Denture Maintenance

Proper care is important for the condition of your dentures as well as the health of your mouth. Here are some tips from your Denver dentist for cleaning and proper care for your dentures:

Brush and rinse dentures every day – Make sure that you use a soft bristle brush for cleaning your dentures and without toothpaste. Toothpaste is abrasive and creates tiny scratches where plaque can hide. Make sure to rinse them in-between brushings after meals as well.

Clean dentures with the correct cleaner – Hand soap and mild dishwashing liquid can be used to clean your dentures. However, avoid household cleaners and bleaches as they can whiten the pink part of the dentures or can be too abrasive.

When not wearing your dentures, take good care of them – Dentures need to be kept constantly moist. Make sure that when you’re not wearing them to put them in a denture cleanser soaking solution or in water. This is to make sure that they don’t dry out or lose their shape. Also, ensure that they are never put in hot water because it can warp them.
