For patients with missing teeth, dentures provide an alternative to bridges
and oral surgery for dental implants. If you wear dentures, then there
are a few important things to know about giving them proper care.
To help them last long-term, it’s important to handle your dentures
cautiously and to avoid dropping them. Also, you should clean your dentures
with a soft-bristled toothbrush just like you would your normal teeth.
However, avoid using toothpaste, as it may scratch your dentures. Instead,
use a denture cleaning solution. Dentures should remain cool and moist
when they’re not being worn, and your dentist can provide you with
recommendations regarding the best method of storage. Finally, part of
caring for your dentures means caring for your mouth. Be sure to brush
your tongue, gums, and palate with a soft-bristled toothbrush each morning
before wearing your dentures.
