How To Prevent Dentures
Today, we know that preventing tooth decay and the need for dentures is the way to go, no matter what they're made of. Practicing good oral hygiene by brushing twice a day and flossing daily helps prevent decay and the need for tooth extractions.
For people who wear full or partial dentures, having them made by a trained dentist ensures that they will be as comfortable and natural-looking as possible. Always use a soft-bristled toothbrush to clean your dentures daily, just like your regular teeth. Also, make sure to clean your gums, tongue, and the roof of your mouth. And rinse your dentures to wash off any leftover food particles.
Now you know the history of dentures and how much we've advanced since the days of grave robbing and wooden teeth. Interestingly, people have been looking to replace their missing teeth for such a long time in our history. As we know now, it's much better to prevent the need for dentures than to get them. So, remember to keep your dentures bright and clean! That way, no one will mistakenly think you have wooden teeth like George Washington.
