Always follow the specific instructions your dentist and Michael, your Dental Technician, gives you to take care of your set of dentures, but generally, the following rules apply:
- Brush your dentures daily with proper denture cleaners like polident. Always wash your hands before handling your dentures to avoid infections.
- Be gentle with your dentures, even when cleaning them, to avoid breaking them. When cleaning, ensure you clean them over a sink filled with water so that if you accidentally drop them, they will land in the water and not in the sink or floor; this reduces the chance of breaking your dentures.
- Keep them stored in a container that you use only for your dentures.
