How Denture Cleansers Keep Your Mouth HealthierPartial or full dentures require regular and thorough cleaning to keep them free from bacteria and stains. Cleaning your dentures using denture cleansers not only maintains them in good shape but also keeps your mouth healthier. Routine cleaning of dentures comprises regular brushing and soaking of the dentures using specific brands of denture cleansers.

Soaking Your Denture

If you wear dentures, you will need to remove them regularly and soak them in denture cleansers to maintain good oral hygiene. Soaking dentures in a cleanser removes stains, bacteria, and plaque. Removing stains from your dentures is necessary to maintain their color for an aesthetic smile. Soaking it in a denture cleanser removes bad smell by killing the odor-causing bacteria. Thus, if you struggle with bad odor, investing in cleansers tough on the odor is vital. Also, by keeping your dentures free of bad smell, you will be able to maintain an overall fresh oral breath. If you struggle with plaque on natural teeth, soaking your denture in cleansers will eliminate the plaque. Plaque removing cleansers break down the plaque overnight from the denture surface and between the dentures, leaving it clean and smooth.

Cleaning Dentures

After soaking your dentures, you should inspect the denture's inside and brush off any remaining particles to complete the denture cleaning. Like natural teeth, dentures require regular brushing at least once a day using a soft-bristled brush and denture cleanser to remove leftover debris. This cleanser is nonabrasive compared to the ordinary toothpaste and will not damage the dentures. You can then rinse off the solution from the denture before wearing it again. Lastly, before putting your dentures back to your mouth, complete your cleaning by brushing your gums with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoridated toothpaste for a healthy mouth.
