Dentures are essential prosthetic devices for individuals with missing teeth, offering improved oral function and aesthetic appearance. However, like natural teeth, dentures are susceptible to fungal growth, including mold. Mold on dentures not only affects their appearance but can also lead to oral health issues if not addressed promptly and properly. In this guide, we’ll explore the causes of mold on dentures and provide step-by-step instructions on how to safely remove it.

Understanding the Causes of Mold on Dentures

Mold thrives in warm, moist environments, making dentures an ideal breeding ground if not cleaned and stored properly. Several factors contribute to the development of mold on dentures:

  1. Inadequate Cleaning: Improper cleaning of dentures allows food particles and bacteria to accumulate, providing nutrients for mold growth.
  2. Poor Hygiene Habits: Neglecting to clean dentures regularly and thoroughly can lead to microbial buildup, including mold.
  3. Improper Storage: Storing dentures in a damp environment or a poorly ventilated container promotes mold growth.
  4. Extended Wear: Wearing dentures for extended periods without proper cleaning and maintenance increases the risk of mold formation.

Step-by-Step Guide to Removing Mold from Dentures

Follow these steps to safely and effectively remove mold from your dentures:

  1. Preparation:
    • Gather necessary supplies: Denture cleaning solution, soft-bristled toothbrush, denture cleaning tablets, denture cleaner, and a clean towel.
    • Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water before handling your dentures to prevent contamination.
  2. Rinse Dentures:
    • Remove your dentures from your mouth and rinse them under lukewarm water to remove any loose debris and surface mold.
  3. Soak Dentures:
    • Place your dentures in a denture cleaning solution or a mixture of warm water and vinegar for 15-20 minutes to loosen mold and bacteria.
  4. Brush Gently:
    • Using a soft-bristled toothbrush, gently scrub your dentures to remove any remaining mold and stains. Avoid using abrasive cleaners or harsh brushes, as they may damage the denture surface.
  5. Rinse Thoroughly:
    • Rinse your dentures under running water to remove all traces of cleaning solution and debris.
  6. Disinfect:
    • Soak your dentures in a denture cleaning tablet solution as recommended by the manufacturer to disinfect and eliminate any remaining microbes.
  7. Dry Properly:
    • Pat your dentures dry with a clean towel and allow them to air dry completely before storing them in a clean, dry container.
  8. Store Correctly:
    • Store your dentures in a ventilated container or case specifically designed for denture storage to prevent moisture buildup and mold growth.

Preventive Tips to Avoid Mold on Dentures

To prevent mold growth and maintain the hygiene of your dentures, consider the following tips:

  1. Clean your dentures thoroughly after each use using a denture cleaner and a soft-bristled brush.
  2. Remove your dentures before going to bed and soak them overnight in a denture cleaning solution.
  3. Rinse your dentures under running water after eating to remove food particles and debris.
  4. Avoid using hot water or abrasive cleaners on your dentures, as they can damage the acrylic material.
  5. Visit your dentist regularly for denture check-ups and professional cleanings to ensure proper fit and hygiene.


Removing mold from dentures is essential for maintaining oral health and preventing complications associated with fungal infections. By following the steps outlined in this guide and practicing good oral hygiene habits, you can keep your dentures clean, mold-free, and safe for daily use. Remember to consult your dentist if you encounter persistent mold growth or any other concerns regarding your dentures.
