Cleaning & Maintenance of Dentures

Maintaining good personal hygiene is essential if you want to be at the top of your game. Just like you’d look after your natural teeth – brushing, flossing, and seeing the dentist – your dentures also need cleaning and care. However, dentures are a little different from natural teeth. Even though you have to battle the same problems like tartar and stains, the way you’ll clean your dentures will be different. We’re here to show you some good denture hygiene habits and soon they’ll become as second nature as brushing your teeth. Learn more about how to clean dentures the right way and give them a long, happy life.

Keeping Your Dentures Happy and Clean

Getting new dentures takes time to get used to, and you may feel it will take time to build your confidence back afterwards. The good news is that with getting your denture hygiene on point, clean and sound dentures can help you build that confidence. You’ll start to develop good habits, and eliminate the bad ones, like leaving your dentures in overnight, which is a no-no in our book. So, don’t forget to take your dentures out before bed!

However, over time your dentures will need maintenance and care, and like anything in life it’s good to plan ahead. For example, you may want to know what costs you can expect to get dentures repaired or relined. No matter your denture query or concern, we’re here to help you get used to a life with dentures so it’ll become second nature for you.
