Set of Dentures in Glass of Water

Like natural teeth, dentures attract plaque and buildup. While cavities won’t occur, bacteria can cause gum inflammation and infection, as well as a bad odor in your mouth. Properly cleaning your denture each day will help ensure that it stays looking it’s best and that your mouth remains healthy.

The Denture Cleaning Process

At a minimum, you’ll want to clean your appliance (and your mouth) thoroughly every night before you go to bed.

To properly clean your denture and your mouth you’ll need the following:

  • Denture Box
  • Denture Brush
  • Overnight Denture Cleaning Tablets
  • Regular Toothbrush
  • Toothpaste
  • Tongue Scraper
  • Mouthwash

The first thing that you will do is fill your box with some water and add a denture cleaning tablet. The tablet will dissolve and make a cleaning solution that your denture will soak in while you sleep.

Next, you’ll scrub your appliance with a denture brush and toothpaste. Thoroughly clean every part: the teeth, and the “gums”, on both the inside and the outside. Once that’s done, gently place your denture in the box and close the lid.

The next step is to clean your mouth. Brush any remaining teeth, your gums, and the roof of your mouth with a regular toothbrush and toothpaste. A tongue scraper is great to have and highly effective at cleaning germs off of your tongue. If you don’t have any teeth, you can use a soft washcloth to clean your gums.

The final step is to rinse your mouth with an alcohol-free mouthwash.

The office is very friendly and very professional. My dentist is Dr. Doug Yoon and on my very first visit he introduced me to the entire staff that would be assisting with my care, which made me feel confident that I had chosen the right practice. It has only gone uphill from there. I love that place!!
