It is vey important to properly care for your dentures and partial dentures. It is also important to have them checked periodically. These removable appliances should be cleaned and brushed several times a day, especially after eating. A denture brush or soft bristle toothbrush along with denture cleansing toothpaste can be purchased at any local drug store. Dentures and partials may soak in a denture cleaning solution for a minimum of 15-30 minutes per day. We recommend that dentures and partials be left out of your mouth at night, to allow the oral tissues a chance to rest. If that is not possible try leaving them out for several hours during the day; this would also be a great time to soak your dentures.
