Denture care: How do I clean dentures?

Cleaning dentures is a vital part of maintaining good oral hygiene. Here are some steps to follow:

  1. Remove your dentures from your mouth and rinse them with warm water to remove any loose food particles.

  2. Use a soft-bristled brush to scrub your dentures gently. Avoid using a regular toothbrush or abrasive cleaners, as they can damage the dentures.

  3. Use a denture cleaner or mild soap to clean your dentures. Follow the manufacturer's instructions and avoid using bleach or other harsh chemicals.

  4. Rinse your dentures thoroughly with warm water to remove any remaining cleaning solution.

  5. Soak your dentures in a denture cleaner or water overnight. This will help to remove any stains or bacteria that may have accumulated during the day.

  6. Rinse your dentures thoroughly with warm water before putting them back in your mouth.

It's important to clean your dentures daily to maintain good oral hygiene and prevent the build-up of bacteria that can lead to infections and bad breath.
