Denture Care Cleaning Tips

How do I wash my dentures? How often should I clean my dentures? Find out the answer to both of these important denture care questions below!


How Often Should I Wash My Dentures?

Dentures should be cleaned after each meal to keep them free of plaque and tartar. This prevents permanent staining and bad breath. If one is able, brushing the denture is advised, as well as rinsing the mouth to clean it of any debris. If some natural teeth remain, brushing them is advised.

How Do I Clean My Dentures?

Always soak dentures at night after brushing them. Over-the-counter cleaning agents are available. It is healthy to keep the teeth out overnight to avoid excessive pressure on the soft tissue and bone. Whenever your denture is out of your mouth, it should be stored in water.
