How Should I Care For My Dentures?

Other Common Questions About Denture Care

Many professional dentists recommend replacing dentures as often as every five years. Generally, the frequency of replacement is dependent on your gums, the ridges in your mouth, and your age.
You could experience difficulty speaking when you first start wearing your dentures. However, once your mouth and tongue get accustomed to your new dentures, you will be back to talking regularly. It is essential to be patient during the adjustment period.
Your custom made dentures are specifically made to fit your mouth. Denture adhesives are only used to provide additional comfort and confidence in your smile.


Do not clean your dentures using boiling water. This could cause them to warp. Be sure to rinse them in cold or lukewarm water.
Toothpaste and toothbrushes that are abrasive can dull your dentures over time and cause premature wear and tear. For gentle and effective daily cleaning, remember to use a denture brush that has soft bristles and a non-abrasive denture cleaner.
