Everyone was admiring her new denture. It was shining bright and new and gave her smile a branded, high profile look. Why not? She got it from the ultramodern outlet at the big mall where we all used to window-shop. We definitely knew that she would have got it at a staggering price, her smiles showed that. Definitely, a million-dollar smile!

A quick tragedy

Her sense of pride turned into head pounding loss the next day itself. It was lunchtime and people were strolling here and there, around the tables and chairs. After the meal, she took out the denture and kept it on the table with the intention of giving it a ‘high quality’ brushing. It was taking an unusually high time to take out the cleaning items and cleanse the denture.

During the long process, she had to place it on the table and in a fraction of a second it was missing. Someone had accidentally hit on the table and the denture fell on the floor. No one walking nearby took notice of it and was quickly stamped over. The shock left her into a statue as she silently watched it getting stamped more and more.

The artificial teeth definitely got noticed by the strollers after stepping on it, but who will pick it up.

The million dollar smile turned into an unparalleled loss of pride and to pocket. The unusual cleaning time was because she had to fight hard for completely removing the adhesive cream on it. Irrespective of whether you buy the denture from an expensive mall or a small clinic, it should serve the utility and we should pick up the right products keeping in mind the challenges with denture handling.

Now, I always hear her advising new denture aspiring friends to get an Easly removable denture cream instead of focussing only on the denture brand.
