Caring for your dentures on a daily basis can heighten your sense of well-being and compliment your appearance. In addition, clean dentures can help keep the tissues in your mouth healthy and free from problems. Your dentures have been fabricated using high quality materials and it is extremely important that you give them proper care to get the best service from them.
Using a soft denture brush and warm water is the most effective and safe method to clean your dentures. If done on a daily basis, this should keep your dentures clean and free from damage. If there are persistent accumulations and/or stains that are difficult to remove, overnight immersion using a commercial denture cleanser is recommended.
1. Clean the iDenture daily using a soft denture brush and warm water. The use of a non-abrasive denture cream is suggested. Regular toothpastes are not recommended for daily use. They may abrade and contribute to the loss of luster of the denture teeth and base.
2. Clean your natural teeth thoroughly with a toothbrush, toothpaste, special toothpicks or interdental brushes to remove plaque. Don’t forget to gently brush the parts of the gums that are covered by the denture.
3. Unless your dentist has instructed you otherwise, you should not wear your partial iDenture overnight.

To prevent your iDenture from becoming damaged, please note the following points:
• Simply immersing your denture in a cleaning solution is inadequate for removing the micro-organisms that live in plaque. You must brush your denture every day.
• Do not immerse or try to clean your denture with pure alcohol or solvent solutions.
• Do not use detergents or dishwashing agents.
• Never clean your denture with hot or boiling water.
• If you notice stubborn signs of plaque on your denture ask your dental practitioner to clean the denture professionally. Scraping instruments will damage the denture.
Your iDenture has been custom-made for you.
Your iDenture will retain its shape, while your mouth will undergo certain changes. As a result, you should have the fit of your iDenture checked by your dentist on a regular basis, for example, every 6 months. If you encounter any discomfort, do not try to resolve the problem yourself, as you may damage your iDenture as well as harm your teeth and gums.
The use of adhesives can make the iDenture difficult to clean and used on a regular basis can cause damage. Only use adhesives according to the directions of your dentist for a limited period of time. Please consult your dentist if you have any questions about your iDenture.
