How should I clean my dentures?

Dentures and partials in Topeka, KS are excellent ways to restore smile function and aesthetics. But if you’re new to dentures or are only just considering tooth replacement, you may wonder about care and upkeep.

Fortunately, dentures and partials are easy to care for.

First, we recommend soaking your denture overnight in a denture bath. You can add a cleaning tablet to help disinfect.

We also recommend a denture cleaning brush and denture paste to brush the prosthetic after meals. It’s essential only to use products marked safe for dentures. Traditional toothbrushes and fluoride treatments can damage your prosthetic.

Additionally, it’s essential to keep your gums clean to prevent infection. You can gently brush your gums with a soft-bristled toothbrush and rinse after meals.

Finally, we recommend periodically taking your denture to your dentist for professional cleaning. Professional denture cleaning may lift stains and brighten your smile.

If you notice any issues with your dentures, including cracks or loss of suction, it’s essential to contact a member of our team for guidance.
