service Denture Care Just like your normal teeth, dentures collect plaque and tartar. You can brush your dentures with ordinary facial soap. Never  use toothpaste - it's too abrasive.  Use a soft nylon toothbrush or other recommended denture brush. Brushes with stiff, coarse bristles can cause excessive  wear to denture materials and introduce scratches which will make your denture more susceptible to collecting debris,  plaque and stain. Use a separate brush for cleaning any natural teeth you have. Also, make sure you clean all areas of your  denture.  Consider using a soft brush on your gums to remove any plaque that may have accumulated. If a toothbrush is too irritating,  a piece of wet gauze will do just as well. The massaging action helps increase circulation, improving the health of your gums.  It's a good idea to massage your gums by placing the thumb and index finger over the ridge and use a "press-and-release"  stroke. Any sore red areas, burning sensations, white patches or growths need to be brought to the attention of your dental  office.  When cleaning your dentures be sure to fill the sink halfway with water, if they fall into the basin without water they will crack.  There are special brushes available for dentures ask your dentist or check your pharmacy.  Try not to let your denture dry out; this might cause its shape to distort.  Never try to sterilize your dentures in hot water; they will warp.  When brushing your denture, don't hold it too firmly as this may fracture it  Never scrape your denture with sharp instruments in an attempt to remove hard deposits. Instead, take it to your dental  office to have them removed.  When you're not wearing your dentures, keep them in water or denture solution. They need to be kept in a wet environment  in order to maintain proper fit and prevent distortion.  Never leave your dentures in a place accessible to small kids or pets.  Because your dentures apply constant pressure to the tissues of your mouth; taking them out at night gives your mouth a  chance to recover. Prior to going to bed, remove your dentures and place them in a container of denture cleaning solution or  water. Preferably, you should soak your denture in a solvent (such as Efferdent, Polident) or a detergent with a chemical  action that removes or loosens light stains and deposits. After soaking, thoroughly remove all cleanser by light brushing your  denture under cold running water. Occasionally, diluted bleach may be used if the denture doesn't have any metal portions or  clasps. Please note that bleach will corrode metal. Most commercial brands of cleaners are identical. If you keep your  dentures in over night, red and irritated gums may result. It may also increase the rate of bone resorption, which will lead to  loose-fitting dentures.  If you're unable to take them out at night they should be soaked for at least 30 minutes daily. Soaking your dentures aids in  removing stains and preventing the accumulation of bacteria which can cause oral infections and odors.  Your dental office may provide ultrasonic cleaning to remove heavy stains and calculus (tartar) buildup. The most effective  way to keep your dentures clean is by daily brushing, in combination with soaking in a chemical solution  Our Services More Information about Denture care CARE DENTAL CLINIC shop no. 42, mayur park buildig, sec-36, kamothe, navi mumbai - 410209.
