Some yeast infections will clear up completely if you don’t wear your dentures at night for two weeks. Clean your dentures by brushing, soaking and then brushing again. We recommend using a soft toothbrush so you do not damage the material of your dentures. You can also soak your dentures in a solution to sterilise them. We’ll be happy to advise. Those with dentures having metal parts, definitely need to seek advice from us as the wrong solution can damage the prosthetic.
Medication is possible if good oral hygiene therapy has failed . . . just ask our clinical staff.
Battery operated Sonic Denture Cleaning machine
Denture deep cleaning – can we help?
Some people get a build-up of tartar on their dentures just as they would on their natural teeth, and you will struggle to remove this yourself. Our laboratory has a deep cleansing machine that will have you dentures looking like new in just a few minutes. Call us to book in for this while-you-wait cleaning service.
We also sell the battery operated Sonic Denture Cleaning machine that will help with daily maintenance. We would recommend; however, a soft toothbrush is used in conjunction with this device.
