denturesIf your wear dentures, you really need to read this blog. One of my readers asked me if there are any essential oils that can be used to clean her dentures. There are several ways to clean dentures naturally, some safer than others and some more effective than others. There are other ways that can keep your dentures clear of staph and MRSA infections.

There are three ways you can cleanse your dentures with products you probably have in your kitchen. You can use a solution of 1/2 water and 1/2 vinegar, or 1 teaspoon baking soda stirred into 8 ounces of water. The third solution is to use 1 part bleach to 10 parts water. Adding a teaspoon of calcium-chelating agent water softener to the bleach solution will help remove tartar buildup. For all three methods, soak your dentures for at least 20 to 30 minutes and be sure to rinse thoroughly before wearing. Tomorrow we’ll talk about keeping your dentures clear of infections that can develop into pneumonia.
