Your dentures need to be treated just like normal teeth in order to keep them in good condition. This means following the same routine you would with your natural teeth. The American Dental Association as well as Dr. James Spivey recommends the following tips to help keep your dentures clean and in good condition:
Brush your dentures every day: Just like your natural teeth dentures need to be brushed daily to remove food particles that could stain or get caught in your teeth. You should also rinse your dentures prior to brushing to get off excess food particles. This will help when you go to brush them as well.
While you are brushing your dentures, you should also be sure to brush the inside of your mouth, including the inside of your cheeks, the roof of your mouth and tongue, this will help remove any food particles that may have been left behind as well.
After you have cleaned your dentures you should soak them in water overnight and keep them in a safe spot as well so they aren’t disturbed. This will help keep your dentures clean as well overnight. If you should use adhesive be sure to follow all directions to safely wear your dentures.
