Proper Oral Hygiene for Patients with Prosthodontic Teeth


Posted on 9/12/2022 by Dr. Hallas
Proper Oral Hygiene for Patients with Prosthodontic TeethOral hygiene is one of the most important aspects of taking care of your prosthodontic teeth. It is crucial to remove all bacteria, plaque, and tartar buildup daily to maintain optimal oral health. This guide will discuss the best ways to clean your teeth and gums when you have prosthetic teeth. We will also provide tips for maintaining healthy teeth and gums.

Use a Soft-Bristled Toothbrush


You can use a soft-bristled brush to avoid irritating your teeth and gums. Be sure to brush all of your teeth, including hard-to-reach areas, twice a day. The toothbrush should be replaced in three to four months, or sooner if the bristles become frayed.

Floss Daily


Flossing involves using a thin string (dental floss) to remove plaque and food debris from your teeth. It's essential to floss daily because it helps remove plaque and bacteria from areas your toothbrush can't reach. The floss is made of nylon or other synthetic material and is available in various flavors.

Rinse With Water After Brushing


After brushing your teeth, it is important to rinse your mouth with water. It will help remove any bacteria or plaque that may be left on your teeth. Rinsing with water will also help keep your gums healthy. It helps to remove any food particles that may be stuck in your teeth.

Avoid Using Mouthwash With Alcohol


Mouthwash containing alcohol can dry the mouth and lead to an overgrowth of bacteria. Instead, choose a mouthwash that contains natural ingredients like xylitol and mint oil. Alcoholic mouthwashes can also contribute to the staining of your teeth. Natural ingredients also help to refresh your breath without the use of harsh chemicals.

Our expert dentists can help you to choose the best mouthwash for your needs. Contact us today to book an appointment. Prosthetic teeth require special care and attention to keep them clean and free of bacteria. Follow these tips to ensure that your prosthetic teeth are correctly cared for.
