Having dentures does not mean that you can ignore your oral health and oral hygiene. It is still important to seek dental services regularly for evaluating the soft tissues and to examine your denture for proper fit, comfort, and function.

Daily cleaning of your denture is necessary to prevent build-up of plaque, food, calculus (tartar), and stain.

Not only do your dentures need maintenance, but care also needs to be given to the tissues under your denture. It is also very important to keep any remaining natural teeth free of plaque.
