Many people believe that dentures, unlike natural teeth, are impervious to stains, chipping, and readjustments. In fact, dentures require just as much care. For example, you will need to revisit your dentist every so often to make sure your dentures still fit properly, just as eyeglasses prescriptions require regular checkups.

Another myth is that you can wear dentures all day and night. Remember that dentures are products that require cleaning. Make sure to remove your dentures at least once per day or overnight and place them in an approved cleaning solution. Most dentists recommend leaving them out at night, as some individuals clench their teeth in their sleep and create unhealthy pressure in the mouth.

Dentures can feel natural over time, but there are cases where you should not think of dentures as natural teeth. For example, avoid biting into hard foods such as apples using your front teeth; the pressure causes damage to and shifts in your bones, making future denture fittings difficult.
