Tips for keeping your dentures clean

When it comes to the dos and don’ts of how to care for your dentures, the first step is to make sure that your dentures are clean. This is the first step in responsible denture care. A helpful approach to maintaining the cleanliness of your dentures is as follows:

At the end of your meal, remove them and give them a thorough washing. It is recommended that you run your dentures under a tap in order to eliminate any food particles or other debris that may be preventing them from functioning properly. 

If you want to avoid the possibility of your dentures being broken in the event that you accidentally drop them, you could place a washer in the sink. Take extra precautions while holding your dentures to avoid causing any harm to them.

Following the removal of your dentures, you should thoroughly clean your mouth. For the purpose of cleaning your mouth and preventing any damage to your oral cavity, you will need to make use of a toothbrush that is gentle.

Make sure that you brush your dentures every day to ensure that they are clear of plaque and other deposits that are caused by food.

Your dentures should be soaked overnight. It is for this reason that they are able to maintain their form. Either water or a gentle denture cleaning solution may be used to store your dentures between cleanings.

To ensure that your dentures are in excellent condition when you put them back in your mouth in the morning, you should give them a thorough cleaning and a rinse.

Make sure to see your denture health specialist for checkups on a regular basis.

General advice as well as our most important dos and don’ts

Your dentures should never be forced

Always remember to be careful and to take your time to get a proper fit.

You should take your time with your new dentures since they may feel foreign to you at first. You should be careful and begin with meals that are easy to digest before moving on to more difficult dishes like steak. 

Take bites that are not too large, and be sure to chew your food thoroughly. Make an effort to chew with both sides of your mouth at the same time if you are able to.

Dentures should be handled with care, and more consideration should be given to them than you would to your teeth. While you are chewing, be sure to take little chunks and be careful not to damage your teeth.
