How should I clean my dentures?

Keeping your dentures clean goes a long way to ensuring their longevity. Here are some tips for daily cleaning and care for your full or partial dentures in Birmingham.

Clean Your Dentures Daily

Just like brushing your teeth, your dentures should be cleaned and brushed daily. You can rinse them after meals and brush them at night with a soft, non-abrasive toothbrush. Discuss the correct type of denture cleaner to use with Dr. Cook.

Soak Your Dentures During the Night

Soaking your dentures in room temperature water or a denture cleanser while you sleep will help keep your dentures clean and fresh. However, don't ever use hot water to clean or soak your dentures, as it could cause them to warp.

Clean Your Mouth After Meals

Removing your dentures for rinsing or soaking is also an excellent time to clean your mouth. Use a soft toothbrush or gauze to remove any remaining food particles or adhesive from your mouth.

Contact your dentist if you notice any sores or lesions on your gums or soft tissues as it could indicate ill-fitting dentures.

Visit Your Birmingham Dentist Once a Year for Checkups

Even though you no longer have natural teeth, it's important to have Dr. Cook check your mouth and dentures yearly for proper fit and function.
