Do you have dentures? If so, please remember that you need to clean your appliance each and every day so it can remain in tip-top shape for many years to come. To help you keep your dentures clean and pristine, our JP Dental and Implant Center dental team encourages you to use a denture cleaner.

Denture cleaners generally come in the form of a gel, paste, liquid, or cream. They are made to deeply clean your appliance, whether it’s a complete or partial denture. Some cleaners can also come in the form of a tablet that you drop into a glass of water to create a bubbly solution. Using these cleaners will help clean the germs and bacteria off of your appliance each day and they can also help maintain the shape and condition of your custom-made denture.

It is usually recommended to use a denture cleaner because it helps remove stains and odors that toothbrushes simply cannot remove. Like teeth, dentures need to be cleaned thoroughly each day so tooth decay and gum disease do not form.

The best characteristic to look for in a denture cleaner is the American Dental Association seal of acceptance. This seal means that the cleaner has passed tests that have evaluated for safety and effectiveness. This is the best way to know you have the safest and most effective cleaning agent available.
