Soak in approved denture cleaners, such as Polident or Efferdent Soak in mouthwash — this may cause discoloration to the teeth
Brush your dentures AT LEAST once daily, twice if you can. Use room temperature water, a soft-bristled brush, and denture cleaning solution Scrub with toothpaste or other abrasive materials or chemicals. NEVER boil to cleanse — hot water can warp the material, causing permanent damage
