How should I care for my new dentures?
Getting new dentures is a big investment, and it’s important to know how to care for them properly so that they’ll last for a long, long time. Caring for your new dentures is not complicated, and after we’ve completed the process, we’ll provide specific instructions for their care.
Following these simple steps can go a long way toward extending the life of your new dentures and keeping them looking their best:
- Do not use toothpaste or regular dental products. Your dentures need to be cleaned using only products specifically made for denture care.
- Using hot water to clean, rinse, or soak your dentures may cause them to lose their shape.
- When you are not wearing your dentures, place them in warm water to keep them moist.
- Handle your dentures carefully to avoid cracking or breaking them. When cleaning them, hold your dentures over a soft surface padded with towels to prevent them from slipping from your wet hands.
