Oral Health Is Important

Caring for your removable appliance is important for your oral health. Be sure to establish a dental hygiene routine that includes rinsing appliances after each meal and soaking them in a cleansing solution once a day.

Like your natural teeth, removable appliances require thorough care. The American College of Prosthodontists (ACP) recommends that dentures be cleaned daily by soaking and brushing with an effective, non-abrasive denture cleanser to reduce levels of biofilm and potentially harmful bacteria and fungi.

Develop a dental routine for preventative care

Rinse after every meal

Rinse after every meal

Rinse your appliance after each meal to remove food particles that may accumulate and cause discomfort or bacteria overgrowth.
Clean daily

Clean daily

The most effective method to keep your appliance clean is by using a soaking solution. Using a toothbrush and toothpaste, or similar cleaning products, may discolor or scratch the surface of the appliance causing micro-tears where bacteria can form in. Use a non-chlorinated, non-abrasive cleaner and a soft bristle brush to keep appliances looking and feeling like new.
Always soak

Always soak

Soak your appliance whenever it is not being used. Many appliances are made with materials that need moisture, to avoid warpage. To help appliances maintain their shape and pliability, soak appliances in water or a denture cleanser solution.

Why is cleaning an appliance important to oral health?

Reduce microbial plaque biofilm

Microbial Biofilms are complex communities of bacteria that can be found in the human body and natural environment. Due to the nature of biofilms, microbial plaque biofilm adheres to teeth, dental appliances and other crevices in the mouth. If biofilms mature, they become difficult to reduce and may lead to gingivitis or gum disease. Although biofilms cannot be completely eliminated, they can be reduced through toothbrushing, flossing, and other preventative products. Using denture cleansers and daily brushing significantly reduces microbial numbers.

Prevent denture stomatitis

Denture stomatitis is a common inflammatory condition of mucosal tissue in denture wearers that is triggered by microorganisms. The yeast/fungi causing microorganisms populate the mouth and the dental appliance causing reddening of the skin underneath the appliance. In some cases, sores may also be present. To minimize the risk of denture stomatitis establish a daily cleaning routine. Consult your doctor if you believe you have denture stomatitis. 

Prolong the lifespan of your appliance

Like our natural teeth, appliances need to be cleaned. Although, the materials used to make dental appliances are durable, overtime abrasive materials can harm the appliance and excessive brushing can cause scratches or roughness. Cleaning your appliance with a cleanser that is compatible with denture materials and is non-abrasive is vital to the health of an appliance
