5 Tips for Denture Wearers | Dr. Michael Haimanot

Caring for your natural teeth is vital, but so is maintaining your dentures for a healthy smile. Cleaning dentures may seem like an extra task, but with proper care, they can stay clean and keep your smile bright. Here are five tips from 306 Dental to help you keep your dentures clean and your smile healthy:

1. Rinse Thoroughly
Before brushing, rinse your dentures under water to wash away food particles and debris. Handle them carefully to avoid damage. Avoid using hot water, as it may warp your dentures.

2. Clean Your Dentures
Just like natural teeth, dentures need regular brushing. Use a soft toothbrush and denture cleaner recommended by our dentist. Avoid harsh cleaners like bleach, as they can damage your dentures. Never use cleaning solutions while wearing your dentures.

3. Don’t Forget Your Gums
Even without natural teeth, it’s essential to clean your gums to prevent oral infections. Gently brush your gums with a soft toothbrush or use gauze if your gums are sensitive. Visit us if you experience gum pain for personalized recommendations.

4. Keep Them Covered
Store your dentures in a covered container overnight, using a denture-soaking solution or water to keep them moist. Proper storage helps retain their shape and prevents drying out. Consult us for advice on denture storage if needed.

5. Handle Adhesives with Care
Removing dentures with adhesives can be tricky. Rinse your mouth with warm water or mouthwash to ease removal. Never use sharp objects or cleaning solutions to remove dentures, and ensure the grooves are clean to prevent adhesive buildup.

With proper care, your dentures will give you a confident smile for years to come. Stay diligent in cleaning them regularly. If you have any concerns or questions about denture care, reach out to 306 Dental. Our team is here to assist you and provide tailored solutions for your denture needs.
