Immediate Denture

After your teeth have been extracted and the denture is placed by the dentist or oral surgeon, it is critical that you LEAVE YOUR DENTURE IN YOUR MOUTH until your next dental appointment (usually within 2 days). 
 
If you experience any bleeding, unusual level of pain, or a gagging problem contact the office immediately at (302) 421-9960.
 
During the 1st week after extractions, it is critical to LEAVE YOUR DENTURE IN YOUR MOUTH ALL THE TIME.  If your denture is removed for more than 15 minutes at a time swelling of the gum tissue can occur which will not allow the dentures to fit properly in your mouth.  Also, the denture acts as a dressing over the extractions sites which promotes healing. 
 
For any problems or questions contact the office at (302) 421-9960.
