The Best Way To Clean Dentures

Posted by: Dr. Sirakian     Categories: Cosmetic Dentistry, Oral Health

Having dentures can present a distinct set of challenges. From getting used to the fit in your mouth to the way it feels when you chew, there’s a learning curve when it comes to acclimating to life with dentures. Luckily, caring for your dentures themselves isn’t too difficult once you know what to do! Here are some simple steps to keep your new smile clean and comfortable.

1. First, you’ll want to rinse your dentures before brushing. This will help dislodge any food or debris before you go in with the toothbrush.

2. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush to clean all of the surfaces of your dentures. Make sure to use a non-abrasive cleanser to prevent scratching.

3. Make sure to also clean and brush your mouth well to avoid irritation and bad breath. Pay attention to your gums, cheeks, tongue, and the roof of your mouth to avoid any plaque buildup.

4. When not wearing your dentures, make sure to keep them in water to prevent warping.

Dentures can sometimes be tricky, but cleaning them shouldn’t have to be! As always, ask your dentist if you have any further questions about caring for your dentures.
