Dentures Care

Many items will stain your dentures, including  coffee, tea, red wine, tomato sauces, curries, medications and your own saliva.  Daily denture cleaning is critical in order to prevent plaque and tartar build-up, food stains, bad breath, mouth infections and redness or irritation to your gums.

Dentures can break, so always fill the sink with water, then clean your dentures over the sink, just in case they slip out of your hands by accident.  Remove your dentures, rinse with water and brush thoroughly after meals. Use a soft brush and liquid dish or hand soap – never use toothpaste as it is too abrasive and may scratch the denture teeth.  Don’t forget to use a separate toothbrush and toothpaste to clean any natural teeth, tongue and gum surfaces. Remove your dentures  overnight and place in your denture cup with denture cleaner or mouthwash.  Never use bleach to clean or soak your denture, as it can weaken the structure of the denture and discolor the acrylic.  Make certain that you read the instructions for your denture cleaner, and that you are using the correct substance for your  type of dentures

You should Never attempt to make your own adjustments or repair the dentures.
