Dentures and bridges, just like natural teeth, collect bits of food, plaque and tartar. Therefore, it is important to keep your dentures as well as bridges absolutely clean to prevent gum disease and stop decay in any natural teeth remaining.
Goodbridge denture hygiene can also prevent oral thrush, which is an infection that occurs when people wear dentures sometimes.
To ensure that you do not break the denture while cleaning, you should clean it over a basin of water. Thoroughly clean the denture everyday and ensure that you use a soft-to-medium toothbrush in order to prevent denture from getting scratched. You can also use your normal toothpaste or soap and water. Be sure to rinse the denture when you have finished cleaning it.
While cleaning bridge, it is important to clean underneath the bridge as well as using the normal procedure of brushing with fluoride toothpaste and flossing at each end of the bridge. You can use a special floss with a stiff end which you can poke underneath the bridge and pull through.
