Do you have dentures? If so, you need to do everything you can to keep them in tip-top shape. If you properly care for them, they can replace your missing teeth and give you the results you desire for many years. So, to help you clean and care for your dentures, our dentists, Dr. Lester and Dr. Owens, would like to give you the tips you need. Those denture care tips are:

-Clean your dentures daily: To do so, use a soft-bristled denture brush and water. Don’t use toothpaste. Toothpaste can damage the appliance. As you brush, be careful not to bend any pieces of the denture. You should also rinse your mouth with water after each time you eat to keep them clean and pristine.

-Care for your dentures: When you take your dentures out of your mouth, place a towel in the sink to cushion the denture’s fall if you accidentally drop it. This can reduce your chances of damaging your appliance. You should also let your dentures soak in cool water or denture cleaning solution when you sleep. This keeps the appliance from warping and drying out.

-Remove your dentures every night: This gives your gums the chance to rest while you sleep.
