Before reading this, you should explore our partial and full dentures post that goes over the types of dentures in more detail (If not, that is okay too I guess). Now, let’s get started!
Keeping your dentures clean is vital to their longevity and your oral health (who would have guessed?) Gently brush your dentures DAILY using a soft-bristle brush and a non-abrasive denture cleaner or mild soap. Avoid using regular toothpaste, as it can be too harsh for denture materials and cause scratches.
Soak and Rinse
To prevent your dentures from drying out and becoming brittle, store them in a denture cleaning solution or plain water overnight. Rinse your dentures thoroughly before placing them back in your mouth each morning. Proper soaking and rinsing help maintain the denture’s shape and prevent discomfort- it is a need!
Handle with Care
Handle your dentures with care to avoid accidental damage. When cleaning or soaking them, place a towel or a bowl of water in the sink to cushion any potential falls. Additionally, avoid using excessive force when handling your dentures to prevent bending or breakage.
Regular Dental Check-ups
Don’t forget to schedule regular check-ups with your primary dental care team. Don’t have one? Check out our skilled dental team at Cincy Dentist!
