bove all things, keep your denture clean. The brushes and preparations used for cleaning teeth are not satisfactory for dentures. Some are ineffective – others ruin them.
Never use scouring powders. They may contain caustic alkalis, acid or grit. These may dissolve the denture material or roughen the surface so that food particles and stains cling to it. This makes a denture unsanitary and unsightly, and causes it to have an unpleasant odor.
Your denture, if kept absolutely clean, will fit better and feel much more comfortable. Give your denture the same care and attention you would give your natural teeth.
Always hold a denture over water when cleaning it. If you drop it, the water will cushion the fall and prevent breakage.
There are two effective ways for cleaning your denture. One is using a brush and cream, specifically designed for dentures. If you prefer try a solution type cleanser. After soaking for a few minutes in a solution, your denture will come out fresh and clean.
Remember – that your denturist knows more about your denture than anyone else. Go to him if you having any trouble. Even if it feels fine, see him regularly for a complete check up.
