Dentures in Hemet, CA are a practical and affordable option for tooth replacement, but you may be wondering how to best care for these prosthetics.
We recommend soaking your dentures or partials in a denture bath at least once daily to clear bacteria away from the prosthetic.
You may also choose to soak them overnight. Some patients pick up denture tablets from their local drugstore to add to these soaks. But make sure the water is always at room temperature.
Another option for cleaning dentures and partials is a denture brush and denture paste. Be sure to use products meant for dentures. Traditional toothpaste can be too abrasive.
You can also take your dentures to the dentist's office for professional cleaning, usually once or twice per year.
Ideally, you can do all of the above to keep your dentures in top shape and protect your gum health. Gum disease can make it difficult or impossible to continue wearing your dentures, and additional tooth loss can mean you'll need a new partial.
