What should I clean my dentures with?

ANSWER

Clean with a denture cleaner. Hand soap or mild dishwashing liquid can be used, too. Household cleansers and many toothpastes may be too abrasive. Also, avoid using bleach, as this may whiten the pink portion of the denture.

Ultrasonic cleaners can be used. They're small bathtub-like devices that contain a cleaning solution. The denture is immersed in the tub and sound waves create a wave motion that dislodges the undesirable deposits. Ultrasonic cleaners, don't replace daily brushing.
