Could Your Dentures Cause Your Breath to Stink?

Could Your Dentures Cause Your Breath to Stink?Also known as false teeth, dentures are of great importance to a lot of people. Especially if you have been in an accident or simply had to have your teeth removed for one reason or another, dentures are convenient.

They help you get back the natural feeling of functionality for your teeth and also help you with aesthetics since the dentures look so realistic it's often impossible to tell them apart by just looking. However, just like regular teeth, your dentures could be a source of bad breath if you don't take care of them well enough. Here are a few reasons why your dentures can be the cause of your bad breath.

Tartar And Plaque

Just like healthy teeth, dentures do collect tartar and plaque if they are left alone. When someone doesn't take good care of their teeth, traces of the above substances begin to form on the outer shell of the dentures. With time, they grow, and their impact on the mouth can be felt more strongly. Just like your natural teeth, daily cleaning is a must. When you clean every day, you eliminate the chance of having bad breath altogether.

Food Particles

If you do not take the dentures out to soak them and brush them, bacteria in the mouth begin breaking it down for its food, and as a byproduct, sulfur is released, which then causes a terrible odor. It is also important to inspect your dentures regularly and remove any unwanted debris from between the false teeth as this too can lead to unpleasant odors.

Although dentures can give you back what you think was lost when your teeth fell off, they can also be a source of great distress. If you are thinking about getting dentures or have been having issues with the ones you have, book an appointment today and let us take care of you. Our professionals will make sure that you leave our offices with a big smile on your face.
