Keeping a denture or bridge clean

04 / 11 / 2016

Why is cleaning important ?

Just like natural teeth, dentures and bridges collect bits of food, plaque (a sticky deposit, mostly made up of bacteria) and tartar (hardened plaque). By keeping them clean, you can stop decay in any remaining natural teeth and help prevent gum disease. It’s also good for your comfort and appearance to clean dentures, as dirty dentures can make your mouth swollen and sore.
