Denture cleaner

Denture cleaner

Denture Cleaner, also known as denture cleanser, is a cleaner used to assist in denture cleaning. Chemical denture cleaners can come in cream, liquid, powder or tablet format. Some chemical denture cleaners are effervescent and others are not. There are also mechanical denture cleaners such as denture brushes and ultrasonic denture cleaners that use ultrasonic cleaning.



Dentures have been cleaned using water or acidic mixtures of water/vinegar, water/lemon juice, water/baking soda for many years. In the 1930s, Alexander Block developed the Polident brand of denture cleaner at the Block Drug Company.[1] Others have followed such as Warner-Lambert introduction of Efferdent denture cleanser tablets in 1966[2] and Renew denture cleaner powder in 1986 by Mid-Continental Dental Supply Co. Ltd.[3]
