Here are five tips shared by our Caldwell dentist for keeping your dentures clean and in good shape:
1. Thoroughly Rinse.
Before you brush, make sure to rinse your dentures with water to ensure any food or any other small particles are all washed down the drain. Your dentures are fragile, so you must be extra careful when handling them. Do not rinse your dentures with hot or boiling water as it can damage them.
2. Brush Your Dentures
In addition to your actual teeth, your dentures also need to be brushed. You should carefully brush your dentures with a gentle toothpaste and a soft bristled toothbrush. We advise you not to use whitening toothpaste or harsh cleaning materials on them.
It is important to remember to never use cleaning solutions while your dentures are in your mouth. If you have any questions, be sure to talk to our Caldwell ID dental team for advice about the right way to clean your dentures. Contact our dental office in Caldwell, ID to schedule an appointment.
