Granted, your new dentures will need some attention to ensure they continue to serve you well for many years to come. Here are four golden rules for maintaining your new dentures.

Take them out before going to bed

You need to give your dentures a break when you're asleep. This allows your mouth tissues to recover from the strain applied by dentures during the day. If taking out your dentures at night is not possible for you, be sure to remove them for six to eight hours during the day. While your dentures are out, soak them in a vinegar and water solution to help get rid of stains, tartar, plaque and bacteria.

Clean them daily

Even though dentures are simply artificial teeth, they are still prone to many of the things that damage real teeth, such as stains, tartar and bacteria. If plaque is allowed to accumulate on your dentures, it can lead to problems in your gums, such as an irritation or infection. Brush your dentures twice a day with a soft-bristled brush, and be sure to brush them inside and out.

Look after your mouth

If you’re wearing a complete set of dentures, you still need to pay attention to your oral health, especially your gums. Whenever you give your dentures a rest, rinse your mouth and massage your gums with a soft-bristled brush. If you have partial dentures, brush and floss your remaining teeth regularly while making sure to brush your partial dentures as well.

See your dentist

Regular dental visits are an important part of oral health, regardless if you’re wearing dentures or not. Make sure to see your dentist at least twice a year. Doing so can identify potential problems and keep them from developing into serious issues. Your dentist can also provide helpful advice regarding oral hygiene and denture care.
