So you’re new to removable dental plates or dentures. These are great ways to replace lost or missing teeth, but you have to take very good care for them to make them last for a long time. After all, they’re a big investment for your appearance, health, and overall quality of life.

Whether you have full or partial removable dental plates, it is important to heed your dentist’s instructions on how to properly care for your new dentures. After all, these are for your comfort and beautiful smile—as well as for the longevity of your new dental plates.

  • Don’t forcibly remove or put on your dentures
  • Start with soft foods when eating with your new dentures and chew on both sides
  • If your mouth is sore due to new dental plates, call your dentist immediately for adjustments
  • Soak your dentures in white vinegar dissolved in water to remove tartar build-up
