Dentures are removable appliances that can replace missing teeth and help restore your smile. Complete dentures can either be “conventional” or “immediate”. Replacement of your natural teeth due to gum disease, tooth decay or injury can help benefit your face and profile and your overall health.

Like your teeth, dentures should be brushed daily to remove food particles and plaque.

Conventional dentures are made after your teeth are removed and the gum tissue has begun to heal. It is then ready for placement about 8-12 weeks after your teeth have been removed.

Immediate dentures are made in advance and can be positioned as soon as the teeth have been removed. Although immediate dentures are more convenient allowing the patient to have teeth upon immediate removal of natural teeth, due to the healing process of the gums, they do require more adjustments. Immediate dentures should only be considered a temporary solution until conventional dentures can be made.

  1. Rinse your denture with water and brush away plaque and food debris (once to twice daily).
  2. Place denture into a cleaning solution to continue the cleansing and disinfecting process.
  3. While the denture is soaking, use a dampened washcloth or very soft toothbrush, to wipe the inside of the mouth. Make sure to wipe the ridges (where dentures sit), tongue, lips, cheeks and roof of your mouth. Use a soft toothbrush and make sure to clean all the teeth and tissues in your mouth thoroughly. This should be done at least once or twice each day.
  4. Remove denture from soaking solution and using a moistened denture brush or regular soft bristled toothbrush, gently clean inside of denture, outside of denture and teeth.
  5. Thoroughly rinse and return to your mouth.
  6. We recommend that you remove the denture/partial. This allows the tissue to breathe and heal by removing the pressure that is placed on the gums and tissues. Dentures/partials should be kept in water when out of the mouth to prevent drying out of the materials, which can cause distortion.
