Advice and tips on caring for your dentures

  • Only your dentist is qualified to diagnose your oral health and adjust your denture or partial.

  • Use denture creams instead of toothpastes, which are too abrasive and will scratch your denture.  Rinse with cold water.

  • Dentures may warp if placed in hot water.

  • Inspect your denture regularly for worn teeth.

  • Worn and stained dentures can make you look older and cause your dentures to function poorly.

    Discuss all your current medications with your doctor and dentist.

  • Be sure to visit your dentist regularly.
