How often should I clean my dentures?

Always clean your dentures over a bowl of water or a folded towel to avoid dropping them. To clean your dentures, the general rule is: brush and soak your dentures every day. Brush your dentures first with denture brush to help remove any bits of food. Use a non-abrasive and special denture cleaner, not regular toothpaste. Be careful not to scrub too hard as this may damage your dentures. Make sure you brush all the surfaces of the dentures, including the surface that fits against your gums. Soak your dentures every day in a denture-cleaning solution. This will help remove any plaque and stubborn stains that are left. It will also help to disinfect your dentures, leaving them feeling fresher. You should also clean your dentures every night, before going to bed. Ideally you should leave them to soak overnight in water with denture solution.

What Should I Use To Clean My Dentures?

You should use a toothbrush or ideally a denture brush to clean off food debris. You can do this without any special products by using water. After that, you can place your dentures in denture solution for various time durations. The longer you keep your dentures in denture solution, the cleaner your dentures will be. You should always keep your dentures in the solution for at least 15-30 minutes. Most of our patients are happy with Novadent solution that we offer which provides for deep cleaning of dentures on implants and soft liner. Each Novadent sachet contains a cleansing solution specially formulated to remain active for 7 days. The best denture cleaning will be achieved at our clinic or with use of a high quality ultrasonic cleaner. Ultrasonic cleaner is one of the best ways to guarantee that you get your dentures are completely clean.

What Should I Avoid When Cleaning Dentures?

It is important not to use any type of bleaching product to clean your dentures. Bleaching can lead to weakening of the dentures as well as make them prone to staining. Also, do not use very hot water to soak your dentures. Again, it can weaken the dentures over time causing them to break.
