Is it relatively easy to remove the adhesive from the denture? I've already read horror stories about removing it from your mouth and wondered if it was just as bad when removing from the denture.

The longer the denture is in, the more has dissolved. Each brand has it own cleaner to soak them in. Follow directions some are faster acting than others. Use a soft tooth brush if any residue. This part is usually easier than the mouth.

I was told not to use regular toothpaste on dentures as it is too abrasive . Couldn't find denture paste in the stores so bought from Amazon.

Some suggest using vegetable oil, coconut oil or gummy candies. I've also read that some use paper towels or clean washcloth.

I started out using my fingernails and then my toothbrush and toothpaste, now I use the Clean It cloths (order on Amazon) and then swish my mouth with equal parts blue listerine (any mouthwash WITH alcohol ) and then I brush my gums & tongue. If you are using Secure adhesive, DO NOT rinse down the drain.

Good luck!

We have some great tips for cleaning your dentures! Here are some helpful hints:
  • Clean your dentures every day. Cleaning dentures daily with a denture brush and soaking them in a cleanser solution will help keep your dentures looking white and bright, while preventing plaque buildup and denture odor.
  • Rinse and brush your dentures in clean, warm water with a denture brush.
  • When cleaning dentures, don't brush too hard; you don't want to damage any plastic or metal parts of the dentures. If needed, moisten the denture brush to avoid damages or scratches to the denture surface.
  • Brush your gums, tongue, and natural teeth with a fluoride toothpaste, such as Crest®, before reinserting your dentures. This will help remove plaque from your teeth, stimulate circulation in your mouth, and help maintain good oral health.
  • After brushing, rinse with a mouthwash, such as Scope®, to give your mouth a refreshed feeling.
If you have any questions about the above, please let us know. Thanks!

I don't even try to remove the adhesive from my dentures. I just put them in to soak and eventually (usually no less than 1 hour, but sometimes overnight) when I take them out, I brush using a denture brush and rinse in cold water.
