How to Clean Dentures

Clean all of the Denture surface every day, taking care to remove any denture adhesives on a daily basis, including any parts that come into contact with your gums. To remove food debris, use a denture cream with a specially designed denture brush, and then soak your dentures in a specialist solution to keep them fresh. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions for use.

Why do I need to clean my Dentures on a daily basis?

A normal and healthy oral cavity harbours hundreds of bacterial species that can aggravate infection and cause oral inflammation, so keeping your Dentures clean on a daily basis is essential for good oral hygiene.

Denture Cleaners

Conventional toothpastes are not suitable for cleaning dentures and may cause permanent damage your Dentures, but there are many Denture Cleaners available. It is very important to keep your dentures clean with the appropriate denture cleaners, and you should never use bleach or boiling water.

When to wear your Dentures

We do recommend that you leave your dentures out at night. This allows your gum tissues to rest and have normal stimulation by the tongue and saliva. You should also remove and brush your dentures daily.
