Brush and rinse your dentures daily. Like natural teeth, dentures must be brushed daily to remove food and plaque. Brushing also helps prevent the development of permanent

stains on the dentures. Use a brush with soft bristles that is specifically designed for cleaning dentures. Gently brush all surfaces of the denture and be careful not to damage the plastic

or bend attachments. In between brushings, rinse your dentures after every meal.

Clean with a denture cleaner. Hand soap or mild dishwashing liquid can be used for cleaning dentures. Household cleansers and many toothpastes may be too abrasive for your dentures

and should not be used. Also, avoid using bleach, as this may whiten the pink portion of the denture. Ultrasonic cleaners can be used to care for dentures. These cleaners are small

bathtub-like devices that contain a cleaning solution. The denture is immersed in the tub and then sound waves create a wave motion that dislodges the undesirable deposits. Use of an ultrasonic cleaner, however, does not replace a thorough daily brushing.

Bone Resorption When all or some of your teeth are missing, the jawbone is not being stimulated and as a result the area of bone in which teeth are missing deteriorates

rapidly. In addition, as the bone shrinks away your muscles migrate, or pull back from their natural position. Complete tooth loss and the deterioration of the jawbone can also result in significant overall health problems related to improper digestion,

from not being able to chew your food properly. Over time, as the bone shrinks as

facial structures continue to collapse, and the dentures must be made thicker to compensate for additional bone loss.


Your lips cave in as they lose support and wrinkles increase dramatically as your

facial structures collapse. This leads to the appearance of jowls and witch’s chin.

Dental implants act as artificial tooth roots and since the bone actually bonds to the titanium in the dental implant, they serve the same function as the natural tooth roots, providing continued bone stimulation and stable foundation, as well as helping to prevent the related health problems that would normally occur with complete tooth loss. Replacing your teeth with implant supported overdentures will preserve the bone

and prevent the further deterioration of facial structures.

Use a brush with soft bristles that is specifically designed for cleaning dentures. Avoid using a hard-bristled brush as it can damage or wear down dentures. Gently brush all surfaces of the denture and be careful not to damage the plastic or bend attachments. In between brushings, rinse your dentures after every meal.

Not only can dentures restore your smile, but also they can make it easier to eat. Dentures are used to replace a person’s natural teeth when their teeth must be removed, are decayed, or if they fall out as the result of an accident or disease. Some people need to have a full set of false teeth to replace all or most of their natural teeth. Other people can achieve results with a partial set.


There are two types of dentures available, conventional and immediate. Those who receive immediate teeth can have them inserted soon after you have your teeth surgically removed. This product is acceptable for people who do not want to be without their teeth for a period of time. You may need to have other follow-up visits with your dentist to have the new teeth adjusted and refitted. Your dentist will closely monitor the teeth, and you should tell him or her if you experience any pain or discomfort. In both cases, you should also let the dentist know if you find that your dentures are ill fitting.


You must remove your false teeth periodically so that they can be cleaned. You can brush them as you brush your natural teeth, but they should also sit in water to keep them moist. Most people take their false teeth out at night and place them in water, so they can soak as they sleep. Brushing them cleans stains and soaking them overnight in a cleanser can also help remove stubborn stains. The false teeth can last a long time when they are cared for, but they can crack or chip if they fall onto a hard surface.
