When getting dentures it is important to understand the importance of cleaning them. Just like natural teeth your dentures will need to be cleaned on a regular basis. This is because just like natural teeth they can have bacteria and plaque grow on them which will damage the dentures over time.
Unlike natural teeth, to clean the dentures you will need to take them out of your mouth. You can buy special denture cleaner solution to clean the dentures in.
