HOW TO CLEAN DENTURES

Using a denture cleaner is an important aspect of properly caring for your dentures, helping to ensure that both your dentures and your mouth stay clean-looking, fresh-smelling and germ-free. Many people wonder what the best way to clean dentures is, and with so many different types of denture cleaners on the market, it may be hard for you to determine which type of denture cleaning product works best.

When deciding on the best denture cleaning product to use, it is important that the product not only removes discoloring and odor-causing debris, but that it also sanitizes the apparatus, removing potentially harmful germs, viruses and bacteria. It is also important that a denture cleanser is gentle enough to not cause discoloration or abrasion to the denture surface

HOW TO CLEAN DENTURES WITH OAP CLEANER:

Many denture wearers struggle to find the best way to clean dentures. Cleaning dentures with OAP Cleaner is fast, easy and effective!

Simply place your full or partial dentures over a sink, bowl or towel (to prevent breakage from accidently dropping dentures, use a towel or fill sink or bowl with water) and then:

  • PUMP – Press the pump top of the OAP cleaner bottle to deliver the cleaning serum where your retainer need to be cleaned (one pump is all you need!)
  • SCRUB – Use a soft bristle brush or cloth to gently agitate the retainer cleanser and to provide full coverage over the entire apparatus
  • RINSE – Rinse the cleaner off with water and your retainer is clean!

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO CLEAN DENTURES PROPERLY?

Denture cleaning is important to maintaining oral health, as well as your overall health. Proper denture care is also necessary in order to maintain the look of dentures and to ensure that they last a long time.

Whether you wear complete or partial dentures, cleaning them every day is as essential as daily tooth brushing and flossing. Dentures should be cleaned daily to avoid the build-up of stains, as well as germs that can negatively impact mouth odor and overall health.

Denture containers can be breeding grounds for germs, so it is also important to clean denture containers regularly so that dentures are not exposed to germs and bacteria when placed back in their storage containers.

BENEFITS OF OAP CLEANER FOR CLEANING DENTURES:

OAP is an instant denture cleaner that takes just 60 seconds to use. The carefully formulated, proprietary cleaning solution is extremely effective at sanitizing dentures, killing 99.99% of all viruses, bacteria, germs and fungi. Additionally, it removes stains, plaque and offensive odors.

In addition to ridding dentures of harmful disease-causing and odor-causing agents, OAP is BPA, persulfate and chlorine-free, making it safe to use on all types of dentures, as well as denture containers. It is a gentle and mild cleaning agent that won’t cause discoloration or abrasion of the surface.

HOW DOES OAP CLEANER COMPARE TO DENTURE TABLETS OR DENTURE CLEANSER SOAKING SOLUTIONS?

Denture tablets and soaking solutions are designed to clean dentures as they sit in a liquid solution for a long period of time, generally overnight. In contrast, OAP Cleaner can clean dentures within a minute or less. Once issue with denture soaking cleaners is that if a denture has metal attachments, the metal can tarnish if the dentures are left to sit too long in the cleansing solution. OAP Cleaner does not pose this risk and is also more convenient to take on the go to be used wherever and whenever needed.

HOW DOES OAP CLEANER COMPARE TO USING ULTRASONIC CLEANING MACHINES FOR CLEANING DENTURES?

Ultrasonic cleaners are small devices that contain cleaning solution and create sound waves that are designed to agitate and dislodge deposits on dentures. Ultrasonic denture cleaners do not replace regular daily denture cleaning. OAP Cleaner can be used on a daily basis to more quickly and more effectively remove visible deposits on dentures, and it can also kill virtually all harmful germs, viruses and bacteria instantly. Due to their size, ultrasonic cleaners can also not be easily transported, while OAP denture cleaner can be taken with you anywhere you go.

CAN REGULAR HOUSEHOLD CLEANER BE USED TO CLEAN DENTURES?

Household cleaners, such as mild dishwashing liquid, hand soap, toothpaste, hydrogen peroxide or bleach should not be used to clean dentures. For one, these cleaners may contain ingredients that could be potentially harmful to your health if any residue is left on the denture when placed back in the mouth. Additionally, some types of cleaners can be too abrasive or can cause discoloration to parts of the denture. OAP Cleaner is a mild, safe and non-abrasive cleanser that can be used on all types of dentures.

“After researching and trying a few other products that claimed to help solce these issues, i found OAP – a product that satisfies the dental professionals’s needs and the patient’s need. My patients rave about how OAP clainer is convvenient, how clean it leaves their appliances, and how little time it takes to use. “
