When it comes to caring for your dentures, there are three main tips to add to your routine to keep your denture in great condition.
While your denture is durable and built to last, it’s important to always handle with care, especially when cleaning it. Too much pressure or harsh scrubbing can wear down or break your denture.
After eating with your denture or storing your denture overnight, rinse your denture. Remember, cleaning and denture storing solutions are not intended for your mouth, so rinse it with water to keep your mouth happy and healthy.
After eating: gently brush your denture with a soft brush to remove debris.
To preserve the durability, shape and fit of your denture, it needs moisture. So, whenever you’re not using it, store it in water, or clean it and store it in denture-storing solution before sleeping. Never sleep with it in unless instructed by your dentist.
