Having and Using Custom Dentures

  • Use a denture brush with a mild soap or denture cleaner to clean them. Never use regular toothpaste as it is too abrasive. Rinse them well after cleaning.

  • Clean your gums and natural teeth with a soft toothbrush twice a day.

  • Always remove your dentures before going to sleep. This helps to avoid them dislodging while you are asleep or causing any damage through clenching or grinding of the jaw.

  • Submerge your dentures in warm water to keep them from drying out overnight.

  • For dentures without metal components, use a denture-soaking solution to clean them effectively.
