Good oral hygiene can prevent tooth decay, gum disease and bad breath. Even if you have no natural teeth left, it's still important to have regular check-ups. Your dentist will check the fit of your dentures and look for any problem areas on your gums and soft tissue.
The Oral Health Foundation website outlines some simple things that you can do to look after your dental health.
If you’re pregnant there is some useful information to help you on Looking after your oral health in pregnancy.
