WHY YOU SHOULD USE A PARTIAL DENTURE CLEANSER

THE IMPORTANCE OF PROPER PARTIALS CARE

Partial dentures require special treatment because they can introduce a higher risk of bacteria, which can affect your remaining teeth and gums. It’s important to clean your partial regularly as well as strengthen and protect your remaining teeth.

Switching up your routine is the first step.

When cleaning your partials, it’s best to use a partial denture cleanser and a soft-bristle toothbrush. An effective cleanser will kill bacteria and remove stains without scratching your partial denture. Polident ProPartial products is a simple 3-step range specially developed to cleanse partial dentures, help strengthen teeth and help protect your mouth against odor-causing bacteria.

Some cleaning methods may be harmful to partial dentures.

Ingredients found in many toothpastes can be abrasive, and can damage or scratch your partials. That’s why it’s important to use the right products that do not use any harsh cleaning materials or contain bleach. Avoid using hot water to clean your partials.

Take care of your whole mouth if you wear a partial

Partial dentures can act as bacteria magnets, which can have a negative impact on your remaining teeth and your gums. It’s important to practice good oral care to strengthen and protect the vulnerable teeth next to your partial. Always use a fluoride toothpaste to strengthen your teeth’s natural defenses and fight plaque, the number one cause of gum problems. Also, try using a fluoride mouthwash too which works where toothbrushing misses to kill bacteria.
