The Ways to Clean and Care for Your Partial Dentures

Posted .

If you replace your missing teeth with a partial denture, then you need to do everything you can to keep your appliance in tip-top shape. Cleaning and caring for your partial denture regularly can help you replace your missing teeth the way you desire for a long period of time. So, to help you keep your appliance in top-notch condition, our dentist, Dr. Lupy D. Gonzalez, encourages you to do the following things:

-Rinse your partial after eating. This is an easy task. All you need to do is remove the denture and run it under warm (not hot) water. This is important because running it under hot water can warp the appliance. When handling the denture, make sure not to drop it.

-Brush your partial daily. To do so, use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a cleaning solution that does not have abrasives, like denture cleaner or soap. Brushing can help you clean your appliance and keep it in tip-top shape.

-Soak your partial overnight. It’s best to put your appliance in a cup of water or mild denture-cleaning solution. This can help it keep its shape. In the morning, don’t forget to rinse the denture before you put it in your mouth.
