Taking Good Care of Your Dentures

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.
