Taking care of your dentures is crucial for maintaining a healthy smile and overall oral health. Here are five expert tips to help you keep your dentures clean and your smile bright:

  1. Rinse Thoroughly: Before brushing, rinse your dentures under running water to remove food particles and debris. Handle them carefully to avoid damage, and never use hot water, as it can warp your dentures.
  2. Brush Regularly: Just like natural teeth, dentures need regular brushing to remove plaque and stains. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a denture cleaner recommended by your dentist at Archibald Dental Centre. Avoid abrasive materials and harsh cleaners that could damage your dentures.
  3. Don’t Forget Your Natural Teeth: Even with dentures, it’s essential to brush your natural teeth and gums daily. Gentle brushing helps prevent oral infections and maintains oral hygiene. If you experience gum sensitivity, consider using gauze or a softer brush.
  4. Store Properly: Keep your dentures moist when not in use by storing them in a denture-soaking solution or water overnight. Store them in a covered container to protect them from damage and bacteria buildup.
  5. Use Adhesives Carefully: If using denture adhesives, apply them sparingly and avoid using foreign objects or harsh chemicals to remove your dentures. Rinse your mouth with warm water or mouthwash to ease removal, ensuring the grooves that attach to your gums remain clean.

Proper care ensures that your dentures stay in good condition, providing you with a confident smile. For personalized advice on denture care or to schedule an appointment with our team at Archibald Dental Centre, contact us today.
