While many different kinds of denture cleaners are available, not all are equally effective. There are also many DIY cleaning methods using common household products. Each has its advantages, distinct uses and benefits as well as their downsides. That’s why it’s important to find a hygiene regimen that best suits you and your oral health requirements.
If you want to learn more about cleaning your dentures, this article is a must-read. We will cover the most definite uses of denture cleaners, which are as follows:
1. Removing Stains
Because an individual wears their dentures daily, they are bound to experience wear and tear as well as stains and unpleasant odors. Stains are particularly associated with tobacco products, dark drinks and certain foods.
There are several traditional DIY methods of removing stains- brushing dentures with salt, hydrogen peroxide &/or vinegar, soaking the dentures in diluted mouthwash, and some people even use dish soap. The comprehensive Dr. B Denture Kit includes all the solutions necessary to remove all kinds of stains, no matter how stubborn. Effective denture cleaners include Cleanadent Oral Prosthetic & Mouth Toothpaste and Cleanadent Wipes, The Dr. B Denture & Mouth Toothbrush, Liquid Crystal and an Ultrasonic Cleaner.
Effective denture cleaners should remove stains and prevent new ones from forming. Once the dentures begin to appear yellowish and darker- it can negatively affect one's self-esteem and self-confidence.
2. Killing Bacteria and Other Pathogens
While we eat, the remaining food particles stuck in our mouth and dentures can lead to bacterial and fungus colonization and resulting infections- Thrush, Pneumonia, Digestive & Respiratory Diseases.
Liquid Crystal kills these pathogens. It works even better with our Dr. B Ultrasonic Cleaner to remove through traditional cleaning procedures.
We at Dr. B believe proper denture hygiene is a priority. While many different types of denture cleaners are available, there is only one comprehensive system developed by a dentist to earn multiple Seals of Acceptance from the American Dental Association- Dr. B Dental Solutions.
3. Freshening Breath
Dentures collect food particles, stale adhesive, biofilm, and bacterial buildup. This is the major cause of poor oral health and even worse- Denture Breath. Dentures can be comparatively more difficult to clean than natural teeth, and so is removing adhesive from your gums and palate. If you want fresh breath and improved oral health, you must use the best products on a daily basis.
Cleanadent Dental Prosthetics & Mouth Cleaning Paste, enriched with Vitamins A, D & E , Coconut Oil & Tea Tree Oil, is the only toothpaste recommended by the ADA for dentures and the entire mouth, including implants. The best part- you can brush your dentures in your mouth just like natural teeth!
Cleanadent is also available in a convenient Wipe version- Cleanadent Wipes- for on the go hygiene.
4. Improving Appearance & Health
Biofilm, stale adhesive, certain habits, and leftover food can often lead to wear and tear as well as a deleterious effect on the appearance of your dentures. To keep them in shape and well-maintained, you need to clean your dentures and your mouth daily with effective cleaning solutions.
Traditional denture cleaners are usually powder or tablets and require an individual to soak their dentures in the cleaning solution for a specified time.
5. Prolonging Lifespan
If you want something to last, you take care of it. The same is true for dentures. With time, your dentures can become dingy and even change color due to the prolonged stains, bacterial buildup, food particles, and biofilm. Daily cleaning with Dr. B Dental Solutions will maintain their esthetics as well as increase their lifespan and performance.
