How to Keep Your Mouth Healthy with Partials


Posted on 10/20/2018 by Lemond Hunter
How to Keep Your Mouth Healthy with PartialsGetting partials can help you replace missing teeth without committing to full dentures. This is especially a good option for people who are just missing a few teeth from an otherwise healthy smile.

However, once you have partials, there are some things you need to do in order to ensure the continued health of your mouth.

Continue Brushing and Flossing Your Natural Teeth as Usual

First, of course you should not neglect the natural teeth that you still have. These teeth need to receive the same loving care you have always given them. Brushing at least twice a day and flossing every 24 hours can help make sure that those teeth which remain in your mouth stay healthy.

Remove the Partials Every Night

In addition, before you go to bed for the evening, you should be sure to take out the partials. After a period of time you will be so accustomed to having your partials in that you may forget it's even there. So you need to be diligent and remember to take it out.

When you take it out, you can clean it with a special brush designed specifically for the task. In addition, you should use a soft bristled toothbrush to gently rub the gum tissue and help clean it just in case there is any food detritus or other things that could harm your mouth's health.

Finally, while there are specialized cleaning agents designed specifically for your partials, remember that these agents may not be good for your natural teeth. This means you should never rinse with these types of cleaning agents when the partials are in your mouth. Always remove the partials for cleaning, and always rinse them thoroughly with clean water before replacing them.

By following these guidelines, you can help ensure that the rest of your mouth stays healthy while you use your partials.
