Best Homemade Denture Cleaners

As many of us know, dentures are replacements for missing teeth that can be taken out and put back into your mouth. Even though they will never fill like natural teeth, one of their main advantages is that they are natural looking!

Dentures are a great choice for those who cannot receive implants, but how can we take care of them? Although buying dental cleaner is very usual, there are a few things that you should avoid when thinking about cleaning your denture, let us tell you how to make your own homemade denture cleaner!

Regular Denture Cleaner vs Homemade Dental Cleaner

It is very common to buy dental cleaner in any convenience store, but we recommend you to read the back label carefully since the majority of dental cleaners contain an active ingredient called persulfate, which lately has been a major concern because it has caused allergic reactions in some people, leading to tissue damage, and other problems.
For example, there are a few things that you should avoid when thinking about cleaning your dentures, such as abrasive cleaning materials, whitening toothpaste, and hot water. All of these can damage the material your teeth are made of.

Make Your Own Homemade Denture Cleaner

The purpose dental cleaner is not only to keep our denture free from stains and looking their best, it’s about controlling the growth of micro-organisms on your dentures. It’s important to clarify that cleaners must be used only when dentures are out of the mouth.
Like we said, some cleaners can damage your denture, so it’s better to use friendly products that can be more affordable and useful. For example, baking soda and vinegar can be easily found in any store or in your own kitchen. They’re natural, and surely will keep your teeth looking their best without giving you any reaction.

Which Homemade Denture Cleaners Can I Use?

The most commonly used and effective homemade denture cleaners are:

• Diluted bleach soaking solution
• Bleach-based solution combined with enzymatic dishwasher soap
• A vinegar-based soak.
• A sodium bicarbonate solution

All of these four cleaners are effective for cleaning and disinfecting your teeth. They remove stains caused by coffee, tea or tobacco products.
