Do I Really Need to Clean My Dentures Daily?
Yes – even a healthy mouth harbours hundreds of bacterial species that can aggravate infection and cause oral inflammation, so keeping your dentures clean is essential for good oral hygiene.
Clean all of the denture surface every day, taking care to remove any adhesives, especially any parts that come into contact with your gums. To remove food debris, use a denture cream with a specially designed brush, then soak your dentures in a solution to keep them fresh. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions for use.
Same Day Teeth Patient
Conventional toothpaste isn’t suitable for cleaning dentures and may cause permanent damage. However, there are many specially formulated denture cleaners available. It’s essential to keep your dentures clean with the appropriate denture cleaners, and you should never use bleach or boiling water.Book a consultation
When to Wear your Dentures
We recommend leaving your dentures out at night. This allows your gum tissues to rest and receive stimulation from the tongue and saliva. You should also remove and brush your dentures daily.
Allowing dentures to dry out is not advised. They’re designed to function in a moist environment, so store dentures in either a glass of water or your preferred denture soak. If your dentures do dry out, soak them in a glass of water before re-insertion.Book a consultation
