Dentures offer patients without a full set of teeth a great way to restore the function of their mouth. However, it’s a common misconception that dentures don’t require attentive dental care, since they are not real. The truth is that you need to care for your dentures just as regularly as real teeth. These three oral health tips will help you stay on track with your denture care every day. Brush Without Toothpaste Your dentures should be brushed just like normal teeth, but you can skip the toothpaste. Common types of toothpaste might actually damage your dentures, so either used a special formula provided by your dentist or only use water. A soft-bristle denture brush is the best tool to use to clean your dentures and remove all plaque. Though your dentures can’t get cavities like real teeth, plaque must be removed to protect your gums and prevent gum infection and disease from forming. Of course, brushing your dentures will also keep them white, clean, and attractive.
