It is important that you remember to take all of your personal belongings with you when leaving hospital, including dental consumables and aids.
To ensure you don’t lose your dentures or personal belongings while you are in hospital, it is recommended you keep them safely stored in a secure place, such as your bedside locker. It is also worth labelling your personal belongings.
Dentures are easily lost if wrapped in a tissue and left on top of your bedside locker or in your pocket. Ask a staff member for a denture container, which will be clearly labelled for you.
