Clean Your Dentures Every Day
Just because you no longer have natural teeth doesn’t mean you should care any less about oral hygiene. You still need to keep your dentures clean just like natural teeth. Failure to keep your dentures clean can result in bacteria and plaque buildup. This can cause staining and unpleasant odors in your mouth.
To keep your dentures clean, we recommend removing your denture before going to bed and letting them soak in a denture solution. When you wake up in the morning, use a soft brush and gently clean your dentures to remove all plaque and bacteria.
If you don’t keep your dentures clean, the bacteria can lead to oral infections which can change the shape of your jaw. When your jaw changes in shape, your dentures will no longer fit and require replacement.
