Cleaning your dentures is important for their health & longevity along with yours.
You should clean your dentures every day to mitigate plaque build-up.
Simply use a soft toothbrush with water and soap – or denture paste – over a sink to clean it.
On top of this, you should give them a deep rinse using effervescent tablets every now and then as well.
Don’t forget to brush your tongue, palate, and gums morning and night as well before you put your dentures back in.
If there is a major build-up of plaque, then you should dip your dentures into a glass full of water with a small amount of vinegar.
You should avoid using regular toothpaste on your dentures as the chemicals contained within them are not meant to be used on such prosthetics.
As a result, this can damage the dentures. If your dentures are damaged or break, then do not attempt to repair them yourself give your local dentist a call asap.
