For those with dentures, keeping them clean and well maintained is vital for the health of your gum tissues, says Ryan Carlton of Dentures Plus in Innes Road.
He and his team of clinicians provide services for full and partial dentures from making and fitting them, follow- care, through to repairs and relining and a full range of dentures cleaning products.
These include dentures cleaners, brushes and dentures baths for soaking the dentures.
One product Ryan particularly recommends is Caldent denture cleaner, as it is non-abrasive and effectively removes stains, calculus and plaque.
“It works wonders’, he says ‘Years of stains and plaque can be removed wit this product”.
Customers don’t have to make a special trip to Dentures Plus to purchase it; they can order it online here for delivery throughout the country, Ryan says.
People may need to get full or partial dentures for various reasons, such as accidents or tooth decay, and Ryan and his two other clinicians, Nicole Yee and Thomas Gu, will ensure the whole process goes as smoothly as possible.
“We provide the right treatment plan and solution for our patients. Once we have seen them, we make up the dentures before their appointment with the dentist for the extractions”, Ryan says.
“After the teeth are extracted, the dentures are fitted immediately – this gives a better result”.
A follow-up appointment after a few months will enable the clinician to check that the dentures are fitting correctly and make any necessary adjustments.
Ryan also advises that people with existing dentures should have them checked every two to three years to make sure they are not starting to wear, which could cause discomfort the future. A free, no obligation check-up will determine if the dentures need some attention or even replacing.
