What if I’m with someone and I start pronouncing my words in a funny way? What if they notice something’s wrong with my teeth? What if I leave my dinner plate untouched because I don’t think I can eat it? What if I feel they aren’t securely in place? Life with dentures is full of “what ifs”. Fixodent is here to help, with its strong hold and… some helpful tips on how to wear dentures with confidence.
1. Be confident. Dentures can improve your facial appearance and self-confidence, help you speak better and improve the chewing of most foods. Dentures can achieve all this if you stick to Fixodent denture adhesive, because they’ll keep them firmly in place and help avoid any embarrassing slip-ups.
2. Keep your dentures clean. At the end of the day, remove and clean your dentures with a soft toothbrush and do the same with your gums by doing a soft massage. This way you’ll be sure to remove any particles. Refresh your mouth with an alcohol-free mouthwash. Also, remember to keep them in a wet container when you’re not using them.
3. Check them with a dental professional. Once a year, check your gums with a dentist or prosthodontist. Even without natural teeth, your whole oral cavity can be subject to infections. A professional will be the best to know if your denture experience is going well, and in case of a prosthodontist, he’ll be the best suited to solve complex issues like restoring used dentures or fabricating a new one.
At the beginning, life with dentures may be an experience full of question marks, but we hope to have turned some of those questions into chances to embrace them with confidence.
