The best way to ensure you’ll always have a winning smile is to take great care of your pearly white gnashers. A strict routine of brushing, flossing and general oral hygiene is important, especially when you consider that millions of people discover they need to be fitted for dentures when they get older. Although dentures can be the answer to regaining that beautiful beam, most of us have probably met someone whose false teeth didn’t fit them very well.

But surely denture wearing doesn’t have to be such an awkward experience?

This causes problems when chewing and has a big impact on surrounding muscles and your jaw joints.”
