    The care of a Cu-sil denture is somewhat different from a conventional denture or partial denture because of the elastomeric gaskets used for retention. The manufacturer recommends specific cleaners for this type of material. Information can be found on the Cu-sil website.

    Also you must be very careful in handling to Cu-sil material to avoid damaging it. If it is damaged, it may become less retentive and also cause gingival inflammation and irritation.

    As with any partial denture, I recommend seeing your dentist every six months for a check-up and dental cleaning. The Cu-Sil is used for teeth that are loose or broken down, so these teeth often need to be removed over time and can be added to the partial denture.
