Dentures can replace one or all of your teeth for a healthy and confident smile. If you wear dentures, proper care will keep them in good condition for years to come. Your dentures should be removed every night and stored in denture solution while you sleep. Place your dentures in a safe location where they cannot be damaged by children or pets. Rinse your dentures after every meal and brush your dentures at least twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and gentle soap or toothpaste to keep them clean and free of food particles. You can also ask your dentist for recommendations if you’re having trouble choosing the right products. If you have remaining natural teeth, clean them with a different toothbrush than the one you use to brush your dentures. Be sure to continue visiting your dentist for exams and denture adjustments to ensure your dentures are in good shape and fit in your mouth properly.
