Whether through age or accident, dentures may be needed to restore your teeth. Dentures are ideal for many people and have been used for decades with long-lasting success. To help you understand more about dentures, our dentist, Dr. Brandon Cera with Northside Dental in Santa Fe, New Mexico, has offered you this insight about them.

As we age, it is not unusual to need dentures. To understand more about dentures, they are frankly removable teeth replacements that are designed to act as your regular teeth would. Dentures help you talk, chew your food, and keep your smile looking beautiful thanks to the ease of their use and denture adhesives to help keep them in place. Dentures in recent years have much improved in both comfort and durability.

When it comes to dentures, always remember to brush them daily and to soak them in a denture cleaning solution at night, so they do not dry out and become damaged. If you have a problem with your dentures such as a crack, chip or break, or if they become too loose, then make sure you come in to see our dentist, so we can get them adequately fixed and restored for you.
