How to Keep Your Complete Dentures in Tip-Top Shape

Posted .

It’s best to clean and care for your complete dentures regularly. This is important because doing everything you can to keep your appliance in top-notch condition can help you avoid warping, breaking, and damaging your dentures. It can also help you replace your missing teeth the way you want to for many years. So, our dentist, Dr. Parampal , encourages you to properly clean and care for your dentures by doing the following things:

-Rinse your dentures after eating. All you need to do is remove the appliance and run it under lukewarm water. Don’t rinse it with scalding hot water because it can melt the appliance. As you handle the dentures, place a towel in the sink so if you accidentally drop it, you decrease your chances of damaging it.

-Brush your dentures daily. You can do so with a soft-bristled toothbrush and non-abrasive denture cleaner. Scrub your appliance at least once a day to remove plaque, bacteria, food particles, and other harmful substances.

-Soak your dentures overnight. To do so, just place the appliance in a cup of water or in a cup of mild denture-cleaning solution. This can keep the appliance moist and can keep it from warping out of shape.
