Denture Care Do’s and
Dont’s

Nearly 50 percent of Americans ages 65 and older have lost six or more teeth – and 20 percent have lost all of them. Fortunately, there are many options for replacing lost teeth, whether it’s a few, or all. However, even if the teeth are artificial, they still need some TLC. Here are a few tips for denture wearers.

Cleaning
Full and partial dentures should be removed and cleaned every day. It’s best to use a brush and cleanser that are specifically designed for cleaning dentures, not your regular toothpaste. You should also avoid cleansers that are too harsh or abrasive. If you have a partial denture, remove it before brushing your natural teeth. Don’t clean or sterilize any denture in boiling water – it could result in damage to the device.1

Storage
When not wearing dentures, keep them in a safe place, out of reach of curious children and playful pets. Soak them in a cleansing solution or water.1

Whether you have a partial denture, a full set of dentures, a bridge, or implants, continue to see your dentist regularly.1 He or she can make sure that everything continues to fit comfortably and properly.
