Sanitizing Devices For Dentures

Just like you brush your teeth daily to free them of food remnants and dirt, your denture also requires routine cleaning. The traditional ways of cleaning denture are:

  • Soaking and brushing it with a soft brush and soap after removing from mouth
  • Keeping it overnight in a solution of denture cleanser tablet
  • Brushing denture with cleansing creams, gels or pastes and rinsing off.
  • Using a denture cleaning device

Studies have revealed the presence of pathogenic microorganisms such as bacteria, yeast, and virus on partial and complete dentures. We can kill them completely by sterilizing or reduce the number of such pathogens to non-threatening levels by disinfecting or sanitizing.

The denture cleaning procedures at home usually perform sanitizing and there are several sanitizing devices in the market which use ultraviolet (UV) light for cleaning the dentures placed in a bath. Short wavelength UV light disrupts the DNA of microorganisms which die upon the loss of vital functions.

Mechanism of UV irradiation

UV sanitizers are typically manufactured with two or more bulbs (light source) to irradiate both sides of the denture kept in the UV bath. This is because dentures are solid objects and have crevices and cavities. If sufficient light exposure is not given on both sides and to cover the maximum surface of the denture, the cleaning will not be efficient. Microorganisms may still be clinging to the particulates adhered to the corners.

To increase the completeness of cleaning, many sanitizing devices are provided with an additional cleaning mechanism of sonic vibration. Ultrasonic sound waves are used to vibrate the dentures placed in the bath in addition to the UV lighting. UV sanitizers do not use any kind of chemicals for cleaning. Water alone is sufficient to rinse your denture while using these devices.

Never think that you will be wasting your penny by buying the cleaner devices. Search for an appropriate one suiting your budget.

The versatility of these cleaning utilities can provide you extra help for other appliances like mouthguards, retainers, orthodontic devices and even your jewelery!

Shopping tips that will save you the most money

The idea of shopping until you drop is indeed fascinating. How about saving some money and time to delay dropping and extend shopping even more.

Reckon these before you shop –

  • We often are in a hurry to land in a store every time we fall short of a grocery item or anything else. Think, if you can find it from a local market vendor, or if borrowing can help your one time requirement.
  • In a super mart/one stop shop, follow the list you have prepared and avoid loitering in the unplanned avenues of the store. The super stores are strategically designed in a way to allure people into buying more than what they have come for.
  • Consider a low price substitute, but do not compromise on quality. There are less fancy markets in and around every society, which offer good quality stuff for everyday use. Consider buying from them before racing to your go-to store in the mall.
  • Buying in bulk is arguably considered the most profitable thing to do. However, it isn’t every time. Buying for the whole quarter is blocking your money and dwindling your monthly budget, nothing else. Refrain from doing it.
  • Buy fresh green grocery. Tin and vacuum packed grocery items are old, stale, preserved and most importantly highly expensive. Stroll around the vegetable market while returning from your evening walk and fetch freshness for your kitchen on a much reasonable price.

Your love for buying from a good-looking, sparkling store may never lessen, but who would mind the same thing in an economic way. It gives one a great boost, when you have saved a substantial amount of money like this. ‘Saving’ in any form, gives every household, a fresh whiff of oxygen. Budget making and sticking to it is the ever-challenging task for every house administrator. Some nifty little tips would lessen the challenge, perhaps.
