Dental prostheses needs to be properly cleaned daily as plaque gets into the mouth every day.
The patient with the dental prosthesis needs to be taught how to clean it properly and should visit the dentist at least once a year for a check-up and to have the prosthesis cleaned.
Patients often believe that once the prosthesis is in place, it basically does not require maintenance. This could not be further from the truth. Dental prostheses need similar care to natural teeth. Good hygiene is essential so the work done remains in a perfect state for many years in the patient’s mouth. Furthermore, regular check-ups, as noted before, are vital so the technician can check that the prosthesis is correctly adjusted and the soft tissue is in good condition.
