How do I take care of my dentures?

Dentures, like any dental prosthetic, may require a little extra TLC to keep them in good shape.

At Alafaya Center for Cosmetic & Family Dentistry, we want our patients to enjoy many years from their dentures with proper care and maintenance. 

Caring for your dentures and keeping them safe from damage is as easy as:

  • Cleaning them properly–Use a cleaning product that is designed to treat dentures. Regular toothpaste might be abrasive and can damage your dentures. 
  • Keep away from heat—Dentures can handle many different situations and are considered durable, but it is best to keep them away from heat, which can cause them to warp and lose their fit.
  • Keep them safe—Dropping dentures is a common accident that can break the plate of the denture, or even knock a tooth out. If you are cleaning or handling your dentures, we recommend placing a soft towel underneath to protect them if they fall. 
  • Regular visits to see us—Dr. Michaelson can examine your dentures during each dental checkup to make sure that the fit remains snug and nothing is broken or loose. Your dental appointment is a great time to talk about any oral health issues or concerns that you right be experiencing.
