to serve you well. Let’s take a look:

– Begin by rinsing your dentures thoroughly after you eat. Wash off all food particles and oral debris to make sure your dentures continue to fit correctly as well as maintain good oral hygiene.

– Careful, you don’t want to drop them as you take them out! Many denture wearers have found that it helps to put a hand towel down in case they slip. You can provide extra safety by filling the sink partially with water to cushion any accidental drops. Also, please be gentle as you clean to avoid damaging the material or bending the clasps.

– The next step is cleaning your mouth after you eat. You can clear debris with a moistened piece of gauze or a soft-bristled tooth brush, and don’t forget your cheeks, palate, and tongue as you remove oral residue.

– In addition to cleaning your dentures after eating, you will want to brush your dentures thoroughly once a day to keep them in tip top shape.

– Whenever you remove your dentures from your mouth, or when you take them out at night, be sure to store them in a soaking solution to keep their shape. You can soak them in a non-abrasive denture cleaner or warm water–just never hot water. After using a denture soak, please rinse your denture appliance to clear off any solution residue.

– Part of your denture care maintenance means seeing your dentist regularly to receive denture cleanings, as well as oral exams, to make sure your mouth is healthy for your dentures.

If you would like to come in and evaluate our full or partial dentures, you can be sure we will take the best care of your smile. We invite you to call us at 865-453-2731 with any questions, concerns, or to schedule a consultation with Dr. Bradley Dyer. Get ready to smile with confidence!
