For today’s blog, we would like to share three tips about caring for your dentures.
- The first thing you want to remember is that your dentures are fragile and if you accidentally drop them, they can break. You also don’t want them to dry out, as this can cause them to warp, so when you aren’t wearing them, keep them in warm or cold water (never hot) or a cleansing solution for dentures.
- You will want to brush your dentures so that they don’t become stained, and to keep them clear from plaque and food debris. Before your put your dentures in for the day, use a soft-bristled toothbrush to brush your gums, tongue, cheeks and roof of your mouth. This will remove dental plaque and help prevent bad breath.
- If you use adhesives with your dentures, be sure to follow the directions for their use exactly. Our dentist can recommend the best cleaners and adhesives to use, and of course, always use a product that carries the ADA Seal of Acceptance to ensure that they are both safe and effective.
