Why Is It Important To Keep Dentures Clean?
One of the most common contributing factors that can result in tooth loss is poor oral hygiene. By not brushing our teeth and looking after them, bacteria can build up and over time can lead to tooth decay and eventually tooth loss in the most severe cases.
Replacement teeth need to be treated as if they were our natural teeth as bacteria can build up on them and can cause damage to them if left. Not only can it damage the dentures but it can also lead to bad breath.
As well as following a strict hygiene routine with your dentures, you can also use denture solution to leave your dentures in over night which will kill 99.9% of bacteria. If you would like advice on what you can use, please do not hesitate to ask us!
