Special toothbrushes are required to clean and are specifically articulated for dentures. Bush and clean your teeth once or twice a day. To remove food, plaque, and other deposits from your dentures, soak them and wash them with a soft-bristled brush and nonabrasive denture cleanser. Clean the grooves that fit against your gums if you use denture adhesive to remove any residual glue. Denture cleaners are prohibited from being used in the mouth.
Soaking your dentures cleans them more thoroughly and is also used in keeping them overnight. While your dentures soak, denture cleaners eliminate microorganisms. When your dentures are out of your mouth, soak them in water or do a denture cleaning to avoid warping. Based on the cleanser’s instructions, determine how long your dentures can soak in water. Never soak your dentures in products containing sodium hypochlorite or sodium hypochlorite bleach for more than 10 minutes.
If you wear dentures, have frequent appointments with your dentist. Dentists can ensure that your dentures fit correctly in your mouth and determine any arising indicators of dental issues such as lesions or changes in your jaw. You might wish to have the denture cleaned by our dentist to utilize ultrasonic cleaners and other specialized devices. This eliminates any biofilm built upon the dentures over time. Loose dentures cause irritation, sores, and infections, prompting one to visit a dentist.
Handle dentures with care
Dentures are durable but susceptible to breakage if heavily dropped. After taking them out of the mouth, they should be stored on soft surfaces. Avoid complex food substances as they cause breakage to the dentures.
Proper denture storage.
Allowing your dentures to dry out may result in them losing their shape. Soak them in water or a denture-soaking solution when the dentures aren’t in your mouth. We recommend lukewarm water as extreme heat distorts dentures. Call us today and book an appointment with our skilled dentists.
