False teeth need care too

With the world population of over 60s expected to double by 2050, the Oral Health Foundation has just released new guidelines on denture care. Studies show that the advice given to people with full or partial dentures is often inconsistent and even contradictory. The new guidance sets out clearly the correct way to clean and soak dentures as well as the importance of not wearing dentures overnight, and of regular check-ups even for people with no natural teeth. The full guidelines as well as some useful resources can be downloaded from http://www.dentalhealth.org/denturecareguidelines
