after 2 and a half weeks I used denture adhesive. Worked great., made an amazing positive difference. Problem here is I can't seem to get them out. Any tips how to loosen things up to remove them more easily and less painfully?
Hi Bethany, try swishing your mouth with warm water or a mouthwash to help loosen the seal, then slowly and steadily pull the denture up in a rocking motion. If you still can't get your dentures out, you can also try puffing out your cheeks or attempting to (carefully!) bite into a firm fruit or vegetable. If you have any questions, you can always feel free to give us a call at 1-800-214-8871. We're open Monday through Friday from 9:00-6:00 Eastern time.
I've found the best way to loosen them is to try to keep them in. lol warm soup a sip or 2 of mountain dew, etc. seem to work wonders. pops them loose every time. Of course I'm 2 1/2 weeks into full upper and lower immediate dentures after 27 extractions, so they are getting pretty loose now.
