Denture Care

Caring for Your Dentures

Daily care and cleaning of a new denture is very important to help maintain good dental health. For everyday cleaning, use a soft brush and a cleaning agent, such as soap and water, or products sold especially to clean dentures. Be sure to brush both the inside and outside of your denture. This will help eliminate harmful bacteria. We also suggest soaking your denture in water or a denture cleaning agent when you take them out at night.

We strongly recommend you hold your dentures over a sink filled with water when you are cleaning your denture. This will help to prevent breakage if the denture is accidentally dropped. You may also want to cushion the sink and counter with a soft cloth or towel.
