Clean your dentures every day. Cleaning daily with a denture brush and soaking in a cleanser solution will help keep your dentures looking white and bright, while preventing plaque build-up and denture odor. Remove your denture(s) at least once per day for at least 1 hour. Many patients prefer to sleep without them in place. When dentures are not in place, leave them in air (not in water). Leaving them in mouthwash is likely to discolor them.
Rinse and brush your dentures in clean warm water with a denture brush.
Don't brush too hard; after all you don't want to damage any plastic or metal parts of the denture. If needed, moisten the denture brush to avoid damages or scratches to the denture surface.
Brush your gums, tongue, and any natural teeth with a fluoride toothpaste before reinserting your dentures. This will help remove plaque from your teeth, stimulate circulation in your mouth, and help maintain good oral health.
After brushing, rinse with a mouthwash to give your mouth a refreshing feeling.
Never try to adjust your dentures yourself. This may cause harm to your mouth or damage to your denture.
