How to Clean Dentures
Clean all of the Denture surface every day, taking care to remove any denture adhesives on a daily basis, including any parts that come into contact with your gums. To remove food debris, use a denture cream with a specially designed denture brush, and then soak your dentures in a specialist solution to keep them fresh. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions for use.
Why do I need to clean my Dentures on a daily basis?
A normal and healthy oral cavity harbours hundreds of bacterial species that can aggravate infection and cause oral inflammation, so keeping your Dentures clean on a daily basis is essential for good oral hygiene.
Conventional toothpastes are not suitable for cleaning dentures and may cause permanent damage your Dentures, but there are many Denture Cleaners available. It is very important to keep your dentures clean with the appropriate denture cleaners, and you should never use bleach or boiling water.
When to wear your Dentures
We do recommend that you leave your dentures out at night. This allows your gum tissues to rest and have normal stimulation by the tongue and saliva. You should also remove and brush your dentures daily.

Having completely given up on dentist after many a bad experience it came to the point where I needed to find a solution as my teeth became loose and we're falling out, this coupled with being very very nervous led me on my search.I discovered Lee and his company on the Internet and thought their is the face of a man I can trust! Ask my wife I'm not right about much but this decision was probably the best and most spot on decision I have ever made.Firstly Lee is a gentleman and very caring person and secondly he is probably the best denture maker in Hampshire if not the country.His partner in crime Ed once again I found to be the best dentist I have ever received u treatment from and I have seen a few, Ed is a TOP MAN and wonderfully caring and competent Dentist. My absolute fear of Dentists has gone as I have fantastic new dentures and a winning smile the perfect Solution from a fantastic Team! Thanks a million to all the team especially Lee & Ed." Mr. Bunday
