Q.

Putting dentures in water overnight!

When i went to have my dentures fitted, the dentist told me to put them on a glass of water with salf everynight. I have never done this and i've had them for six months. What are the implications of this.

The reason your dentist told you to put the dentures in water overnight was to prevent the acrylic from "drying" out.
Many experts are of the opinion that this is not necessary.
