Post Operative Instructions for Immediate Dentures
Dentures are teeth substitutes and only have 20-25%of the chewing efficiency of real teeth. They often replace large amounts of lost gum tissues, bone and teeth, often requiring a period of adjustment.
*Do not take your denture out for 24 hours. This will help control bleeding and swelling. After 24 hours remove your denture to clean it, rinse out your mouth and replace the denture. After the first 48 hours, remove denture at night to sleep.
Further instructions can be found on this page, however, you can always call with any post-op denture related questions.
