How do I clean my dentures?

Your dentures lifespan will depend on regular maintenance that keeps them clean and free from accumulations. In addition, you will use your dentures when you eat to be exposed to food debris. In Kingsport, TN, regular removal of these particles will ensure your dentures look and smell fresh.

What You Should Do Daily for Denture Care

When you take out your dentures, rinse them with warm, clear water and brush them with a soft-bristle toothbrush and non-abrasive denture cleaner. Be especially careful to get all food particles dislodged. Then, you’ll rinse your dentures a second time to wash everything away. We recommend you store your clean dentures in a safe place, like their case, when not wearing them.

What You Should Do Periodically

Even where you keep a persistent daily routine, we recommend that you perform a deep cleaning once or twice a month. You should use a soaking solution made from an effervescent tablet product that is safe for dentures. The oxidating action from this cleaner should rid any excess build-up on your dentures but rinse them well afterward as the deep cleaning agents may irritate your gums.
