5 Tips for Denture Wearers | Dentist in 19425

Caring for your natural teeth is crucial for maintaining a healthy smile. Whether you’re caring for your teeth or dentures, proper maintenance is essential. Here are five tips to keep your dentures clean and maintain a healthy smile:

  1. Rinse Thoroughly:
    Before brushing, rinse your dentures under water to remove food particles. Be gentle, as dentures can be fragile. Avoid using hot water, as it may damage them.
  2. Clean Your Dentures:
    Just like your natural teeth, dentures require regular cleaning. Remove them and gently brush them with a soft toothbrush. Avoid using harsh cleaners or whitening toothpaste, as they can damage dentures. If unsure, consult our dentist for the right cleaner.
  3. Don’t Forget to Brush Your Teeth:
    Even if you have dentures, it’s important to brush your gums and any remaining teeth. This helps prevent oral infections. Use a soft toothbrush or gauze to clean your gums gently.
  4. Keep Them Covered:
    Store your dentures in a covered container overnight to keep them moist. You can use a denture-soaking solution or water. If you have questions about proper storage, don’t hesitate to ask us.
  5. Care with Adhesives:
    If you use adhesives, be careful when removing your dentures. Swish warm water or mouthwash around your mouth to loosen them. Never use foreign objects or cleaning solutions to remove dentures.
