Our Guide To Taking Care Of Your Dentures

Compared to your grandparent’s generation, it’s fair to say that the world of dentures is completely different today than it was back then! Dentures are no longer something that you have to worry about having; not only do they look completely natural and normal, but they also are comfortable to wear and don’t cause the patient any kinds of friction or tightness problems as they might have done in the past.

Here at The Denture Care Group, the one thing we are confident of is that as long as you take good care of your dentures, you will rarely have a problem with them. Without further ado, here are some top tips for how to take care of your dentures to avoid denture repairs in Caloundra.

Remove and Rinse Your Dentures

Always remove and rinse your dentures after the main meal of the day. This will help to
keep them a tight fit in your mouth, along with getting rid of any food and debris that
might have made its way underneath the plate during chewing.

Keep Your Mouth Clean

Along with cleaning the dentures, also clean your mouth at this time too. A good rinse
and spit with some mouthwash provides the best base to pop them back in and have
them be free from bacteria and debris.

Brush Your Dentures

Get into the habit of brushing your dentures just like they were your real teeth. They
will still benefit from this brushing even if they don’t necessarily react in the same way
with regards to things like plaque.

Soak Your Dentures

You don’t need your dentures in your mouth overnight, so to keep them in the best
condition for as long as possible you should get into the habit of soaking them in a
specialized denture-soaking solution overnight. This will provide more of a deep clean
compared to quick washing after eating, therefore giving you a double protection
against things like bacteria.

Handle Your Dentures With Care

Remember to always handle them with care when they are out of your mouth, they are
precious accessories!
