Handle Your Dentures Carefully. Make sure not to bend or damage the clasps or the plastic when cleaning the dentures.
Remove and Rinse Dentures after Eating. After each meal, run water over your dentures in order to get rid of any loose particles and remove food debris. You can put a folded towel on the counter or inside the sink to make sure that dentures do not break in case you drop them.
Remove Them Before Bed and Soak Overnight. It’s good to give your mouth and your dentures a break every so often throughout the day. Taking them out before bed, or removing them for at least six hours a day is a good habit to practice. This also allows the tissues in the mouth to recover. And while they’re out, keep them soaking in warm water if they have metal clasps, or if not, then submerge them in a special denture cleanser to keep them away from bacteria.
Rinse Dentures before Putting them in Your Mouth. Make sure to rinse your dentures thoroughly after using a denture-soaking solution, as it could contain harmful chemicals that could cause pain, vomiting, and burns if swallowed.
Brush Your Dentures Daily. Just like you would with teeth, you must (thoroughly clean your dentures every day) make a habit of daily brushing and denture cleaning with a soft bristled brush. Use a soft denture brush, along with ADA-accepted denture cleaner. With a little warm water, gently brush them in circular motions, focusing on each area. It’s good to do this over a counter or table with a towel beneath to catch them if they happen to
slip and fall.
Don’t Use Sharp Objects. Avoid using anything abrasive or sharp along your dentures. Items like toothpicks or dental scrapers are not recommended to use on dentures since they can easily slip and damage your mouth tissue.
Avoid Abrasive Cleaning Materials. Avoid brushes with stiff bristles, harsh toothpaste, or strong cleansers, as these could damage your dentures.
Forget about Whitening Toothpastes. labelled as “whitening” often contain hydrogen peroxide, which has no effect on the colour of denture teeth.
Don’t Use Bleach-Containing Products. Any bleaching products could weaken dentures and alter their colour. Do not soak dentures with metal attachments or parts in chlorine solutions, as chlorine could corrode and tarnish the metal.
Avoid Hot Water. Hot or boiling water could warp your dentures,
use warm water for denture care instead.
Don’t Use Tugging Motions When Eating. It can take time to get used to your dentures, but it’s important to use them correctly as you learn how to eat with them. Avoid taking large bites of food, don’t use tugging motions as you bite, and avoid biting down on hard items with your front dentures to prevent damage and chipping.
Don’t Neglect Your Dentures. Your dentures are an important part of your day-to-day life, so the most important point in denture care is to take good care of them so they can serve you well for as long as possible. Don’t neglect them, or toss them about carelessly. Always be mindful and gentle when handling them, and keep them sanitized and clean to keep your mouth happy and health
