After you receive your appliance, Dr. Joshua Rice will provide you with instructions on how to care for your dentures. Properly caring for your dentures will help ensure that they stay in good condition and continue to function correctly. If you have any questions about denture care in Medford, Oregon, or to schedule an appointment with our dentist, please call Cascade Dental at 541-779-6401. Caring for your dentures properly is key to ensuring that they continue to fit and function properly. When you receive your dentures, our dentist will provide you with instructions on the best ways to care for your dentures.
Here are a few recommendations on the best ways to care for your appliance:
  • Do not try to make adjustments to your dentures on your own. Only dental professionals are qualified to diagnose problems and make adjustments, and you may cause damage to the denture or your mouth if you try to adjust it yourself.
  • Follow all instructions provided by our dentist regarding wearing and cleaning your dentures.
  • Brush your dentures daily. Be sure to brush all surfaces.
  • When brushing your dentures, use a denture cream. Toothpaste is abrasive and can scratch your appliance.
  • Rinse your dentures in cold water. Do not use hot water or put your appliance in the dishwasher, as this may cause them to warp out of shape.
  • Inspect your appliance regularly for wear and other damage that can cause them to function poorly.
  • When not wearing your dentures, cover them in water or with a denture cleaning solution so that they do not dry out.
We also recommend that you schedule regular appointments with our dentist for denture maintenance so that we can ensure your appliance is functioning correctly and that your mouth is healthy. Please also be sure to tell our dentist about any medications you are taking, as some types of medication affect your oral health and may impact the fit and function of your denture. If your dentures are loose or broken, schedule an appointment to have them checked as soon as possible. Loose dentures can cause friction and place pressure on your gum and bone tissue and may cause damage to your mouth if not adjusted. If you have any questions about denture care or wish to schedule an appointment with our caring dentist, please contact our office today.
