Meanwhile, the tooth frame of the removable denture is made from metal, plastic, screw, etc. The tooth frame is designed to fit and hug each customer’s real jaw, which has the effect of shaping and  supporting.  The denture has a pink plastic base design that looks similar to real gums, the teeth are also the same color and shape as real teeth to ensure aesthetics.

You should use a soft brush to clean the denture, wash it with salt water and soap at least 2 times a day.  However, it should be noted that absolutely do not use toothpaste to clean dentures because it can wear down your dentures.

At night, before going to bed, you should remove the denture, clean it and soak it in water mixed with vinegar at a ratio of 1:1.  Or you can apply specialized dental gel for dentures 1-2 times per day to prevent fungal growth.

Besides, you should clean your gums, rinse your mouth with mouthwash after removing dentures.  At least once a week, denture cleaning brushes should also be soaked in Clorox solution.
