How do you care for your dentures?

A regular cleaning routine will make your dentures last longer. It removes plaque, as well as minimising odour. When brushing each night, use a soft-bristle denture brush with water. Scrub gently to remove any loose food particles, make sure you don’t bend any attachments. After cleaning your teeth, leave your dentures in the bathroom to dry as this helps avoid bacterial growth. This ‘rest time’ also helps prevent you from grinding your teeth in your sleep, and gives your mouth a chance to rest. Dentures can be soaked in a denture cleanser – such as creams, pastes, gels or tablets – or cool water. Get advice from us as some soaking solutions aren’t suitable, it could tarnish any partial dentures that have metal attachments.
