1. Remove dentures and brush any food debris under warm running water. You may want to place a towel on or in the sink so that the dentures won’t break if you drop them. Handle your dentures carefully. Be sure you don’t bend or damage your denture especially any with plastic or metal clasps. Take care that you are using the correct cleaning soak as some contain corrosives (Chlorine)and will damage or tarnish the metal components on your Chrome dentures. Always contact your dentist or (CDT) who will be more than happy to advise.
2. Place dentures in a solution of warm soapy water ie: a small amount of any washing up liquid and leave to soak for 2 minutes, rinse the soap off before using any denture cream. Avoid stiff-bristled brushes, strong cleansers and harsh toothpaste, as these are too abrasive and can damage your dentures. Toothpastes advertised as whitening pastes are especially abrasive and should be avoided with removable dentures.
Please be be careful: Not to scrub too hard as this may cause grooves in the surface and encourage bacterial growth to form.
4. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush on natural teeth and gauze or a soft denture toothbrush to clean your tongue and palate.
