Upon finalising and delivery of the prosthesis the patient will be instructed how to maintain it.
Maintenance is important to the life span of the product. Every day when removing the prosthesis in the evening give it a light brush with warm water and a soft dish washing liquid using a soft toothbrush around the retention system. Removing it each evening and sleeping without it is good for the defect area to ventilate and the skin to breath.
Each prosthesis maintenance may be different as the retention systems vary.
