We all know Santa Claus, the jolly, white-bearded bringer of gifts. But did you know that he also wears dentures? Yes, that’s right! And he trusts the Community Denture Centre in Penticton to keep them in tip-top shape. So, how does Santa keep his dentures bright and sparkling? In this blog post, we’ll spill the beans on his secret.
First and foremost, Santa maintains a strict oral hygiene regimen. He brushes his remaining teeth and dentures twice a day with a soft-bristled brush and non-abrasive toothpaste. He also flosses his teeth and rinses his mouth with antiseptic mouthwash. These habits prevent the buildup of plaque and harmful bacteria that can stain and damage his dentures.
In addition to these basic practices, Santa visits the Community Denture Centre regularly for professional cleanings and checkups. Our skilled denturists use ultrasonic technology to remove stubborn stains and buildup without damaging the denture surface. They also examine Santa’s gums and oral tissues for any signs of infection or disease that could affect his denture fit and comfort.
Being the sweet-toothed person that he is, Santa loves his candy canes, gingerbread cookies, and hot cocoa. But these treats can leave stubborn stains on his dentures if not cleaned properly. To avoid this, Santa rinses his mouth with water or brushes his dentures after eating sugary or acidic foods. He also avoids chewing on hard, sticky, or crunchy foods that can damage his dentures or dislodge them from his mouth.
Santa likes to keep his dentures fresh and odour-free, especially during his busy Christmas Eve ride. To achieve this, he soaks his dentures overnight in a solution of water and denture cleanser. He also avoids smoking and drinking alcohol, as these can leave unsavory smells on his dentures and mouth.
Finally, Santa has a great sense of humour and doesn’t take himself too seriously. He embraces his dentures as part of his unique personality and uses them to make children laugh and smile. He also knows that dentures are not just for seniors but for anyone who wants to enjoy a healthy, confident smile. That’s why he encourages everyone to visit the Community Denture Centre and experience the same quality care and attention that he receives.
