Cleaning dentures throughout the day is important. Proper care of your dentures prolongs their life-span while promoting your overall wellness and confidence.
Some of the most common problems with dentures are that:
Bacteria can adhere to any removable oral device, including full and partial dentures, and, if they remain on the dentures undisturbed, they can replicate rapidly to form mature biofilms on your dentures because they remain in place all day long. In a similar way to the biofilms on natural teeth, the biofilms on dentures will contain a mixture of benign species derived from the normal oral microbiome, as well as potentially pathogenic species that can cause problems, such as Streptococcus mutants, the primary bacterial species associated with the development of dental caries. If these biofilms remain on the dentures between usage occasions, they can create issues, such as undesirable taste and oral malodor. In addition, there may be a risk of developing bacteria-induced diseases and conditions in the mouth and, perhaps, elsewhere in the body. Thus, the buildup of bacterial biofilm on dentures can negatively impact a user’s experience and compliance to their use.
