Denture Cleaning & Care

Denture Cleaning & Care


Step 1. Remove dentures and brush any food debris under warm running water.

Step 2. Place a towel in the sink so that the dentures won’t break if you drop them.

Step 3. Warm soapy water and a small amount of washing up liquid is a good pre-soak for 2 minutes, then rinse the soap off before using any denture cream.

Step 4 . Use a denture cream, soap or a non abrasive toothpaste and a soft bristled toothbrush on your denture and natural teeth and also clean your tongue and palate.

Step 5. Rinse your dentures with clean water before replacing, these solutions can contain harmful chemicals that cause vomiting, pain or burns if swallowed.

Denture care recommendations:

  • If you notice a build up of stubborn stains or scale, you can have your dentures cleaned.
  • Do not to scrub your denture too hard as this may cause grooves in the surface and encourage bacterial growth to form. Stiff-bristled brushes, strong cleansers and harsh and abrasive toothpastes, can also damage dentures
  • Call us promptly if your dentures become loose as this can cause irritation, sores and infection.Place your dentures into a cleaning solution (effervescent solution ) following the manufacturers instructions
  • Check you are using the correct cleaning soak as some contain corrosives (Chlorine)and will damage your Chrome dentures, be sure you don’t bend your denture especially any with plastic or metal clasps.
  • Attend regular dental checkups, even if you are an edentulous (have no remaining teeth)
  • Denture Cleaning service is available Price £30.00.
