To clean your dentures, the general rule is: brush every day and soak at least once a week.
Brush your dentures with a non-abrasive denture cleaner, not toothpaste. Make sure you
brush all the surfaces of the dentures, including the surface that fits against your gums.
This is especially important if you use any kind of denture adhesive.
Soak your dentures in a denture-cleaning solution. This will help remove any plaque and
stubborn stains that are left. It will also help to disinfect your dentures, leaving them
If your denture has metal parts, do not use anything that contains bleach, as it will yellow
the acrylic of your denture and turn the metal black.
Remember even if you do not have any teeth left it is important for you to go to your
dental team for regular check-ups and oral cancer examinations to make sure that your
mouth stays healthy.
