How Do I Take Care of My Dentures?

Dentures should be brushed after every meal.  Although, in our fast paced world, this is not always possible.  Even if you can rinse them and your mouth, it will be beneficial.  However, at least once per day, your dentures need a good brushing with a soft bristle brush and non-abrasive tooth paste.

Soaking them at night is mandatory.  This will allow you to sterilize your denture and allow the oral tissue to get the rest they need.  Remember to always brush and rinse your dentures BEFORE soaking them for the night.

Also, keep in mind, that just because your mouth is pain free, do not assume that you are not losing bone tissue!  Most of the damage occurs before symptoms develop!  Call us today to have your tissues checked
