How do I look after my dentures?
The general rule to follow is to brush, soak and brush again. Always clean your dentures over a clean surface, in case you drop it. Use an effervescent (fizzy) denture cleaner, as this will help to remove stubborn stains and will leave your dentures feeling clean, ensure you follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
When brushing, it is advised you use a small amount of toothpaste on a small to medium sized toothbrush. Ensure you clean all the surfaces on the dentures, including the surface that fits against your gums, this is very important if you choose to use a denture fixative. If you notice a build-up of plaque or slight discolouration, please bring your dentures in for a professional clean by your dental team.
