temporary denture care


  • The purpose of your temporary denture is for space maintenance and esthetics during your healing time. It is not a your permanent functional dental restoration. The doctor will instruct you on how long to wear it daily.

  • Please be mindful to eat softer foods while wearing your denture. Do not bite into anything hard, crunchy or chewy on the denture.

  • Remove the denture carefully, avoiding to pull on the denture tooth or metal clasps. Pull evenly from right to left side of the denture base.

  • Clean your denture with a denture cleaner or non-abrasive toothpaste. Use a soft bristle toothbrush to gently clean the surface. Rinse your denture thoroughly in cold to tepid water. Please avoid hot water, it may deform your denture.

  • We will reline your temporary denture 2x within the first SIX MONTHS as a courtesy. Charges for relining will apply thereafter.
