Initial Consultation is Key

In Dr. Perry’s view, the most important part of the patient care process is the initial consultation.

Caring For Your Dentures

To help you care for your new dentures, Dr. Perry offers several tips:

  • Your dentures should always be removed at night for cleaning, allowing the tongue and saliva to provide stimulation and cleansing for your gums.
  • Never leave dentures and bridges to dry out. Soak them in a warm water solution overnight. Hot water should be avoided because it can cause dentures to warp.
  • Your appliance can be cleaned with a special denture brush and liquid soap or non-abrasive denture paste, but toothpaste is too harsh and can harm dentures.
  • Over-the-counter denture cleanser products can be used to remove stains, or you can soak dentures in a cup of water with a teaspoon of household bleach. Be sure to rinse them thoroughly before putting them into your mouth.
  • When cleaning dentures, it is best to do so over a forgiving surface, such as a sink full of water. Dropping your dentures on a hard tile floor can cause them damage.
  • For implant-retained dentures, you should also use a soft brush to clean around the implant attachments on the appliance.
