denture removal

  • Swish your mouth with warm water or a mouthwash, ideally an alcohol-free mouth wash such as Oral-B®. Fill the sink with warm water to avoid breaking the dentures if they are dropped.
  • To remove your top denture, place your thumb against your front teeth and press upward and outward toward your nose. To remove your lower denture, slowly pull on your denture while applying a rocking motion.
  • Be sure to keep your dentures moist when you aren't wearing them. This will keep them from drying out and losing their shape. Store your dentures in a denture cleanser soaking solution or in water. Never place your dentures in hot water. This can cause them to warp.
  • If your denture has metal attachments, talk to your dentist about how it should be cared for. Placing this particular denture in water can cause the metal pieces to tarnish.
