I am new here and I just got my Dentures Yesterday.. I have the Full upper and full Lowers... I can't seem to find my post.. So I thought I would try again.. I was wondering if it would be ok to sleep without my dentures tonight... My dentist had me wear them to bed last night.. but when I went to see him this morning to get them relined I forgot to ask him and he isn't open until Monday now and I don't want to bother him at home

Hi I'm Elaina I got my top dentures Tuesday. Tuesday night is the only night I have slept with mine in. The rest of the nights I put them in the plastic container they gave me and put a fixodent tablet in there and filled it up with water.

I was like Elaina. First night they stayed in, but after that I was told to take them out. And I was taking them out several times a day to rinse with warm salty water or with the mouth wash they wanted me to use.

Goughy,
Did it seem to take your extraction sites longer to heal up since you had your dentures in a lot? Mine seems to be taking forever. This is day 6 and mine are almost as sore now as when he first pulled them.
