DeCare Denture Care

Caring for people with full and partial dentures.

Keep your mouth healthy and your dentures in good condition by following a simple daily routine.

Care of Full Dentures

  • Clean your dentures over a bowl of water or a sink full of water.
  • Brush your dentures before soaking them, to help remove bits of food.
  • Use a denture cleaner and toothbrush/nailbrush to remove stubborn stains. (Follow manufacturer€s instructions.)
  • Use a soft toothbrush to clean the tongue and soft tissues.
  • Leave dentures out at night to allow gums to heal.
  • Store dentures in water overnight to protect from drying out. This will reduce fungal infections and warping of denture.

Care of Partial Denture Care

  • Remove partial denture after eating and rinse under running water.
  • Clean all the surfaces of the denture, including clasps and the surface which fits against your gums.
  • Clean your own teeth by brushing for two minutes twice a day with a soft brush and use interdental cleaners, like floss, if directed by your dentist.
  • Cleaning products can damage metal dentures, so talk to your dental team about how to clean them.
  • Do not soak dentures with metal attachments in solutions that contain chlorine, because it can tarnish and corrode the metal.
