Why Do People Often Put a Towel In the Sink

Why Do People Often Put a Towel In the SinkTaking good care of dentures is very important. It helps them stay perfect and function effectively. One way of caring for dentures is by soaking them overnight to get rid of all bacteria. You should then rinse them before reinserting them in your mouth. While doing that, most denture wearers put a towel in the sink before taking out their dentures. This is very important for denture safety.

Handling Dentures Cautiously

People put a towel in the sink before taking out their dentures to prevent breakage in case they accidentally drop them. Dentures are made of delicate material that can easily crack when dropped on a hard floor. Therefore, it is a good idea to put a towel in the sink when removing them. This safety precaution is highly recommended for aged denture wearers that could have problems handling dentures.

While handling dentures cautiously is vital, cleaning them is very important. You need to brush your dentures at least once daily. To do so, you should remove them gently from your mouth before cleaning. Soak them overnight in a solution, then brush them in the morning. When brushing, you can use a soft-bristled brush and a non-abrasive denture cleanser. This will help remove plaque, food particles, and deposits.

When using a denture adhesive, you should thoroughly clean the grooves fitting against your gums. This will help remove the remaining adhesive. You are warned against using denture adhesives inside the mouth. This is because they are highly acidic and could damage your gum tissues. Another important factor you should put in mind when caring for dentures is avoiding hard foods. Dentures could easily break when you use them on hard foods. This is why you should stick to soft foods, especially during the first few weeks. Schedule a consultative appointment with us for more information on handling dentures cautiously.
