Spring has finally arrived and that means it’s time to start thinking about your dental health. A visit to your denturist should be a top priority this season. Not only will visiting the denturist allow you to get your dentures professionally cleaned, but they can also check on your oral health and make any necessary readjustments in your dentures. Let’s look closer at why a spring trip to the denturist is essential.
The primary reason for visiting the denturist is to get a professional cleaning of your denture. Over time, bacteria, tartar, plaque and other debris can accumulate on the surface of your denture. This debris not only affects the look of the appliance but can also lead to bad breath and other oral hygiene issues. A professional cleaning will remove all these substances and make sure that you have a bright smile all spring long.
Your dentist will also check on your oral health during the visit. They will examine your mouth for signs of any underlying issues such as gum disease, dry mouth or oral cancer. Early detection is key when it comes to identifying these issues so regular visits are important for maintaining good dental hygiene.
Readjustments in Your Dentures
Visiting the dentist for an annual checkup is especially important if you wear partial or full dentures as there may be some readjustment required over time due to changes in jaw structure or facial shape from aging or weight loss/gain. The dentist can make subtle adjustments in order to ensure that you are comfortable wearing your appliance throughout the day without causing any pain or discomfort in your mouth or jaw area.
Now that spring has arrived, it’s time to make sure that you keep up with regular visits to the dentist—especially if you wear full or partial dentures! A visit this season can help maintain a bright smile while also checking on any potential underlying issues with your oral health and making sure that any necessary readjustments are made to ensure comfort while wearing your appliance all day long.
