At the dental office of Kaitilin Riley DDS, we are pleased to provide dentures that are custom made to be comfortable, aesthetic, and durable. To ensure your dentures last for years to come, we encourage you to consult the following information for proper denture care:
- Clean denture at least once a day, scrubbing it with a clean tooth brush under running water.
- You can use Polident if desired: we do not recommend soaking it all night. Immerse per manufacturer’s instructions for about 15 minutes.
- Alternatively, purchase a bottle of CHX from us, and wipe the denture with a saturated 2×2 gauze pad.
- With a fresh 2×2 gauze, soak it in CHX and massage your tissue. Rub briskly – this is both cleaning and stimulating the tissue.
- You can wear the denture when sleeping (unless directed otherwise by your dentist), or you can leave them out.
- If you have the denture out of your mouth all night, store it with 2-3 tablespoons of water in a closed container. We can provide you with a denture container if you do not have one.
