How do you clean fixed hybrid implant dentures?

Lepore Comprehensive Dentistry provides the service of hybrid implant dentures for residents in and around Dunedin, Florida. We help you smile better.

When Dr. Ryan Lepore starts your implant procedure, you will go through the months-long process of getting your mouth ready for your implant teeth. Once you finish your last procedure and smile perfectly, you probably think you are done. But you still have to clean your dentures though to make sure that they are correctly maintained. 

Cleaning Your Fixed Hybrid Dentures

Your denture cleaning process differs from traditional dentures. You do still clean them, but you do not need to buy a sonic cleaner or Efferdent. With hybrid fixed dentures, you brush and floss them just as you would your natural teeth using a soft-bristled toothbrush and non-abrasive toothpaste. You should brush at least twice a day or as recommended by your dentist, use short, back-and-forth strokes, and brush the denture’s outer, inner, and chewing surfaces gently. You also floss at these times. That helps keep your dentures looking great and also protects your gums from gum disease. Even with dentures, you must maintain your oral hygiene.

Many dentists recommend that you use a Waterpik flosser to clean the dentures well, especially the area between your natural gums and where the implant screws into your gums. A narrow space exists here that can allow food particles to become trapped. The Waterpik helps you keep this area clean as this is important to maintain healthy gum tissue and keep your implants free of infection-causing bacteria.

Once a year, you return to your dentist’s office for a checkup. There, they will examine your dentures and polish them. If needed, your denture can be professionally removed and cleaned during these visits.
