Caring for Your Dentures

Posted .

Caring for your dentures is just as important as caring for your natural teeth. By making sure you care for your dentures daily you can have a bright and healthy smile. At first dentures can feel bulky or uncomfortable, but with time and care dentures can allow you to have a full smile to enjoy life with.

Our dentist, Dr. Bo Macdonald, wants everyone to feel confident with their smile. That’s why our team at Bo Macdonald DDS in Los Angeles, California, has come together to help you know more about cleaning and caring for your dentures.

With your natural teeth, we suggest brushing your teeth twice a day for at least two minutes with a soft-bristled toothbrush. Your dentures require similar cleaning every day. You should use a soft-bristled toothbrush to clean them daily. In addition to that you should also clean them by leaving them in a cleaning solution overnight.

While this focuses on your dentures, don’t forget your gums in this process. You can keep your gums clean and fresh by using a dental rinse to help fight bacteria in your mouth.
