Diseases reference index «Denture problems»

Ill-fitting dentures can move and cause sore spots. Denture adhesive may help cut down on this movement.

You should always see a dentist if your dentures do not fit correctly.

Other denture tips:

  • Scrub dentures with plain soap and lukewarm water after eating.
  • Dentures should be taken out overnight to prevent sores, infections, and inflammation.
  • Dentures can be left overnight in a denture cleaner.
  • Clean, rest, and massage the gums regularly. Rinsing daily with lukewarm salt water will help clean your gums.
  • Do not use toothpicks when wearing dentures.
