5 Tips for Denture Wearers | Dentist in Vestavia Hills

Caring for your natural teeth and dentures is essential for maintaining a healthy smile. At Vestavia Smiles, we understand the importance of proper oral care. Here are five tips to keep your dentures clean and your smile radiant:

  1. Rinse Thoroughly:
    Before brushing, rinse your dentures under running water to remove food particles. Handle them with care and avoid hot water, as it can damage the dentures.
  2. Clean Your Dentures:
    Just like natural teeth, dentures need regular cleaning. Use a soft toothbrush and avoid harsh cleaning solutions. Consult our dentist for the right cleaner to preserve your dentures’ quality.
  3. Don’t Forget to Brush Your Teeth:
    Even with dentures, oral hygiene is crucial. Gently brush your gums to prevent oral infections. If your toothbrush feels too harsh, consider using gauze or seek recommendations from our dental team.
  4. Keep Them Covered:
    Store your dentures in a covered container overnight to maintain their moisture and shape. Use a denture-soaking solution or water to keep them clean. For storage tips and guidance, feel free to reach out to us.
  5. Care with Adhesives:
    Removing dentures with adhesives can be challenging. Swish warm water or mouthwash to ease removal, avoiding harsh chemicals. Ensure the grooves attaching to your gums are clean and adhesive-free.

With proper care, your dentures will provide you with a beautiful smile for years to come. If you have any questions or concerns about denture care, don’t hesitate to contact Vestavia Smiles. Our experienced dental team in Vestavia Hills is here to assist you.
