And that's it! Denture upkeep can easily become a part of your nightly routine.
Damaged or broken dentures can cause serious discomfort. That's why it's important to avoid products or behaviors that might weaken dentures. For example, never rinse or brush false teeth in hot or boiling water, as hot water can warp your appliance. Instead, opt for warm water when caring for your dentures.
Try to keep your dentures moist. When dentures dry out, they become brittle. In turn, your false teeth will not last as long. Therefore, properly storing your dentures in warm salt water or denture cleansers overnight will keep your appliance functioning longer.
Avoid harmful chemicals and strong cleansers, like bleach-containing products. Bleaching products damage oral appliances and tarnish metal attachments. Prevent damage by using only dentist-approved or gentle solutions, like hydrogen peroxide.
