Clean Dentures Help Maintain a Healthy Mouth
Oral Health and Oral Hygiene
The caring professionals at All Dental of Westborough want you to keep smiling! It is our goal to help make sure that our patients with dentures and partial dentures know everything they need to know about caring for their dentures and keeping up with good oral hygiene.
Our dental practice in Westborough is devoted to not only giving you the best possible care and treatment, but also to instructing individuals in how to best care for their own oral health.
Once your dentist fits you with a comfortable denture set or denture partials in our dental clinic in Westborough, you'll need to know a few tips for keeping them clean. This cleanliness is extremely important, because even though these are prosthetic teeth and not your natural teeth, trapped food particles and gummy plaque build-up can cause gum disease, infections and embarrassing mouth odor. So it is your responsibility to keep your dentures meticulously clean.
This can be accomplished in a number of ways.
First, be sure to brush your teeth and floss twice daily just as you should with natural teeth. This helps to remove any food particles from between teeth and in the gumline or plate. Use denture toothpaste to prevent abrasive scratching that can occur with regular toothpaste, and a soft brush.
Use an enzyme based or effervescent solution and submerge your dentures in a tub or ultra-sonic soaker. This helps remove plaque and germs and eliminate odor.
Let All Dental of Westborough help you keep your beautiful smile for many years to come.
