Full Dentures in St. Catharines
How To Care For Your Full Dentures
Complete full dentures in St. Catharines are designed to replace any missing teeth while improving your smile’s appearance at the same time. They can be made from different materials, but are always designed to look natural.
It’s important to remember that food and plaque can stick to dentures the same way they did to your natural teeth. That’s why cleaning these artificial teeth is just as important to your overall oral health.
It’s best to brush your dentures daily using the following:
- Mild soap or an approved denture cleaning solution.
- A soft bristled toothbrush, a soft towel and some water.
It’s necessary to remove and rinse your dentures after every meal. Loose particles and other food debris can easily be removed by running water over them. You can put your soft towel in the sink so your full dentures in St. Catharines won’t break or get damaged if you drop them accidentally.
Your soft bristled toothbrush gets used next. Brush your dentures gently so plaque, food particles and bacteria are loosened and removed. All the areas on the surface of your dentures need to be cleaned. A nonabrasive denture cleanser can be used here. Make sure to clean the grooves that sit against your gums if you use a recommended adhesive.
Most of these appliances should stay moist so they keep their shape. That’s why you should soak them in a mild denture solution or water overnight. Make sure you talk to us about proper methods for storing them while you sleep. You should also read the manufacturer’s instructions on soaking and cleaning solutions.
Before you put them back in your mouth, these dental appliances should be rinsed thoroughly. That’s especially important if you are using a denture soaking solution. While they do their job well, these solutions can also contain harmful chemicals that can cause problems if swallowed.
Good oral health depends on regular visits. Generally it is suggested that if you have full dentures in St. Catharines, you come in and see us once every six months. Don’t hesitate to make an appointment if your dentures start to feel uncomfortable or slip. If they make noise when you eat or talk, we can also make some necessary adjustments. We can also help you by fitting a new set if your existing ones are broken or visibly worn.

“If you need the services of a denturist, do not hesitate to contact Verroche Denture Clinic. I am thrilled that I did. Paul and Jonathan Verroche gave me my confidence back. I have my smile back (and believe me, I smile all the time now), my dentures look great, and I feel great. When I first visited their office, I was very nervous not knowing what to expect, knowing that I had to do something as my teeth were terrible; I was always trying not to smile. They explained the procedures that would take place and put my mind at ease. I was very impressed with their expertise, competence, and dedication to their patients. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is considering dentures. I am so very happy with the results — they are wonderful.”– H.P., St. Catharines, Ontario
“I was recommended to the Verroche Denture Clinic after much frustration with my dentist. I was having a lot of difficulty chewing causing me to choke often from trying to swallow partially chewed food. Being very self conscious about my smile which showed very worn and missing teeth, I decided to see the team at the Verroche Denture Clinic. I felt welcomed and confident on my first visit. The staff was very friendly and started on a plan for improving my bite and smile. Many options were discussed; medical consultations were suggested and within a very short time we all agreed on a treatment plan specially designed for me.I am now able to eat the foods that I had been missing for so long and the best part is that I can smile and eat with confidence. Thank you Verroche Team!”– D.C., St. Catharines, Ontario
