Dentures are very delicate and may break if dropped. When you are not wearing them, store your dentures away from children and pets. Just like natural teeth – dentures must be brushed daily to remove the deposits and plaque. This will prevent the denture from becoming permanently stained and it also helps your mouth stay healthy. You can buy a denture brush or a regular toothbrush to clean your denture — avoid hard bristled brushes though. You may use a recommended denture cleanser or a mild dishwashing liquid. On denture cleansers — look for the ADA seal of acceptance. It is best not to let the denture dry out completely. When not worn, it is best to keep them in a denture cleanser or in water.
