Are you currently in the market for a set of dentures? Whether it will be your first pair, or you are looking to upgrade to a new pair, love your new smile with dentures.

Dentures can also improve your speech, fill out your facial structure, and make eating much easier, safer, and more effective. However, a good set of dentures is only as good as the care to maintain them. Listed below are some effective measure for cleaning your dentures:

– Make sure to treat your dentures with extreme care. They are not indestructible, and can easily be damaged if dropped. If your dentures become damaged, alert your dentist at Chandler Dental Excellence and we will assist you. Never try to fix broken dentures yourself.

– Because they are removable there is an even greater risk of harmful bacteria. Make sure to brush and rinse your dentures on a daily basis but not with toothpaste. Toothpaste is too abrasive, so use an ADA-approved denture cleaner or mild hand soap.

– Never let your dentures air-dry or remain in the air for too long. When the dentures are removed for periods of time, soak them in regular water or an approved cleaning solution. There are a few products you should avoid using on the dentures, as they can easily damage the pair. These include teeth whitening products, bleach, abrasive materials, hot water, or glue.

A good set of dentures can be the difference between a happy holiday season or a horrific one. Don’t let your teeth let you down.
