·         Prevent breaks: Dentures are quite delicate and can break if dropped. So while cleaning, make sure you have a folded towel underneath to cushion in case they slip out of your hands.
·         Gentle cleaning: Gently scrub the dentures daily with a soft-bristled toothbrush using a denture cleaner, dish washing liquid or mild soap. Avoid scrubbing aggressively can damage or bend the metal clasps or other components.
·         Soak overnight: As most dentures need to be moist to keep their shape. It is advisable to soak them in water or mild denture solution. Get in touch with your dentist who will provide specific recommendations for soaking.
·         Use products wisely: Avoid using abrasive cleaners and harsh toothpastes such as whitening pastes as they can damage dentures. Also refrain from soaking dentures in bleach or hot water as they can damage the material.
·         Avoid do-it-yourself repairs: In case of any damage to the denture, avoid doing it at home. Take them to your dentist or dental technician who will do it for you.

Good oral hygiene helps avoid problems such as soreness, irritation and infection. Brushing the gums, tongue, palate and any remaining teeth helps remove bacteria and stimulate blood flow to these soft tissues.
