5 Tips for Denture Wearers | Dr. Michael Haimanot

Maintaining your oral health is crucial, whether you have natural teeth or dentures. At 306 Dental, under the expert care of Dr. Michael Haimanot, we understand the importance of a clean smile. Here are five effective tips to keep your dentures clean and your smile healthy:

  1. Thorough Rinsing:
    Before brushing, thoroughly rinse your dentures under running water to remove food particles and debris. Handle them with care to avoid damage, and steer clear of hot water, as it may harm the dentures.
  2. Gentle Cleaning:
    Just like natural teeth, dentures require regular brushing. However, never use cleaning solutions while wearing them. Instead, remove your dentures and gently brush them using a soft toothbrush. Avoid abrasive materials such as whitening toothpaste or bleach, and consult with our dentist for suitable cleaning solutions tailored to your dentures.
  3. Oral Hygiene:
    Don’t forget to care for your gums and remaining natural teeth. Brush them gently to reduce the risk of oral infections. If brushing feels uncomfortable, consider using gauze. If you experience gum pain, don’t hesitate to reach out to us for recommendations.
  4. Proper Storage:
    When removing your dentures at night, store them in a covered container filled with a denture-soaking solution or water to maintain their shape and cleanliness. If you have any questions about storing your dentures, our team is here to assist you.
  5. Adhesive Awareness:
    Removing dentures with adhesive can sometimes be challenging. Swish warm water or mouthwash around your mouth for easier removal, but avoid using sharp objects or cleaning solutions. Ensure the grooves of your dentures are clean and adhesive-free for a comfortable fit.

With proper care, your dentures will continue to provide you with a confident smile. If you have any concerns or questions about denture care, don’t hesitate to contact 306 Dental. We’re dedicated to finding personalized solutions to meet your needs.
