5 Tips for Denture Wearers | Dr. Juned Mohammed

Caring for your natural teeth and dentures is essential for maintaining a healthy smile. Here are five valuable tips to keep your dentures clean and ensure your oral health remains in top condition.

  1. Thorough Rinsing:
    Before brushing, rinse your dentures thoroughly under water to remove food particles and debris. Handle them with care to prevent damage, and avoid using hot water, as it can warp the denture material.
  2. Proper Cleaning:
    Treat your dentures to a gentle yet effective cleaning, just like you would with your natural teeth. Remove your dentures and brush them carefully with a soft toothbrush. Avoid harsh cleaning agents and consult with Dr. Juned Mohammed at Evolve Dentistry to determine the best cleaning solution for your dentures.
  3. Don’t Neglect Your Gums:
    While focusing on your dentures, don’t forget to care for your gums. Brush them gently to maintain gum health and reduce the risk of oral infections. If your toothbrush feels too harsh, consider using gauze or seeking recommendations from our team at Evolve Dentistry.
  4. Proper Storage:
    When not in use, keep your dentures covered in a container overnight. Consider using a denture-soaking solution to maintain their cleanliness and shape. If you have any concerns about storing your dentures, reach out to us for guidance.
  5. Handle Adhesives with Care:
    If you use adhesive to secure your dentures, be cautious when removing them. Swish warm water or mouthwash around your mouth to ease removal, but never use abrasive tools or cleaning solutions. Ensure the grooves attaching to your gums remain clean and adhesive-free.

By following these tips and maintaining a diligent denture care routine, you can enjoy a lasting smile and optimal oral health.
