In brief: Soak it....

We recommend cleaning the partial with a soft brush and a small amount of toothpaste.
We then recommend soaking the partial in fresh water with a new denture tablet. This will keep the partial from getting a poor odor, from getting stained, and from obtaining an accumulation of tartar....

In brief: Clean them

I hate to see people take clean dentures, partial or complete, out at night.
If you are missing your posterior teeth your mouth will collapse at night making a smaller airway to breathe through at night.

In brief: Out of mouth

Leave out of your mouth overnight so the tissues can rest and get filled up with fluid again.
Best to brush denture with toothpaste, then soak in effervescent antibacterial cleaner (ex. Efferdent). If you have pets, put out of their reach.

In brief: Water

Always put your partial denture in a cup full of water and let it soak whenever it is not in your mouth.
