Vero Beach Dentures | Caring for Your Mouth and Gums with Dentures

For first-time denture wearers, it can take some time to get used to wearing dentures. They may feel loose at first while your cheek and tongue muscles become accustomed to securing them in place. You may also experience some minor irritation in your mouth, increased saliva, and soreness. These will eventually go away as you get used to wearing them. Whether you wear full or partial Vero Beach dentures, there is more to caring for them than brushing and soaking them.

Steps to Clean Dentures

Proper care will help keep your full or partial dentures clean, stain-free, and long-lasting. Practicing excellent oral and dental hygiene to avoid infection in the mouth. Denture wearers can develop stomatitis, also called candida or thrush, that is a yeast/fungus that can grow and causes a disease in the mouth if oral hygiene is neglected. Here are steps you take to help prevent common denture problems from developing and keep your mouth and gums healthy:

  • Remove your dentures and handle them gently, so you don’t bend or damage the plastic or attachments. Dentures can break easily.
  • After removing your dentures, gently brush your gums, tongue, cheeks, and the roof of your mouth with a soft-bristled toothbrush or gauze daily. Brushing will remove plaque buildup and stimulate circulation in your tissues and help reduce the risk of irritation and bad breath.
  • Rinse your mouth with lukewarm salt water to help clean your gums.
  • Brush your dentures gently using a moist, soft-bristled toothbrush or denture brush and denture cleanser. Avoid using whitening toothpaste as it is too harsh for cleaning dentures. A mild hand or dishwashing soap is ideal. Rinse your dentures under warm water to remove food particles.
  • Prevent your dentures from drying out by soaking them overnight in warm water or denture-soaking solution to keep their shape.
  • Be sure to rinse your dentures before putting them back in your mouth. It is also essential to see your dentist regularly for professional dental cleanings and to have your dentures checked to ensure proper fit.
