Relax Those Gums.

Take your dentures out before going to bed. This will help relax and ease your gums overnight from the pressure and compression from the dentures throughout the day. If taking the dentures out is not an option, try to remove them for couple hours throughout the day.

Clean Them Daily.

All dentures — whether it be complete or partial dentures require regular cleaning just like natural teeth. Brush your dentures with a soft regular brush gently. Mildly abrasive toothpaste may be used to give that minty taste. Denture cleaning solutions are a good alternative for removing stains and tartar build up on the dentures.

Know Your Mouth.

Check your mouth for signs of irregular bumps and lumps. Consult with your dentist/denturist as they will examine your oral tissues for any signs of abnormality.

It’s Not Fitting as it Used To.

If you feel like your dentures are not fitting right, consult with your denturist right away. The gums and bones in our mouth change all the time, which can lead to an ill-fitting denture. This can lead to soreness on the gums and other issues.

It’s Difficult to Chew/Grind Food.

Most likely the surfaces of your denture teeth are worn down. Worn teeth will prevent you from chewing or grinding food into smaller pieces, which can lead to indigestion. A good, nutritious diet will help keep your mouth healthy.
