Advanced Dental Artistry | Dentist in Wilmington, DE

Post-Op Care for Dentures

Dr. Kenneth Yost will provide you with instructions and information to help you adjust to wearing dentures and keep your appliance in good condition. Please review these instructions and follow them.

Your dentures may feel awkward when you begin wearing them. For example, you may feel that your speech is altered or your mouth is too full. These problems will subside as you adjust to your dentures.

Care for your dentures by cleaning them after each meal with a soft brush and soapy water. You should also remove your dentures for at least six hours each day to give your gums a rest; we recommend removing your dentures when you go to sleep at night. When your dentures are not in your mouth, place them into a small tub of water to prevent them from drying out. Once a week, place them in a cleaning solution.

Continue to visit Dr. Yost regularly. Your dentures will need to be checked at least once each year so that they can receive routine maintenance and be adjusted to accommodate any changes in your mouth.

If you have any problems with your dentures, contact our office immediately.
