Caring for Your Dentures
August 27th, 2015 by Dr. Watson

The image of a glass full of false teeth on the nightstand is plastered all throughout popular culture. You would think that soaking your dentures in water and cleaner is sufficient, but Dr. Watson reminds us that proper denture care requires more than just that. In fact, denture maintenance is an important part of oral health. For Jackson residents who have dentures or are considering them, it is important to know exactly how they function and how to care for them. If you have any questions, please give us a call at Jackson Center for Smiles.
