What special care do my dentures or partials require?

Dentures and partials require regular daily care -- just like natural teeth. You should clean your dentures daily with a soft brush and a denture cleansing product. Do not use toothpaste because most toothpaste is abrasive and will scratch your dentures. You will need to clean your entire appliance inside and out.  

When your dentures are removed at night, they should be soaked in water or denture cleansing solution. If you allow your dentures or partials to dry out, they can warp or lose their shape.  

Dropping your dentures can cause serious damage to them. While you are cleaning your dentures, you may wish to pad the counter with towels just in case.
