Denture problems


  • Avoid toothpicks when wearing dentures.
  • If your dentures don't fit perfectly, denture adhesive may be helpful for well-fitting dentures. For ill-fitting dentures, denture adhesive may irritate the gums, and you may need to see your dentist.
  • Scrub dentures with plain soap and lukewarm water after eating.
  • Clean, rest, and massage the gums regularly. Rinsing daily with lukewarm salt water will help clean your gums.
  • For gum problems see gingivitis .
