Dentures and other removable
dental prosthesis will provide many
years of service with proper care.
The following are guidelines for the
care and maintenance of dentures.
Dentures should be cleaned daily
by soaking and brushing with an
effective, nonabrasive denture
cleanser. They should ONLY be
cleaned outside the mouth, then
thoroughly rinsed before replacing in
Dentures should be cleaned yearly
by a dentist or dental professional who
uses an ultrasonic cleanser to decrease
biofi lm accumulation over time.
Never place a denture in boiling
water or a microwave.
Don’t soak dentures in bleach or
products containing sodium hypochlo-rite
(bleach) for more than 10 minutes.
Dentures should be stored immersed
in water after cleaning when not being
worn to avoid warping.
Denture adhesives when properly
used can improve the retention and
stability of dentures and help prevent
food accumulation under the denture
even in well fi tting dentures.
Denture adhesives should be
removed from the prosthesis and oral
cavity on a daily basis.
It is not recommended that den-tures
be worn continuously (to give
the gum tissues a chance to “rest”).
Dentures wearers should be
checked annually by a dentist or den-tal
professional for maintenance, fi t
and function and for evaluation of oral
cancer and general oral health status.
