Complete Dentures

  1. If your denture is an immediate denture then wear denture continually for first 24 hrs., this helps control swelling and will help give us an indication of adjustments that may be needed. If it is not an immediate denture then wear as normal.
  2. Adjustments are normal. The exact number and frequency depends on each patient. If you feel that your denture needs an adjustment, call to schedule an appointment.
  3. To keep your mouth healthy remove dentures at bed time. To better maintain dentures always place in water.
  4. Clean dentures daily with a denture brush and toothpaste; you may also use commercially prepared cleaners such as Polident.
  5. Periodic examination is recommended
