Cleaning Your Dentures

It’s essential to take just as much care with your new dentures as you would your own teeth, and a good hygiene regime is crucial.

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.

Routine Clean

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.

Denture Cleaners

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.

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.

At Night

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.

Still Wondering if Direct Denture Care
is Right for You?

Hear what some of our satisfied clients have to say:

Made me feel at ease from the start. The experience is always good and painless, yep even after a filling. Wish this had always been how I viewed dentists then maybe I wouldn't have been so scared for years.
A highly professional team who treated me with care and sensitivity. Lee and Eduard talked me through my options so I could make an informed choice. Treatment was pain free. I have my smile back.
Most welcoming and friendly dentist I have ever known. My fiance put off dental work for years being scared of going to the dentist and we cant say anything bad about Lee and his team. Everyone here is very friendly
Not all dental practices are created equal. This practice is amazing! Fantastic friendly team. How many dental practices let you have a nice lie down after surgery & putting on Christmas music for you? Yes it is now finally possible to say "I love going to the dentist"
Unfortunately, I broke my plate while staying with family in Waterlooville this weekend. Your practice was recommended by my Sister-in-Law's dentist. I was seen on Saturday morning and the plate was fixed straight away. I was so pleased as it was my two front teeth so I was unable to smile. Thank you so much for everything.
