After Partials & Dentures

How to Care for Your Partials and Dentures

Taking care of partials and dentures provided by Lake Myrtle Dental is essential to maintain their function, longevity, and your overall oral health. Here are some key steps for proper care:

  1. Clean Your Dentures Daily: Remove your dentures or partials after meals and brush them gently with a soft-bristled denture brush or toothbrush and mild soap or denture cleaner. Avoid using toothpaste, as it can be too abrasive and may scratch the surface of the dentures.
  2. Soak Your Dentures Overnight: Place your dentures or partials in a denture cleaning solution or water overnight to keep them moist and prevent them from drying out. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for soaking and cleaning solutions.
  3. Handle with Care: Handle your dentures or partials carefully to avoid dropping them or damaging them. When removing or inserting them, do so over a soft towel or basin of water to cushion any falls.
  4. Maintain Good Oral Hygiene: Even if you wear dentures, it’s important to maintain good oral hygiene by brushing your gums, tongue, and remaining natural teeth (if applicable) with a soft-bristled toothbrush or gauze pad. This helps remove plaque and bacteria and prevents gum disease and bad breath.
  5. Visit Your Dentist Regularly: Schedule regular dental check-ups and cleanings at Lake Myrtle Dental to ensure the proper fit and function of your dentures or partials and to address any issues or adjustments needed.
  6. Avoid Harsh Cleaning Agents: Avoid using harsh chemicals, bleach, or abrasive cleaners on your dentures or partials, as these can damage the material and cause discoloration.
  7. Rinse After Eating: After meals, rinse your dentures or partials under running water to remove food particles and debris. This helps prevent staining and bacterial buildup.
  8. Store Properly: When not wearing your dentures or partials, store them in a denture case or container filled with water to prevent them from drying out or warping.

By following these care instructions provided by Lake Myrtle Dental, you can ensure that your dentures or partials remain clean, comfortable, and functional, allowing you to enjoy a healthy smile and improved quality of life.
