Taking Care of Your Dentures
Your denture should give you many years of excellent care if you remember to:
- Be careful how you handle your denture; try not to drop it, or bend the clasps or plastic.
- Remove your denture and rinse it with water to help get rid of food debris.
- Gently clean your mouth with a gauze or toothbrush after you remove your denture.
- Use denture cleanser at least once a day to thoroughly clean your denture.
- Don’t sleep in your denture; remove it and soak it in denture solution to keep it moist.
- Rinse your denture to remove all traces of the soaking solution before you place it in your mouth.
- Avoid using water that is too warm when you clean or rinse your denture. Hot or boiling water can change the shape and the fit of your denture
- Don’t ever use abrasive or harsh chemical agents on your denture and avoid using whitening products or products containing bleach.
- If you damage or break your denture, you can try to fix it temporarily with an over-the-counter repair kit, but it’s best to visit your Long Beach dentist.
Dentures can give you back your smile and enhance your life. Your smile is important to your self-esteem and self-confidence, and a denture can give you the smile you’ve been missing.
