Will my Dentures last forever?
Dentures are made from a very strong plastic material that should survive and work well for up to 5 to 10 years. However, you should still be careful with your dentures, especially while cleaning or removing them from your mouth. Dropping your dentures can result in fracture of the denture base. While fractures can usually be repaired this will create additional costs and inconvenience.

 

How do I keep my Dentures clean?
Dentures should be cleaned daily to keep them from accumulating stains or debris. First, the dentures should be removed and rinsed in lukewarm water. Be careful to not damage the plastic or clasps.While your dentures are out clean your mouth with a soft-bristled toothbrush. If you use a denture adhesive, clear the tissue-side of the denture of any remaining adhesive. Soak or gently brush the dentures with a non-abrasive cleanser to remove food, plaque, or anything else that may have stuck to the teeth. Rinse dentures well after using any kind of solution.

Avoid using abrasive cleaning materials (including stiff-bristled brushes, strong cleansers, etc.), toothpastes of any kind, products containing bleach, and hot water. Any of these things can damage or warp your dentures and using toothpaste can result in the discolouration of the pink acrylic denture base.

 

Can I sleep in my Dentures?
Whether or not you sleep in your dentures is a personal preference. However, nighttime is an optimal time to soak your dentures for cleaning. Dentures should be removed from the mouth for at least 4 hours out of every 24 hours. The oral tissues need an opportunity to breathe and rebound back to normal shape in order to maintain their health.
