• Leave your denture in place for 24 hours. This will help with clot formation and minimize bleeding. 


• Frequently, the dentures will feel loose.  This is intentional to account for the swelling that might develop in the first 72 hours.  Please refrain from using any adhesives or denture paste in the region of the fresh wounds until they are fully healed.


• You will develop sore spots and ulceration where the dentures are contacting the gums.  This is normal and should improve with time, as long as you see your dentist for regular adjustments.


• You must see your dentist within the first 48 hours after surgery and make the necessary adjustments to relieve the sore spots. Failure to do so may result in severe denture sores, which may prolong the healing process.


• After the first week, you should routinely leave the dentures out at night.  Excessive wearing of the dentures can cause a superficial fungal infection and inflammation due to the chronic pressure.


Your dentures are only cosmetic for the first 4-6 weeks.  It will take this long for you to become comfortable with your dentures.  Please be patient, since most people have a long adjustment period to their dentures.  This is especially true for lower dentures.
