Advice and tips on caring for your dentures

  • Only your dentist is qualified to assess your oral health and make adjustments to your partial or denture.
  • A soft, big nylon denture tooth brush with round-ended bristles should be used every day to brush dentures on the inside and exterior.
  • Instead of toothpaste, which is extremely abrasive and will scratch your dentures, use denture creams. Use cold water to rinse.
  • When submerged in hot water, dentures stretch. Regularly check your denture for worn teeth.
  • Your appearance can age you and your dentures can perform poorly if they are worn and discolored.
  • Talk to your dentist and doctor about all of your current medications. Make sure to schedule routine appointments with your dentist.
  • Check any loose dentures right once because they can put strain and friction on the bones and gum tissues.
  • When not in use, cover dentures with water or a denture-cleaning solution to prevent them from drying out
