Adjusting to anything new in life can be challenging. Dentures are the same way. When it comes to caring for your dentures it’s important to keep them clean and cared for properly so the lifespan of your dentures is not cut short.

Luckily, it’s not difficult to care for dentures. Much like your regular teeth, dentures will need cared for too. That is why our team has come up with four steps you can use to clean your dentures properly. The four steps include:

1. Rinse the dentures: Begin the cleaning process by rinsing your dentures before brushing. This will remove any particles or debris in your appliance.
2. Brush the dentures: Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and brush your dentures gently.
3. Brush your oral cavity: Brush your gums, cheeks, and tongue gently to remove any plaque or bacteria that resides in your mouth.
4. Soak your dentures: When you’re not wearing your dentures, be sure to soak them in water or denture cleaner to prevent them from drying out and warping.
