How to Clean Dentures

Posted .

Keeping your dentures clean will make them last longer and fit better. The staff at Rick Jackomis, DDS in Sterling, Virginia, has assembled this info to aid you to clean and take care of your dentures.

Dentures need to be cleaned frequently, so pick up a toothbrush if you don’t already have one. To keep the dentures clean, you’ll need to soak them in a cleanser each night; look for the varieties that are non-abrasive to limit wear on the dentures. While you might notice that there are a few denture adhesives available for buying, please do not purchase these before talking to Dr. Rick Jackomis. Adjustments to the denture may thwart the need for adhesives.

While dentures come in a whole host of different types, they can generally be categorized by the number of teeth they’ll be replacing: dentures can be categorized into complete and partial types. Complete dentures are created to replace all of the patient’s teeth, and this is regularly done when several teeth have already been lost and/or the brunt of remaining pearly whites are severely impaired. If a number of the patient’s pearly whites are healthy and in-place, partial false teeth can be utilized to fill the gap.
