Do I need to care for my dentures (or false teeth)?
Yes. Treat your partial or complete dentures in the same manner that you care for natural teeth. They should be cleaned each night and put in water. If there are any changes in the way your dentures fit your mouth you should see a dental professional. Be sure to use toothpaste specifically designed for dentures, to avoid scratching the surface. Scratches can allow bacteria to hide and flourish. Never use household bleach or cleaners to clean dentures.
