Congratulations on your new dentures! Whether this is your first set or you’re upgrading from an old pair, you’re probably wondering how to best take care of them. In this blog post, we’ll give you some tips on how to keep your dentures clean and in good shape.
Caring for Your Dentures
Dentures need to be cleaned daily to remove plaque and bacteria. You should brush them with a soft-bristled toothbrush and nonabrasive toothpaste. Be sure to brush all surfaces of the denture, including the inside surfaces that fit against your gums. You can also soak your dentures overnight in a cleaning solution recommended by your dentist.
It’s important to handle your dentures with care. Be careful not to drop them, and avoid chewing hard foods like ice or hard candy, which can break them. When you’re not wearing them, store them in a safe place where they won’t get damaged.
See Your Dentist Regularly
Even though chrome frameworks are not natural teeth, you still need to see your dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings. At these appointments, your dentist will check the fit of your dentures and make any necessary adjustments. They will also clean your dentures and check for any signs of wear and tear.
