Hi, wow, you cannot make up the story you just wrote about!!

The best way to remove mold from a denture is to use either white vinegar and water in 50-50 or bleach and water in a 50-50 ratio. The bleach will not poison you so you do not have to worry about that. Be sure to rinse your denture with water several times after using either of these techniques. Another possible treatment is to call you dentist for some Nystatin which is an antifungal medication which will also remove the mold on a denture. This is a prescription drug that can be called in for you without being seen. This should take care of your problem!! :):)

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
