Caring for Your Dentures in Billerica
People lose their teeth every day—it is a fact of life. As children, losing a tooth often required celebration and a visit from the tooth fairy.

For patients in Billerica dentures might be an appropriate solution, as advancements have allowed dentures to create a more natural smile appearance than in the past. And if you have dentures, you might be wondering about the best way to clean them. Dr. Adam Danzig, Dr. Barry Danzig and Dr. Lili Tayari, Billerica, MA dentists, are here to offer you some helpful tips.
Remove and rinse dentures after eating. After eating, it is important to clean your dentures. So run water over your dentures to remove food debris and other loose particles.
Clean your mouth after removing your dentures. Before placing your dentures back in your mouth after rinsing, use a soft-bristled toothbrush on your natural teeth and gauze or a soft toothbrush to clean your tongue and palate.
Scrub your dentures daily. Gently scrub your dentures using a denture cleaner, mild soap or dishwashing liquid and a denture brush or soft toothbrush to remove food, plaque and other deposits.
Handle with care. Be sure you do not bend or damage the plastic or the clasps when cleaning.
Soak your dentures overnight. Most types of dentures need to remain moist to keep their shape—place dentures in water or a mild denture-soaking solution overnight.
Rinse before placing them back in your mouth. Always rinse your dentures before placing them back in your mouth.
