(HealthDay News) -- It's important to take good care of dentures and keep them clean, just like you would your natural teeth.

The American Dental Association offers these suggestions:

  • Brush dentures every day.
  • Before brushing, rinse dentures to remove debris and food particles.
  • Thoroughly brush all areas of your mouth, including your tongue, inside the cheeks, gums and the roof of the mouth.
  • When storing your dentures, make sure they're soaking in water, completely covered, and in a safe spot.
  • If you use an adhesive, follow instructions carefully.
