"How Dentures Can Lead to Halitosis"
Posted on 5/25/2018 by Tuttle Crossing Dental Group
Dentures aren't any different from your natural teeth in that plaque and tartar can build up on them. This often leads to bad breath (a.k.a. halitosis) which occurs when food particles become lodged under your dentures. The combination of plaque and food particles create this unpleasant smell. Bacteria can also do the same thing if it builds up from you not brushing your dentures every day. How to Avoid Halitosis When Wearing DenturesFortunately, there are several things that you can do to avoid halitosis when you're wearing dentures. Obviously, one of the most important things you can do is clean them every day. This will remove any food and plaque from your dentures. To clean your dentures, you'll need to soak, brush, and rinse them thoroughly. You need to use a special denture cleansing tablet like Polydent to keep away odor-causing bacteria. After soaking them you'll need to use a soft-bristle brush to remove any additional debris, then rinse them thoroughly under running water. Another product you should use is denture adhesive. This helps prevent food from getting trapped under your dentures because it seals them to your gums. You'll also enjoy your food more knowing your dentures are securely in place. Additionally, it's important to always take your dentures out before going to sleep at night. This stops bacteria from forming and growing overnight while also giving your mouth and gums the rest they need. Even though you're wearing dentures, you still need to see us on a regular basis. We need to make sure that your dentures are still in good condition and that your mouth is healthy overall. Once you make an appointment, you can also ask us any questions you have about your dentures, including how to properly care for and clean them. So, make sure you make an appointment with us today....

Dangers of Exercising Too Soon Following Dental Implant Placement
Posted on 5/15/2018 by Tuttle Crossing Dental Group
Once you've had dental implant surgery we'll give you some simple instructions you'll need to follow throughout your recovery. This includes information on what activities you can do afterwards. What you can do After Dental Implant PlacementOn the day of your surgery, you'll need to go home and rest. You should try to remain lying down or leaning back. Although you probably won't feel any pain on that day, you still need to be careful when standing up and moving around because you can easily become light headed with any type of sudden movement. This is also why you shouldn't exercise right away after having dental implant surgery. Even if you exercise on a regular basis, you shouldn't resume your routine for three or four days after your surgery. Things like bending, lifting, and strenuous activity can increase bleeding, swelling, and pain. Part of this is because after surgery, you can't eat like you normally do so, you're a bit weaker than normal. When you're finally able to start exercising again, you should watch for bleeding. If this happens, stop what you're doing immediately and contact us. This is something you'll usually only experience with strenuous sports though (e.g. boxing, karate, football, hockey). You should always wear a mouth guard when engaging in sports like these too. Precautionary measures are a good thing to take since you want to continue maintaining a healthy, shiny smile. It's only natural that you may have questions about your exercise routine. Although we encourage you to talk to us at the time of your dental implant placement, you should never ""fear"" reaching out to us. We're here for you from the moment we suggest getting dental implants to the point you feel comfortable like you would with your natural teeth. This is why we hope we're the ones you call upon for this surgery....

What is the Most Common Reason People Get Partial Dentures?
Posted on 4/23/2018 by Tuttle Crossing Dental Group
Unlike full dentures that serve as replacement teeth when no natural teeth remain in the mouth, partial dentures are created specifically to replace or fill the gap left by a couple of missing teeth. Partial dentures readily address the aesthetic problems of people with a few missing teeth. They are also less expensive compared with other options such as dental implants and much easier to maintain as it can be readily taken out for cleaning and worn again afterward. If you have queries about partial dentures, you can give us a call and we can discuss it further. Types of Partial DenturesThere are several types of partial dentures such as removable partial dentures, which is the most common type and the most affordable option. In this type, the dentures or false teeth are securely attached to the mouth through a metal framework. Another type is the flexible all acrylic partial dentures, which is much lighter and more aesthetically pleasing because it looks more natural sans the metal framework. Another type utilizes dental implants as an anchor to hold the partial dentures in place. There is also one known as transitional partial dentures, which, as the name suggests, is used temporarily while transitioning to dental implants. Important Reminders on Caring for Your Partial DenturesNeedless to say, it is of vital importance to keep your partial dentures clean and in good condition at all times for it to last long and to prevent further dental or oral problems later on. Make sure that you brush your dentures regularly using plain water and mild cleanser. While soaking your dentures in hot water may seem like a good sterilizing idea, do not do it as it can result in denture warping. Most importantly, do not fail to pay us a visit when you encounter denture problems such as cracking or chipping, among others....
