How Often Do You Need to Clean Removable Dentures?Removable dentures can improve your quality of life in various ways, including normal chewing and confidence in your smile.

Depending on your specific needs, our office can design a partial denture that is reliable, durable, and perfectly fitted.

Removable partial dentures may have natural-looking framework, or it may be metal with clasps. In some instances, however, a removable denture can be attached to your existing teeth with what are known as precision attachments. With all of these devices to trap food debris, you want to ensure that you clean your removable dentures thoroughly every day.

Proper Cleaning for Removable Dentures

First, make sure to take your dentist's recommendation for your denture cleaning tablets. Always stand over a sink of water or a soft surface like a folded towel when cleaning your denture, in case it slips out of your hands. Never use toothpaste, as it can be too abrasive for all parts of your removable denture.

Brush your denture every day to prevent buildup of plague and food deposits, and this will keep your denture from being permanently stained. Use a brush specifically designed for cleaning dentures, and always use a brush with soft bristles. Rinse well with running water, then apply denture cleaner and brush gently. Finally, keep your removable denture moist at all times to keep its shape, and soak it in your cleaning solution overnight each night.

Removable Denture Adjustments

Over time, you may have to get your partial denture adjusted. This is because your mouth naturally changes as you age, affecting the fit of your denture. Wearing an improperly fitting removable denture can cause your gums to recede, so It's important to contact our office if you feel you need to have the fit adjusted. In addition, an ill-fitting denture can result in sores and infections.
