Q:

How do you make a homemade denture cleaner?

A:

A number of products found in the home can be used for cleaning dentures, including hydrogen peroxide. This solution provides a very affordable way to clean and disinfect dentures. Simply pour the peroxide solution into a denture cup, and soak the teeth overnight.

Baking soda and vinegar can also be used to cleanse dentures. Combine the two ingredients until the solution begins to bubble, and soak the teeth in the solution overnight.

Bleach can also be used to clean dentures. Mexican Dental Vacation and Wellness Center suggests brushing the dentures with a solution containing one part bleach and two parts water to keep them white, clean and sanitized.

Cleaning and disinfecting dentures can also be done with denture toothpaste and denture brush. This helps to remove bacteria and loosen food debris. Rinsing and brushing is essential in preventing infection as well. Disinfect the denture brush by soaking it in a 50/50 mix of bleach and water once a week.

Aloe vera gel is a preventative treatment that is helpful in preventing fungal growth, so apply the gel to the dentures twice a day. Soaking dentures in a solution of half vinegar and water is also effective, as vinegar helps to loosen plaque and eliminates stains.

    How do you make a homemade tooth filling?

    A:

    For anyone who can't get to a dentist right away, a homemade filling can provide temporary relief, according to WebMD. If a filling does fall out, try to keep the piece if you can to later show the dentist. Restorative materials used for temporary fillings are sold over-the-counter. These temporary fixes last about 48 hours, so you still need to visit a dentist pretty quickly.
