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.ACRYLIC DENTURE- FULL FRONT SET
  • 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.istock_000000685496_medium800
  • 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.

  1. My grandma is planning on getting dentures. I had no idea that you should take your dentures out and night to let your gums heal. I’ll have to tell my grandma so that she can take good care of her dentures.
