Dentures may feel a little awkward for a few weeks as you get used to them. You might experience minor irritation or soreness and increased saliva flow. After some time, these symptoms will disappear. If they persist, please call us at 941-549-8930 so we can investigate and adjust your dentures as necessary.
Regular oral hygiene is an integral part of daily life for denture wearers. You’ll want to remove and rinse your dentures after eating. You’ll need to brush them daily with a denture cleanser. It’s important to brush your gums, the roof of your mouth and your tongue as well. Soak your dentures in water or in a gentle denture solution every night and rinse them before putting them back in your mouth.
