Keep your mouth healthy and fresh with clean dentures. Always soak your dentures overnight. Dentures can easily dry out and crack if they are left lying around. Your dentures should always be soaked in room temperature water or an approved denture cleansing solution. For more helpful tips and treatment tactics for your dentures, read the following:

When and how do you clean dentures?
– Cleaning your dentures should be done every day. After eating, you should remove your dentures to wash and brush them with nonabrasive denture cleansers or water. Always wash and clean your mouth and your dentures before inserting them back into your mouth.

What is the durability on a set of dentures?
– With correct care and maintenance, dentures can provide a lifetime of lasting benefits.

Do dentures have any health benefits?
– Dentures can improve eating and speaking habits hampered by missing teeth. They also enhance the look and feel of your smile. Aesthetic benefits of dentures include a more youthful look in your face and jawline, improved self-esteem, and with modern dentures, a more natural appearance that looks and acts like usual teeth.

What types of products should be used to clean dentures?
– Always use a denture cleanser that is dentist-approved or fresh water. Never use abrasive toothpaste, hot water, teeth whitening agents, products that contain bleach, or any other product that can be hazardous to dentures.
