Hello dear See brushing is must whether you have dentures or not since absence of brushing increases chances of plaque accumulation which further causes dental caries and periodontitis. Tooth once broken will not regenerate.for further details you can consult me Thanks

Hello ma'am 1. Using a toothbrush and toothpaste once daily for dentures is a good practice. Also, they should be kept in plain water at night. Flossing is not required for dentures. 2. Simply cleaning the gums daily with a clean finger is often good enough to maintain oral hygiene if no teeth are present. Toothpaste is optional 3. An adult broken tooth will not repair itself or grow back I hope these answers were to your satisfaction. You can contact me for any further queries. Thank you!
