At the All Dental Center dental clinic in Watertown we want you to know how to take care of your dentures and the best ways to keep them clean. Just as with your natural teeth, you need to brush and floss your dentures regularly, and rinse them clean. It's okay to use mild soap or dishwashing liquid for brushing, but regular toothpaste may contain abrasives that will scratch your dentures or wear them down, so choose toothpaste made specifically for dentures, and also choose a soft-bristled toothbrush.
It's also great to soak your dentures daily in either an effervescent cleansing solution or in an ultra-sonic cleansing tub. This will help deodorize them and prevent stains and discoloration. Never use bleach to soak your dentures trying to whiten them, because you'll also discolor the pink dental plate. Keeping your dentures clean helps you maintain your good oral health, and keeps you feeling confident enough to eat what you want and continue smiling.
