Taking care of your dentures is a relatively simple effort, and it can save you from expensive repairs or replacements in the future. Moreover, clean dentures are safe dentures; and you’ll want to keep your dentures sanitized to ensure oral health. Here’s how you ought to take care of your dentures and your mouth:
Brush & Clean Dentures
Keep your dentures clean by brushing them with an appropriate denture solution. You can clean your dentures after every meal by rinsing them, and we recommend brushing your dentures with a denture solution twice per day.
Soak Your Dentures Overnight
Soak your dentures in a denture cleaning solvent. Use a cleaning solution that is specific for dentures. Other chemicals may dissolve and ruin your dentures – and you don’t want to use caustic chemicals in your mouth.
Schedule Regular Denture & Oral Check-ups
Keep tabs on the integrity of your dentures. You will want to have your dentures looked at occasionally to ensure that they still fit your gumline properly. And oral checkups are always a good idea. Check your mouth health while you’re in the dentist’s office!
Clean Your Oral Cavity as well as Your Dentures
You’ll want to maintain cleanliness in your oral cavity as you begin using your dentures. You can brush your gums and mouth cavity lightly, and use a mouthwash.
Contact your local cosmetic dentist to schedule checkups. Remember, it is important to keep tabs on your oral health, and to have your dentist maintain the integrity of your dentures.
