So, you have dentures?
Here is how to care for your new denture.

Dentures can make a huge difference in your smile.  You can look better, feel better and eat better.  It is important to properly care for your denture and your mouth.  Here are some of our office‘s favorite home care instructions for your denture.

Care of your Denture and your Mouth:

  1. If you get any sore areas, a very soothing mouth rinse can be made by mixing ¼ tsp baking soda, 1/8 tsp salt, with 1 cup very warm water. Use frequently.
  2. Clean your denture with a denture brush and liquid soap. Clean your gums with a soft brush and mouth rinse or water.  Don’t forget to clean your whole mouth and your tongue.
  3. Do not try to adjust your own denture. Your denture could become loose if too much is removed!
  4. Call our office to schedule an appointment to adjust your denture. Wear the denture for at least four hours prior to your adjustment appointment so that we can see the sore areas and adjust your denture more accurately.
