How to Care For Your Dentures

Caring for your dentures properly is important for the health of your dentures and mouth. Slight daily effort is required to maintain, refreshen, and clean your dentures. Dr. Saini and her staff suggest the following tips to care for your dentures:

  • Remove Your Dentures Every Night: We recommend that patients remove their dentures at night to allow time for your gum tissue to breathe and rest.
  • Handle Your Dentures Carefully: To avoid dropping and breaking your dentures, we recommend that you always hold your dentures over a folded towel or a sink full of water. Any surface that will not crack your dentures when dropped should be fine.
  • Clean Your Dentures Daily: Clean your dentures with a toothbrush and denture cleaner to prevent stains. Do not use toothpaste or household cleaners as they can be too harsh on your dentures.
  • Care For Your Dentures When They’re Not Being Worn:Since dentures can dry out and lose their shape, they must be kept moist at all times. We suggest that you place your dentures in a denture cleanser soaking solution or in water when not being worn. Never place them in hot water as that can cause the dentures to warp.

What to Expect

Adjusting to dentures might take a little time, but with proper upkeep and regular adjustments your dentures will soon feel more natural. Some temporary symptoms you may experience initially are slurred speech, difficulty chewing, excessive salivation, minor gag reflex, and a strange or diminished taste. Our Liverpool, NY dentists suggest eating softer foods to start, and then gradually work your way to firmer foods as you adjust to your dentures.
