One thought on “How Do I Place and Remove My Denture?

    Upon removing the denture, rinse your mouth with an antiseptic mouthwash and clean around each implant fixture with a cotton swab and toothpaste. If needed, talk to your pharmacist and take the pain medication only as directed. The denture should feel secure. Avoid excessively hard or sticky foods for a period recommended by Dr. You may even eat as soon as you wish to. You should not experience any excessive bleeding. After that, use your toothbrush that has been specifically designed to clean your implants and gently stimulate the surrounding gum tissue. There will be a few mild discomfort, but this should be minimal and controlled by the pain medication you have been given. Leave the denture in place until bedtime. You will feel the denture snap into place. Make sure that you feel the implant heads easily fitting each O-ring. Remember to push downward equally on both sides. Grasp the denture with both hands and lightly seat the denture, feeling that the O-rings are resting above the ball head of the implants, then press down firmly and equally on both sides. Second, make sure that you feel the implants resting over each socket. The implants and the O-ring fixtures must be clean and free from debris. A light touch will give you the best results. If you have any trouble seating your denture, first make sure that the implants and denture are absolutely clean. If you are still experiencing difficulty, see if a spouse or family member can assist you in placing the denture. Use a cotton swab for three days. Doctor.
