5 Tips for Denture Wearers | Linden MI Dentist

Caring for your natural teeth and dentures is essential for maintaining a healthy smile. Here are five tips to keep your dentures clean and your oral health in top shape.

  1. Thoroughly Rinse:
    Before brushing, rinse your dentures under water to remove food particles and debris. Avoid using hot water, as it can damage the dentures.
  2. Proper Cleaning:
    Just like your natural teeth, dentures need regular cleaning. Remove them and brush gently using a soft toothbrush. Avoid using harsh cleaning materials or whitening toothpaste, as they can cause damage. Consult with our Linden MI dentist for recommended denture cleaners.
  3. Don’t Forget to Brush:
    Maintain good oral hygiene by brushing your gums and any remaining natural teeth. Use a soft toothbrush or gauze to clean gently, reducing the risk of oral infections. Visit us if you experience gum pain for personalized recommendations.
  4. Store Them Covered:
    Store your dentures in a covered container filled with a denture-soaking solution overnight. If unavailable, water can be used as a substitute to maintain moisture and shape. Feel free to reach out with any denture storage inquiries.
  5. Adhesive Care:
    Removing dentures with adhesive can sometimes be challenging. Rinse your mouth with warm water or mouthwash to ease removal, avoiding the use of harsh solutions or tools. Ensure the grooves attaching to your gums are clean and adhesive-free.
