Denture wearers should realize that they are as prone to bad breath as their counterparts with normal teeth. It doesn’t matter much whether the dentures were crafted from the whitest porcelain by an experienced gentle dentist; like real teeth, these devices in the mouth are as susceptible to odor-producing bacterial growth if not maintained properly.
Compared to people with normal set of teeth, denture wearers, in fact, face additional challenges regarding bacterial activity inside their mouths. Bacteria can slither underneath the dentures’ nooks and crannies and begin to reproduce. If allowed to fester, their activity can build up gas that emits a foul odor.
