1. Dentures should be cleaned regularly. Your dentures require proper and adequate care, just like your natural teeth. Dentures should be cleaned at least twice a day to prevent bacterial and fungal infections that lead to inflammation and pain. This routine can help you save any remaining natural teeth and keep your dentures looking great!

2. Cleaning your dentures the proper way can prevent damage. Carefully remove any food or debris by gently brushing dentures under warm running water. Never use hot water for cleaning as this can cause dentures to warp and fit poorly. Use appropriate denture cleaners when brushing and remember to rinse thoroughly.

3. Your lifestyle affects your dentures. Dentures can be affected by your habits and the foods you eat. Drinking coffee, tea and red wine can stain your teeth over time. Smoking can also lead to stains and unpleasant odours in your dentures. 

4. Some products can cause irreversible damage to your dentures. Toothpaste and bleaching products can create micro-scratches for bacteria to stick to and lead to staining. Avoid using these products to clean your dentures. To prevent damage to softliners and metal clasps, use cleaning products that are specifically formulated for these types of materials. 

5. Recommended routine for denture care during the night. It is important to remove your dentures and soak them in a container with suitable denture cleanser before going to sleep. Keeping them in your mouth during the night can cause inflammation leading to discomfort, pain, and infection.

  1. Last week, I got dentures fitted at the dentist Manhattan Beach. The procedure wasn’t too long and the professionals and staffs made everything pleasant. It’s a new experience for me, so I’m glad to have read your article. Will certainly follow these tips you have listed to maintain my dentures.

  2. Thank you so much for sharing this useful information, it's very helpful. I would like to add that dentures are used to replace lost or missing teeth. Quite often you find that people who have lost all their teeth also lose a lot of confidence on their appearance and smile, not to mention how difficult it is to process food without any teeth. Dentures can bring back a lovely smile and the confidence that comes with it. Whether its full dentures or partial ones, they can have a really positive impact on a person’s quality of life and self-esteem. In the past, the artificial teeth that make up dentures were made out of porcelain or plastic, but more modern dentures are generally made out of a hard resin.
