If you are a denture wearer, then you know how important it is to properly clean your appliance on a regular basis. But what do you need to use to clean it? Well, we are happy to tell you all about denture cleaners so you can keep your replacement teeth in tip-top shape!
What are denture cleaners?
Denture cleaners generally come in the form of a gel, paste, liquid, or cream. They are made to deeply clean your appliance, whether it’s a complete or partial denture. Some cleaners can also come in the form of a tablet that you drop into a glass of water to create a bubbly solution. Using these cleaners will help clean the germs and bacteria off of your appliance each day and they can also help maintain the shape and condition of your custom-made denture.
Do I need a denture cleaner?
Denture cleaners are generally recommended because they remove stains, loose particles, and odors that other cleaning agents can’t. So, if you want a pristine appliance, using a denture cleaner is the way to go.
What should I look for in a denture cleaner?
The most important characteristic to look for in a denture cleaner is the American Dental Association’s seal of approval. This seal proves that the product is safe and effective because it passed the ADA’s tests. If you choose a product with this stamp, you have the best cleaner available.
