Gross alert!!! Do your dentures get mold between liner and denture?

I clean my dentures with Efferdent soak, and I brush them with or without toothpaste when I brush the nubs still left in my mouth.  But I have seen black areas that look like something is growing between the denture and the liner.  Nothing I try seems to get rid of it.  The only thing I have not tried (using my very new experience with dentures) is soaking them in pure peroxide.  I've used diluted peroxide, and I have brushed them with baking soda.  My dentist was not concerned when I showed him.  But I still have thoughts of some nasty mouth mold growing in my fake teeth. Eewww!  Has Anyone ever had this problem? If so, did you figure out how to get rid of it?
Thank you for letting me gross you out. I have pictures, but wasn't sure how to or even if I should post them. :-)

Not sure. A picture would be helpful.

Soft liner is temporary. Sounds like it's getting stained inside from food etc. Either it didn't secure to the acrylic when it was done or it's slowly starting to wear. I know what you mean by gross. Ask them if they can give it a pumice and polish and if it doesn't seem like it's gone then you should ask for another liner. The first one should be removed! (They should know better and do so). Barb toothpaste and baking soda contain abrasive, not really recommended to clean with. If you've had the soft lining for a while now maybe it's time for a change. It's not the end of the world and shouldn't harm you if you're going to get perms soon. Hope this helps.

I'd ask for a new liner. When I had my immediates and a soft liner, mine started to come off. They replaced it for the exact same reason you are having issues. Possible microbial growth. I didn't have discoloration, either. Also, I purchase a paste that is specifically made for dentures. Walgreens has it or Amazon.

I don't know what you mean by a liner.

A liner is a "soft" material that they put in your dentures to make them fit better. They usually put a soft, gummy material in your dentures, you bite down and hold. They trim off the excess material. It eventually comes off. Mine held until after I received my permanent dentures.

That's great that it held Annie because some places will charge for it. We have only had a couple people come back for a second one.

Josie, mine was starting point fall out. These were my immediates so the fit was awful. Sometimes knowing technical terms helps. I had a good four months before receiving my permanent dentures.

Yes immediates are never "great". My boss makes them and tries his best making an educated decision and with impressions and his skill that they won't be "too" huge while the gums heal. Good thing for the Soft lining. I know it's not the best but I'm glad there's something available to help with through the journey.

I could not afford permanents and they wanted to charge 500 for soft relign. They gave me one free. But never hard relign. Told me my dentures didn't fit so had to have all new ones made. Certainly can't afford that. But, I last 6 months, slowly black color is on roof of uppers. I soak them and brush, but never could get completely removed. Now since the messed up my dentures, I cannot eat with them in. So it is not like food building up or I'm not cleaning enough...or maybe I'm not. Don't know. I really don't want to go back to that dentist. Because I think they will tell me anything and charge a lot. It looks like mold. Sick, right? Totally gross. Anyhow, I would like any info from those if you that may have had this problem before I go to any dentist. I do not trust them anymore. Thank you

I had stored old dentures and they turned black.  I soaked them for about a week in peroxide.  all the black is gone but there are white spots.  I've been wearing them and I use a little peroxide in with the denture cleaner every night.

Soft liners are not permanent! After time they will start to pull away and come apart from chewing! Now that being said this is earth anywhere dark,warm with correct food source bacteria will grow! If you have soft line done and couple days or weeks you see black mold growing means you denture didn’t get a good bond and may need to be replaced, if you noticed after a year well that’s wear from over time! I replace mine often from a simple kit you but at Wally word for 5$ and it’s simple so simple my 10 year old grand daughter could do it in art class for fun!, might be a little gross for her so.... but you get the idea! Just remember clean clean and clean to get the best bond and if you don’t dermal tool from the Same store makes a easy fix to help with that! Crack and holes! Same store has a “fix-it” kit, sick of paying out the nose to have them fixed also live hour away from anywhere to have them fix! Just remember take your time, always Chile cold before mixing “slows down curing time” and clean with rotary tool on slow speed so it grinds and not melts, trust me you can do it if not I’ll have my grand daughter come show you!lol post script clean clean clean!

My dentures have started getting Mildew. And my left foot has been swollen  with no explanation. One dental tech told me that dentures can mildew.  I've seen the same black yuck on mine.  I3m soaking them in almost pure peroxide right now.  But I think the swollen foot had something to do with the mildew. Going to get a realignment Monday, so I'll ask them if I can get sick from it
