Best ways to clean partial dentures
You'll need to brush your partial dentures every day to remove plaque and help prevent stains on the false teeth. It's best to use a brush that is designed for cleaning dentures. A denture brush has bristles that are specifically arranged to fit the shape of dentures, but a regular, soft-bristled toothbrush will also work. Just don't use a brush with hard bristles, which can damage the denture.
You can use hand soap or mild dish soap to clean your dentures. Other household cleaners and many toothpastes are too abrasive and can damage your dentures.
Before cleaning your partial denture, hold it over a towel or a sink full of water, just in case you accidentally drop it. Rinse the denture thoroughly to clean off loose food particles. Moisten the brush, and apply the denture cleaner. Brush the denture surfaces gently to avoid damaging the plastic or bending the metal.
Before putting your partial denture back in, brush your surrounding teeth, gums, tongue and palate with a soft-bristled brush. This stimulates circulation in your tissues and helps remove plaque.
