Principles of denture brushing and important points of its care

Granular dentures need proper care to preserve, remove stains and beauty, so if you use these teeth, you need to know how to clean them properly.

Brush your teeth after eating

Pour water on the dentures to remove food debris and other particles, and you can place a towel on the counter or dishwasher to prevent it from breaking.

Clean your mouth after removing your teeth

Use a soft toothbrush to clean the tongue and roof of the mouth.

Brush at least once a day

Brush your teeth every day and do it gently. Moisten them and clean them with a rough, abrasive plastic brush to remove food, plaque, and other debris.

 If you use dentures, clean the gum grooves to remove any remaining food.

Use a suitable toothbrush.

To brush, choose a toothbrush that washes thoroughly between your teeth and the curved and angled parts of the denture so that no food particles remain between the teeth.

At night, put your dentures in water.

Most dentures need to stay moist to stay in shape. Please soak them overnight in mild water or toothpaste and talk to your dentist about proper dental care.

Follow the detergent manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning and soaking. The container you choose for this is significant because it must be such that the teeth are completely immersed in water.

Use the right detergent for your dentures.

Gels and toothpaste for cleaning dentures are available in pharmacies, with the help of which you can clean your teeth well and prevent unpleasant odors.

Brush while brushing dentures

After using toothpaste and detergent, it is better to use a toothbrush when rinsing the teeth so that no detergent particles remain between the teeth.

Do not forget to check your teeth.

Dentists recommend that you see your doctor several times to examine and clean your teeth. If your denture is loose, replace it immediately because loosening can cause irritation, sores, and infection.

Abrasive cleaners

Avoid hard toothbrushes, strong cleaners, and hard toothpaste, as these materials are very abrasive and may damage your teeth.

Whitening toothpaste

Toothpaste that is advertised as whitening contains oxygenated water, which reduces the color of dentures.

Products containing bleach

Please do not use any bleach, as it weakens the prosthesis and changes its color. Do not place prostheses in chlorine solutions, as this will corrode the metal.
