Dentures should be removed at night and placed in a glass of water.

Dentures should be cleaned daily using liquid dishwashing soap and a soft nailbrush.

One can also use tooth paste and a specially made denture brush sold at pharmacies.

Rinse thoroughly with lots of tap water.

Dentures must be sterilised weekly using a propriety tablet e.g. Corega, sold at pharmacies.

Or, dentures can be sterilised once weekly by placing a tablespoon of household chlorine in a glass of water and left for one (1) hour. NOT OVERNIGHT. Afterwards rinse dentures well with lots of tap water. White vinegar can also be used instead of household bleach.

Remember to always work over a basin filled with some water so that if you drop your dentures they will land on water and not break!!!
