Caring for Your Denture After a Rebase

At Linda Veal Denture Clinic, we understand the importance of maintaining your denture after a rebase. By following these tips, you can keep your denture in great shape:

Tips

  • Follow the denturist’s instructions: Your denturist will provide you with specific care instructions after your denture rebase. It’s essential to follow these instructions carefully for the best outcome. They may include recommendations on avoiding certain foods or activities temporarily.
  • Thoroughly rinse your denture: After eating or drinking, make sure to rinse your denture thoroughly to remove any food particles or debris. Use warm water and a soft-bristled brush for cleaning. Avoid using hot water or abrasive cleaners, as they can damage the denture.
  • Soak your denture overnight: Soaking your denture in a denture cleaning solution overnight can help keep it clean and fresh. Follow the instructions provided with the cleaning solution for safe and effective use.
  • Handle your denture with care: Dentures can be fragile, so it’s important to handle them gently. When removing your denture, avoid pulling or twisting it. Use both hands to remove it, holding it by the base rather than the teeth.
  • Maintain oral hygiene: Proper oral hygiene is crucial for healthy gums and preventing infections. Brush your remaining teeth and gums twice a day and floss once a day. Consider using an antiseptic mouthwash to eliminate bacteria and keep your breath fresh.
  • Schedule regular checkups: Regular visits to the denturist are important for monitoring gum health and the fit of your denture. Our team at Linda Veal Denture Clinic is dedicated to providing the best care for our clients, and we offer the first year of adjustments for free to ensure the best fit
  • Be mindful of your diet: To prevent damage to your denture, avoid hard or sticky foods such as nuts, popcorn, caramel, and chewing gum. Opt for softer alternatives like cooked vegetables, fruits, and lean meats.
  • Proper denture storage

Properly store your denture: When not wearing your denture, store it in a clean, dry container with a lid. Avoid leaving it out where it can collect dust or debris. Keeping your denture moist when not in use helps prevent warping or cracking.
