Caring for your Dentures
Cleaning your dentures
It is important to treat your dentures as you should treat your natural teeth. They must be kept clean as possible to prevent inflamed gums, bacterial and fungal infections, and further tooth loss.
What is the best way to clean my dentures?
The general rule is to brush your dentures thoroughly and only use a soaking solution weekly. You should always use a specially designed soft denture brush. Always clean your dentures over a bowl of water or a folded towel in case you drop them.
Which cleaner should I use?
There are many different denture cleaning products available direct from us, or at most grocery stores or chemists.
Look for one that contains active ingredients to break down the plaque, thereby removing the debris, as opposed to some cleaners that merely bleach the stains without removing them. Always ensure you follow the manufacturers instructions.
