Brushing gums.

Hi,
Great website. Thank you. No wonder no one talks to me very long;-) At least my young granddaughter has no qualms about saying "Grandma your breath stinks, what's wrong." Thanks to you, know I know.

Since I have learned almost all I need to clean my dentures (and why don't dentists tell you?), does using just a soft toothbrush or cloth on the gums, tongue, posts, etc really remove the bacteria? Can toothpaste be used? My dentist and I argued about this as the posts I have are embedded in the bottom portion of teeth which I believe can use toothpaste (he doesn't). I don't really want to use soap to clean my mouth. What is the solution? I'll be waiting with baited (and bad) breath to hear from you.
