Care of Dental Prosthetics
Cleaning full or partial dentures requires special caution. Because these prosthetics can break if dropped, handle them with care during the cleaning process. It’s best to hold the devices over a folded towel or a sink filled with water in case you accidentally drop them.
First, rinse the full or partial denture to remove any loose food particles. Then, use a brush specifically designed for dentures along with denture cleaner to keep the dentures from becoming permanently stained. (A regular soft-bristled toothbrush is also acceptable.) Brush gently to avoid damaging the denture.
Some people prefer to wash their dentures with hand soap or a mild dishwashing detergent. This is alright; however, avoid using abrasive cleansers that might damage the prosthetic devices.
