Keeping dentures clean is an important part of complete oral hygiene to prevent bacteria & fungus growth and odour causing bacteria. Soak denture daily in warm water with a few drops of dish detergent or your preferred cleaner for 5 to 10 minutes to soften the debris.

  1. line sink with face cloth or fill with water as dentures are breakable
  2. hold denture very carefully
  3. use a special denture brush & paste as ordinary brushes & pastes are too abrasive.
  4. lightly brush & gently taps between teeth to remove debris after every meal
  5. treat the underside the same as the top

First Few Days:

  • positive attitude & patience are required
  • wear as much as possible even while sleeping
  • follow a softer diet than normal
  • put less food in the mouth than normal
  • speak slower then normal
  • use a mirror to practice smiling, chewing & speaking
  • excessive saliva is a normal response & will disappear within a few days
  • if you have excessive discomfort see the denturist for an adjustment

If you have missing teeth see us for a free consultation. You owe it to yourself!

If you are a denture wearer we recommend you see us once a year for a check-up, your furnace or car are seen too!

Changes in mouth conditions are very subtle. The fit of the denture, mouth conditions & the denture itself need to be examined, to avoid costly procedures or surgery in the future.
