Dentures Post-Op Instructions

Denture Care

Once you have received your dentures, we will provide you with instructions to help you adjust to wearing them and keep them clean and in good condition. 

It’s normal for your dentures to feel awkward when you first start wearing them. You may experience changes in your speech and feel that your mouth is too full. But don’t worry, as your mouth adjusts to wearing your dentures, these problems will lessen.

It’s crucial to care for your dentures by cleaning them after every meal. You should use a soft brush and cleaning paste or soapy water. You should also remove your dentures for at least six hours each day to allow your gums to rest. We recommend removing them when you sleep at night. When you’re not wearing your dentures, keep them in a small tub of water to prevent them from drying out. Once a week, use a denture-cleaning solution instead of water.

Your dentures should be checked at least once a year so that they can be adjusted to meet your needs and receive routine maintenance. We can complete these checks at your regular appointments.

If you experience any problems or discomfort with your dentures, please contact our office immediately to schedule an appointment.
