To get the most out of your dentures, it’s essential to clean them appropriately. With proper cleaning and maintenance, dentures will last longer, look better, and offer better performance.
When cleaning dentures, you should carefully follow your dentist’s guidelines. Avoid washing your dentures with abrasive soaps or with hard-bristled toothbrushes to prevent damage.
Instead, we recommend using a soft-bristled brush with denture cleaner or non-abrasive soap to clean your dentures thoroughly once a day.
You should also soak your dentures daily. Most people choose to soak their dentures overnight using either clean water or denture solution. If you don't keep your dentures moist, they can dry out until they become brittle and prone to breaking.
We welcome any questions you have about caring for your dentures properly. Our friendly team of dental professionals at Brimhall Dentistry provides expert advice to patients with dentures. We would be happy to guide you through proper care techniques for your prosthetics.
