Health Tip: Caring for Dentures

(HealthDay News) -- Dentures are false teeth that can be easily taken out or put back in a person's mouth.
While they'll never feel exactly like a person's real teeth, they'll make it easier for a person to eat, and will fill space that was once occupied by actual pearly whites.
The American Dental Association mentions these denture-care suggestions:
- Place dentures in water or in a denture cleanser when they are not being worn. This will help dentures retain their shape, remain pliable and prevent them from drying out.
- Dentures should never be placed in hot water, which can cause them to warp.
- Don't use bleach or powdered household cleansers to clean dentures. These abrasives can damage dentures.
- An adhesive is not a remedy for ill-fitting dentures, which may need to be relined or replaced.
