Focusing On Your Whole Body Health

Traducir al español: English | Spanish

The image of a glass full of false teeth on the nightstand is plastered all throughout popular culture. You would think that soaking your dentures in water and cleaner is sufficient, but Dr. Lerner reminds us that proper denture care requires more than just that.

In fact, denture maintenance is an important part of oral health. For Yorktown Heights residents who have dentures or are considering them, it is important to know exactly how they function and how to care for them.

How do Dentures Work?

Dentures are intended for Yorktown Heights residents who have lost most or all of their teeth. Dentures are removable dental appliances that look nearly identical to natural teeth. They also function in the same way, allowing folks with little or no remaining teeth to eat and speak normally. In addition to improving oral health, facial structure, and smile, having a good set of dentures can mean a world of difference for your general health.

How to Care for Your Dentures

Although dentures are not real teeth, they require similar care to keep them clean, safe and functioning properly. If you have dentures, keeping them clean is an important part of your oral health. Here are some tips on how to care for your dentures:

  • Clean your dentures every day by soaking them in a cleaning solution. Creams and pastes can be rough on dentures and do not work as well as a decent soak.
  • Make sure to rinse your dentures thoroughly before putting them back into your mouth.
  • Do not put any denture cleaning products in your mouth. All creams, pastes, gels, and solutions are intended for the dentures only.
  • Don’t ever boil your dentures. Although it is common to think of boiling water as the ultimate disinfectant, it will harm your dentures, causing them to warp.
  • You may soak your dentures in bleach solutions (diluted), but limit exposure to 10 minutes.

"Excellent experience during my initial consultation. The most complete examination I have ever had by a dentist, including full body muscle testing. This testing uncovered major alignment issues with my jaw which has been causing a lifetime of misalignment throughout the rest of my body. Dr. Lerner and his staff are outside the box thinkers and I am very happy I have found them."
