Thanks for joining us! I can tell you that during the first two weeks, your mouth is adjusting to the new dentures and you will likely experience increased salivation and even experience sore spots in your mouth from the dentures. It will greatly help both issues if you rinse your mouth with warm salt water several times a day. If soreness persists, return to your dentist for an adjustment. Expect a longer denture adjustment and healing time if you recently had teeth extracted or are a full-plate wearer. Hope this helps.
