Good oral hygiene keeps mouth, gums, and teeth healthy. Well cared for dentures are just as important to a healthy mouth as natural teeth. For this reason, dentures should be cleaned and maintained just as often as natural teeth. As a caregiver, you may be required to assist those who have difficulty performing oral hygiene tasks such as cleaning dentures. Some may only require gentle encouragement and verbal cues, while others may require you to fully perform the denture cleaning. This course has been prepared with this objective in mind. This course corresponds to the Federal regulations F310, F311, F312, G226, & L543.
