Cleaning Dentures

Removable partial or full dentures require proper care to maintain them clean, free from stains and looking their best. For good denture care:

  • Remove and rinse dentures after eating. Rinse with water over your dentures to remove food debris and other particles. You may need to place a towel on the counter or in the sink or put some water in the sink so the dentures won’t break if you drop them.
  • Handle your dentures carefully. Make sure you don’t bend or damage the plastic or the clasps when cleaning.
  • Clean your mouth after removing your dentures. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush on natural teeth and gauze or a soft toothbrush to clean your tongue, cheeks and roof of your mouth (palate).
  • Brush your dentures at least daily. Gently clean your dentures daily by soaking and brushing with a nonabrasive denture cleanser to remove food, plaque and other deposits. If you use denture adhesive, clean the grooves that fit against your gums to remove any remaining adhesive. Do not use denture cleansers inside your mouth.
  • Soak dentures overnight. Most types of dentures need to remain moist to keep their shape. Place the dentures in water or a mild denture-soaking solution overnight. Check with your denture professionals about storing your dentures overnight. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions on cleaning and soaking solutions.
  • Rinse dentures before putting them back in your mouth, especially if using a denture-soaking solution. These solutions can contain harmful chemicals that cause vomiting, pain or burns if swallowed.
    Schedule regular denture checkups. Your denture professional will advise you about how often to visit to have your dentures examined and professionally cleaned. Your denture professional can help ensure a proper fit to prevent slippage and discomfort,in addition to examination of your gum condition.
