Dentures, especially new ones, can develop sore spots which need to be adjusted. If you notice any areas causing pain that don’t resolve in a few days be sure to call to have us adjust them. This generally takes only a few minutes.
It is recommended to leave your dentures out at night to give your tissues a rest.
Home care will continue to be an important part of your daily routine. Be sure to clean not only your dentures and the case with a denture brush daily but be sure to brush your gums and tongue with a standard toothbrush daily as well. This will remove plaque which still forms everyday in the mouth.
If you notice you denture is not fitting well, please call us to have it evaluated. We can determine if relines or adjustments to the bite are necessary.
