Denture Care


  • Clean your dentures daily
  • Do not use toothpaste or other cleaners, they are abrasive and can damage dentures
  • Take your dentures out for at least 4 hours every day to keep the rest of your mouth healthy
  • Continue to see your dentist to keep your dentures fitting properly and your mouth healthy
