The new material on your denture is a temporary tissue conditioning treatment liner. Do not scrub the liner with anything for the first three days. It is very stick and could gum up pull away from the denture.

After the first three days, you can gently use a soft bristle toothbrush to clean, only if necessary. It is preferred that you only rinse the denture with regular tap water.

Do not use Efferdent tables on liner. It will make the liner bubble up and need to redone.
