Your new dentures are allowing you to eat and speak properly and comfortably once again. They have also restored the beauty of your smile. To enjoy the benefits of your dentures long term, it is imperative that you take good care of them. Dr. Michael O'Neill and our team are happy to explain the importance of cleaning your dentures daily as well as to instruct you on cleaning your dentures.
How to Clean Dentures
In addition to brushing your gums and tongue every day, it is also very important to clean your dentures every day. Brush your dentures thoroughly every day to remove plaque and food. Do not use a brush with hard bristles, as this can harm your dentures. In addition, do not clean your dentures in hot water, as this can warp them. Make sure that you rinse your dentures very well after you brush them. Use a dentures deep-cleaning solution periodically to soak off food particles from your dentures.
