How to clean removable partial dentures in Azusa, CA?
Many patients in the area of Azusa, CA, who have partial dentures may be unsure as to the best ways to take care of them. Dr. Brianne Luu of Gentle Care Dentistry believes that with proper education, patients will understand how to clean their removable partial dentures to extend the longevity of their restorations.
How do I clean removable partial dentures?
Patients should brush their partial dentures every day, just as they do their own teeth. This helps prevent staining of the false teeth and removes food particles that might become stuck. We recommend the use of a specialized brush made especially for cleaning partial dentures, with bristles that are arranged to fit the natural shape and contours of dentures. Avoid hard-bristled brushes, which can cause damage. Mild hand soap or dish soap can be used to clean the dentures and should be applied on the denture with a towel beneath to protect the denture if it is accidentally dropped. Rinse the denture, brush with soap, and rinse again before inserting the dentures into a freshly cleaned mouth.
How do I prevent damage to my partial dentures?
Taking great care to protect your removable partial dentures will extend their lifespan and avoid costly repairs. Patients should avoid trying to repair or adjust their dentures themselves and instead should let their dentist make these changes. Brushing a denture over a towel will reduce the risk of breakage in the event the denture is dropped.
Should I remove dentures at night?
Brianne Luu highly recommends removing partial dentures at night and keeping them soaking in a special denture solution overnight. This not only keeps them moist but keeps them clean and offers a safe way to store them.

If there have been changes in fit and function of your dentures, you are strongly advised to contact Gentle Care Dentistry to schedule an appointment for necessary adjustments.
