How should I care for my dentures?
If you are living with tooth loss, dentures are an excellent solution for replacing an entire arch of missing teeth. A denture is an appliance that you can easily remove, and it is typically made of acrylic to complement your skin tone with natural-looking teeth that provide both function and a beautiful smile. When you invest in reclaiming your smile and your confidence, you want to be sure that you know how to properly care for your denture and gain the most longevity from your investment.
Tips for Caring for Dentures
- Remove your denture or partial after eating and rinse them off. This will keep food debris from accumulating on them.
- Brush your dentures daily in the evening. DO NOT use toothpaste as the abrasiveness will create micro-cuts that will retain bacteria.
- Soak your dentures overnight in water or a solution.
- Never leave your dentures out on the counter or out in the open, especially if you have a pet.
