Caring for Your Dentures

Daily care and cleaning of your dentures is very important to help keep them looking their best and prevent stains and denture odor. For everyday cleaning, use a soft brush and a cleaning agent, such as soap and water, or products sold especially to clean dentures. Be sure to brush both the inside and outside of your denture. This will help eliminate harmful bacteria. We also suggest soaking your denture in water or a denture cleaning agent when you take them out at night.

To help prevent breakage in the event you accidentally drop your dentures while cleaning them, we strongly recommend that you hold them over a sink filled with water. You may also want to cushion the sink and counter with a soft cloth or towel.
