Dentures & Bridges : How to Clean & Whiten Dentures


So have you ever wondered on how to clean
and whiten your dentures? Well my name is Michelle and I’m a Dental Assistant with Solutionz
and today I’m going to show you on how you can clean and whiten your dentures. And here
we have a set of dentures and it’s really easy. Whenever you’re cleaning dentures, you
want to make sure that you just go ahead and use your toothbrush and toothpaste like you
normally would with regular teeth. You’re just going to brush the denture in a circular
motion, really focusing on the gum which is the pink part and on, on the tooth; like right
around the gum line and the tooth itself, really focusing, ’cause that’s most of the
time where the debris likes to sit and if you let the debris sit over a period of time,
it’ll actually harden itself to the denture. So brushing them on a regular basis, at least
three times a day or two to three times a day, brushing them in a circular motion on
the top, on the front side. You’re also going to do the same thing on the inside, you’re
going to brush them in a circular motion. And then what a lot of patients is they have
to also brush the inside of your denture. This is going to free, if you have any food
particles that are stuck underneath the denture, it’s going to free up those food particles;
so therefore, it doesn’t stick to the denture. So now once we just finish brushing the dentures,
you’re always going to want to put them in a dipping bath and let them sit overnight.
Also too, whenever it comes to whitening your dentures, there’s really, you really can’t
whiten your dentures due to the fact that the teeth have already been glazed; there’s
already been a shade, they’re porcelain teeth. So when the lab technician’s making them,
he’s already picked the porcelain shade and then he’s glazed over it. But if you, by brushing
and keeping your dentures clean, that will prevent them from becoming dingy in color
or to getting any stains on them. So that’s why it’s really important to brush your partial
and your dentures at least two to three times a day, so therefore, you’re preventing them
for becoming discolored. But really there’s no way to really can whiten them. If you want
whiter dentures then you would need to go see your General Dentist so then, therefore
he’d be able to make you a new whiter set. But once again my name is Michelle and I’m
a Dental Assistant with Solutionz and I just explained to you on how, and showed you, on
how you can clean and whiten your partial dentures.

  1. Please do not use regular toothpaste on cleaning your dentures. Because of the abrasives in the toothpaste it will damage your denture. Please buy specific toothpaste that is meant for dentures. Or simply brush with water and soak your dentures in cleaning solution (meant for dentures!)

  2. I can't believe she work in a dentist office and don't know toothpaste should NOT be used on dentures!! I agree with pictureperfectbratty

  3. I can't believe she said to use tooth paste, which I was told is bad for the dentures. Sheesh, totally uninformative. Didn't even specify you should also use a soft bristle tooth brush.

  4. This video was no help I mean why have the video we already know how to brush are damn teeth I mean Hell!!!!!!!

  5. +eHow I wanted to ask some people put crown on their teeth Porsolene crown and the color of the crown is little bit blue they're not fully white and they look weird . please tell the solution what to do??

  6. This is the worst video I've ever seen. They are saying to take your dentures out 2 to 3 times a day to clean under them using REGULAR toothpaste and toothbrush. My dentists have said that would damage the dentures. Plus, who is going to take their teeth out that often to brush underneath them? God I hate youtube sometimes.

  7. Wrong! I'm surprised, she is considered a, "professional." First of all, they're acrylic, not porcelain. Second, I was told NEVER to use toothpaste on mine, because toothpaste has fluoride in it, and it's abrasive. Supposed to use hand soap.

  8. You should NEVER use regular toothpaste on your dentures!! EVER! I don't care if she is a dentist or denturist…that is WRONG information! And people don't "forget" to brush the part where your gums go, you can feel that if you don't! You can also remove stains, a.k.a. whiten your dentures to their original color, with Stain Away (a product made for dentures).

  9. Who cares if she's wrong. She's fricken hot, with a great wrist action! She could clean my dentures with toothpaste ANYTIME! Hubba Hubba!

  10. I just got a partial yesterday and my dentist also told me to brush them just like my regular teeth. Perhaps it’s based on the type and quality whether it’s appropriate to use toothpaste or not.

  11. The problem with my dentures is brown plaque buildup on the underside (inside) of the dentures where the surface is rougher than the outside surface. After soaking the dentures overnight in a 50/50 water-vinegar solution overnight, I put the dentures in my powerful $ 400 ultrasonic bath cleaner that I use to clean carburetors. The brown stains are still there although they MAY be reduced a bit. What do I need to get rid of that brown plaque – some sort of ultrasonic dental pick?

  12. How do you lighten the denture gums? Over the years, the pink gums have darkened so I’m wondering if these can be lightened back to their original pink

  13. Why the f**k does everyone have to leave the same comment? Im sure every single one of these people just LOVE to hear themselves talk!!! Soooooooo yes you assholes we all have it bashed in our heads to not use toothpaste on dentures!!!!!!!!!!!!
