You deserve strong, reliable, and beautiful dentures. Unfortunately, having top-notch dentures isn’t quite automatic. You’ll need to do things regularly to keep your replacement teeth effective, strong, and beautiful, like clean them.
Cleaning your dentures can be simple and easy. The first tip we have is to rinse the appliance after you’ve eaten. This can help you avoid plaque buildup and stuck-on food particles from gathering on the appliance. Be careful as you rinse the denture. If you drop it, it could get damaged.
You also need to clean your mouth and denture daily. If you have remaining natural teeth, you need to brush them twice a day, floss them once a day, and rinse them daily. If you don’t have remaining teeth, you can clean your gums, cheeks, and tongue with a soft toothbrush or washcloth. Doing these things can help you keep your oral health and denture in tip-top shape. When you clean your denture, please use a soft-bristled toothbrush and nonabrasive toothpaste or denture cleaner. This can remove the plaque and food particles on your replacement teeth.
Lastly, keep your appliance moist by placing it in a cup of water or mild denture cleaning solution when you sleep. This can help it stay in the best shape possible.
