How to take care of your appliance
Smile Boutique NY appreciates your choice in selecting our products. We are committed to ensuring that our products and services not only meet but exceed your expectations, helping you achieve the dream smile you've always desired.
Adapting to your new appliance:
Our primary goal is your satisfaction and the seamless adaptation of your new dental appliance to your teeth and mouth, ensuring optimal comfort.
The adaptation process typically ranges from one day to a maximum of two weeks. We recommend wearing your appliance consistently throughout the day, especially for the first week, before reaching out to us for any adjustments. This allows for the best possible fit and ensures your comfort in the long run. Feel free to contact us if you have any concerns or require further assistance after the initial adaptation period.
It's completely normal to experience feelings of irritation or discomfort when you first introduce a new appliance into your mouth. This initial sensation is expected during the initial hours of wearing the appliance. Your mouth may need some time to adapt, and these sensations usually subside as you become accustomed to the new addition.
All these psychological effects are temporary and will be resolved two week of regular use.
We appreciate your patience during this adjustment period.
1. Easy Smile Veneers are less than 0.5 mm thick, causing no teeth prominence initially. However, you may perceive a slight prominence due to the sudden change in upper lip position. This adjustment typically occurs as your top lip adapts to the new veneers in a few days.
2. You might feel a marginal increase in the width of your teeth in all dimensions, but this change is less than 0.5 mm.
3. Difficulty in pronouncing certain sounds like S, CH, and Sh is normal initially. Regular practice will resolve this issue within a few days.
4. Easy Smile Veneers provide white, bright, and perfectly straight teeth. The sudden transformation may surprise you, your relatives, and friends, but these reactions are temporary.
Insertion and Removal Instruction:
1. Use your fingertips to delicately put on or remove your veneers.
2. When inserting your veneers, gently slide them over your front teeth, then exert even pressure on both sides to secure them in place.
3. Occasionally, during the insertion process, it's acceptable to make slight adjustments by gently twisting the veneers if needed.
4. Ensure that your veneers are fully seated on your teeth at all times.
5. When removing your veneers, use the tips of your fingernails to gently pull out both back sides of the veneers, then proceed to pull the front off.
Caring for your veneers:
It is advisable to clean your veneers after each use. Use a soft toothbrush with water and liquid soap to gently brush both the inner and outer surfaces. This will help maintain the cleanliness and longevity of your veneers.
- After cleaning, shake it well to dry.
- Always remove your veneers before going to sleep and store them in their protective box.
- Avoid using toothpaste on them.
- Avoid soaking them in mouthwash. Avoid placing them in water hotter than 120°F.
- Avoid drying your veneers with hot air.
Additionally, it's recommended not to consume very hot drinks while wearing your veneers. Following these guidelines will contribute to the optimal care and maintenance of your veneers.
While eating is not recommended with your veneers, you can use them to consume very soft foods, such as yogurt. They are also suitable for enjoying warm and cold drinks. However, it's essential to avoid biting into hard or sticky substances to maintain the longevity and integrity of your veneers.
If you notice any unpleasant odor, soak your veneers in concentrated soap for approximately 1 hour. After soaking, carefully brush them with soap and water to ensure thorough cleaning and eliminate any lingering smell. This routine can help maintain the freshness of your veneers.
Wearing your new partial denture is similar to breaking in a new pair of shoes. We recommend gradually increasing the wearing time each day to allow for a more natural and comfortable adjustment.
Chewing may be challenging initially, so it's best to start with softer, cut-up foods and gradually progress to other types as you become accustomed to the partial denture. Avoiding very hard or sticky foods is advised to prevent damage.
Speaking with the partial denture may also require some practice. Reading aloud and repeating challenging words can help improve pronunciation over time.
For the well-being of both your partial denture and your jaw, it's important to remove it before sleeping and reinsert it upon waking. With a bit of time and patience, you'll find that wearing a partial denture becomes a comfortable and familiar part of your daily routine, allowing you to enjoy your favorite foods and speak clearly.
Caring for your flexible denture/flipper:
- Ensure to select a high-quality denture cleaner for effective cleaning. Denture tablets combined with warm water provide a reliable method for thorough cleaning. Employing a personal ultrasonic cleaner with these tablets can offer a deep clean, eliminating stains and debris buildup.
- Avoid using toothpaste, as it can be too abrasive for denture cleaning. Some individuals opt for hand soap or mild dishwashing liquid, both of which are acceptable for cleaning partials.
- Daily brushing is crucial to remove food deposits and plaque, preventing permanent staining and extending the life of the denture. Use a soft-bristled brush designed specifically for denture cleaning, steering clear of hard bristles to avoid damage.
- To maintain the proper shape of the denture, keep it moist. Before bedtime, remove the denture and soak it in a suitable solution or water. This routine ensures proper care and longevity of your appliance.
Inserting Flexible Dentures:
1. Wet the denture with water or a saliva substitute to enhance flexibility.
2. Begin placing the denture by positioning it at the back of your mouth.
3. Gently guide the denture over your natural teeth, ensuring the front teeth are the last to be covered.
4. Use both hands to apply equal pressure on both sides of the denture, guiding it into place.
Removing Flexible Dentures:
1. Start by using your fingers to lift the denture slightly away from your natural teeth.
2. Gradually work your way around the denture, lifting it off each tooth gently.
3. Once the denture is lifted on one side, slide it out of your mouth by gently pulling it away from your gums.
Adjusting to a night guard is a valuable effort as it safeguards against teeth grinding and clenching. With persistence, you'll grow accustomed to this custom-fitted mouthpiece, providing peace of mind for better sleep. Initially, wearing the device may feel unfamiliar, but any minor discomfort should fade as you get used to wearing your custom night guard overnight.
A night guard serves to protect your teeth but may also increase saliva production in your mouth. Though natural, excessive moisture can affect sleep quality. A simple solution is to take a few sips of water before bed and swallow regularly while wearing the custom night guard.
Wearing a night guard may alter your bite slightly compared to without it. This is normal as the night guard creates a barrier between your teeth. There's no cause for concern; it's a typical part of wearing a custom-fit night guard.
Night guards are not indestructible and will wear out over time. The standard lifespan is six months to a year, depending on the type of night guard. If you observe signs of wear or damage, it's time to replace the night guard to maintain its effectiveness.
Caring for your custom night guard: After removal, clean the appliance with a soft denture brush and mild hand or dishwashing soap. Avoid brushing too harshly on the soft inner lining. Never use an abrasive toothbrush, like a denture toothbrush. Do not soak the appliance in mouthwash or alcohol-based rinses. Avoid soaking in bleach or harsh chemicals. Never boil the appliance, as it can distort. Soak your night guard in denture cleaner for a maximum of 20 minutes once a week. Store the night guard in a dry case when not in use.
