How to maintain my denture?
- The denture has to be rinsed with water to remove any food particles. Use a non-abrasive toothpaste and soft bristle toothbrush (to avoid any scratching) to clean the denture.
- Clean your mouth thoroughly during brushing – including your gums, lips, and tongue to clear any plaque.
- Place the dentures in a container filled with water to prevent them from changing shape when you do not wear your dentures.
- Dental wearers may sometimes use adhesives. Adhesives are available in many forms: creams, powders, sheets, strips, and liquids. Please read the instructions and use them exactly as instructed when using one of these items. Dr. Adatrow will prescribe the right denture cleansers or adhesives for you. Our dental team will provide you with all the instructions for your denture maintenance.
