Instructions Following Full or Partial Denture Delivery

  • Full and Partial Dentures will often need several adjustments in order to fit comfortably.
  • To help yourself adjust to your dentures you can practice reading aloud for a little while each day.
  • At night you should remove your dentures and clean them. They should be stored in a clean container.
  • Food particles can become trapped under dentures causing inflammation or sore spots. Lightly brush the roof of your mouth, your tongue, and your gums after removing your dentures.

Ongoing Care:

  • Rinsing your mouth with water or mouthwash will help to remove any additional particles that may have been missed during brushing and flossing.
  • Make sure to visit our office at least once a year to have your Full or Partial Denture adjusted and checked by the doctor. Wearing ill-fitting Full or Partial Dentures without proper care and adjustment can cause bone loss in the jaw area and oral disease.
