There are always ways to avoid stained dentures or teeth. Knowing more about the ways you can clean your teeth and reduce the chances of staining can help you keep your teeth whiter and brighter. Many things that you don’t think about might be doing more damage than you think.
Here are some of the best tips that come from our office that you can use to your advantage to reduce those stains.
Tips for Avoiding Stained Dentures
Stop smoking if at all possible. The nicotine and tar that are found in cigars and cigarettes can cause the teeth to stain. Wine, grapes, strawberries, and other deep red staining products are common when considering staining. Drinking grape juice or wine through a straw is often recommended to reduce the staining.
Rinse and brush your teeth after eating anything. This is because the dentures can hold this bacteria and staining material on the outside of them. Leaving this material there can cause the area to stain deeper. Make sure to soak your dentures overnight. If you skip this process, you will find that they become dry and stained easier and quicker than if you soak them.
Always take care of them with the instructions we provide from our office. This will keep them in the best shape possible. If you have questions about staining or care, call our office and we can provide further information. All of these tips are not only great for dentures, but our dentists and hygienists also state that they are great tips for natural teeth to stay whiter and brighter, as well.
