Complete dentures are constructed for elderly patients commonly and are specific for patients who are young but have deformed teeth congenitally. Loss of teeth may occur due to trauma, dental diseases, or pathology. The denture hygiene can be improved by polishing of denture’s tissue surface, but this polishing should not affect the prosthesis retentions. If the dentures are not washed regularly, they will have a tendency to accumulate plaque and stains. In this review article, we explan about causes of staining of complete denture and some of methods that are used to clean the denture. The purpose of this article was to review various methods and the materials used for cleaning dentures for geriatric denture wearers.
