Complete Dentures FAQ
How do I clean my dentures?
When cleaning your dentures, you should first rinse away loose food particles thoroughly. Then moisten your toothbrush and apply denture cleanser. Brush every surface, scrubbing gently to avoid damage.
How many times a day does the denture need to be cleaned?
The denture needs to be cleaned two to three times daily with a soft bristled brush.
What constitutes good oral hygiene when I have full dentures? In addition to taking care of your dentures, taking care of your mouth also is vital if you wear full dentures. This includes brushing your gums, tongue, and palate every morning with a soft-bristled brush before inserting your dentures. This stimulates your tissues and helps remove plaque.
Do dentures need to be replaced?
Dentures will need to be relined, remade, or based due to normal wear over a period of time and normal shrinkage of your gums and bones.
What should I do if my dentures crack or break?
Call your dentist immediately. Normally, dentures can be repaired quickly, often on the same day at the office. Damaged dentures can cause additional oral health problems, so you need to see your dentist right away. Never attempt to repair dentures yourself. They require professional repair and adjustment to fit your mouth.
Why can't cracked dentures be fixed with glue?
Glues often contain harmful chemicals and are not effective in the proper repair of dentures
