How to Solve the Problem of Denture

Abstract: As more and more people are beginning to focus on dental health, the problem of denture is also paid attention. However, what is the problem of denture and how to solve it?

According to denture experts in Ismile shanghai dental , it is important to remove potential dangerous biofilms. However, there is some bad news that it is easy for your choppers to be covered with thin layers of icky, which is known as biofilms. What is worse, some biofilm such as MRSA and drug-resistant staphylococcus aurous bacteria can lurk on the dentures. And then with breathing, they enter into the lungs, which may in turn lead to the nasty, hard-to-treat infections.

Luckily, there have been scientists who are paying attention to how to solve the problem of denture and there are two simple solutions. Firstly, zap your dentures in the microwave for three minutes. Secondly, soak them in a solution of 2 percent chlorhexidine gluconate for ten minutes. The two methods are useful in a long term, which can be used to disinfect dentures coated with toughest MRSA biofilms for up to a week. In addition, there is another method, that is, soak the dentures in sodium hypochlorite, which is effective for a relatively short term. The first method is new in killing MRSA.

Scientists think that there are links between the bacteria in the mouth and systemic effects. As more and more researchers are focusing on the links between oral bacteria and heart disease, the concern about biofilms on dentures is becoming hot. Besides, the connection between chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, respiratory diseases, and dentures is also focused on. A kind of polymer matrix gets together and then adheres tightly to surfaces to form self-sustaining microbial communities.

The biofilms can migrate into those tiny wounds, and then lead to systemic illness, if people get cuts or lesions in their mouths. In America, there are about 25 percent people who have no teeth between the age of 65 and 74, and many of those wear dentures, so the method to solve the problem of denture is special vital for them. Therefore, those denture-wearers should wash their false teeth daily, and a stiff and soap and water are necessary, instead of toothpaste. In addition, it is better for those to have mechanical action so the bacteria can be removed. Some dentists suggest that when you have a cold or flu, you should adopt the method of microwave or go to hospital to replace their toothbrush.
