How Do You Take Care Of Partial Dentures?
Partial dentures need to be cleaned on a regular basis, just like your natural teeth would need, and for that matter, any other denture.
Bacteria will build up on dentures and can overtime damage them if not cleaned. They can also start to make your nice looking teeth, start to look grubby, just like natural teeth.
Dentures are very delicate and can be broken easily if dropped. Especially when handling your dentures with water, it can start to make them slippy and accidents can happen. It is always best to preempt any accidents by placing a soft towel in the sink basin. This will act as a soft cushion and protect your dentures if dropped.
It is also important to use a soft brush to clean them or a special denture brush. Brushing too vigorously or with a hard bristle brush, can also damage your dentures, so it is important to take care.
You can use either warm water, soap or special denture paste to clean them with. There is special denture cleaner that you can also leave to soak your dentures in.
