What is the best way to clean dentures?

Dentures are an excellent, affordable tooth replacement option for many patients. With dentures, dentists can replace an entire arch of missing teeth or just a few missing teeth, making this tooth-replacement option versatile. Additionally, dentures offer a non-invasive choice for patients who don’t want a surgical procedure, which some tooth replacements, such as implants, require.

Cleaning Your Dentures

Another benefit of dentures is how easy they are to clean and maintain. Many dentures are removable, making cleaning easy. You can simply remove the dentures and use a soft-bristled brush to clean the dentures using a non-abrasive toothpaste or denture cleaner. 

Those with dentures should also take care to preserve the health of any remaining natural teeth and their gums, brushing and flossing as instructed by the dentist.

To keep dentures in good condition, it’s also essential to soak them regularly. Most denture wearers choose to soak their dentures overnight. You can soak the dentures in clean, cool water or a denture solution.
