Paradise Dental Studio's Post-Op Instructions for Full Dentures

It gives us great pleasure to inform you that we at Paradise Dental Studio of Fort Lauderdale have successfully delivered your brand-new complete dentures. It is essential to carefully adhere to these post-operative instructions and aftercare requirements in order to ensure that they will last for a long time and that you will be comfortable.


Understanding Full Dentures

Full dentures are a very excellent option for people who have lost the majority or all of their natural teeth, whether as a result of aging, accidents, or health problems or conditions. They are prosthetics that can be removed and offer both aesthetic and practical benefits. They enable you to eat, speak, and smile with complete assurance.

Post-Op Instructions

Wear Your Dentures for the Designated Time Period

During the first few days after the dentures have been fitted, it is essential to remember to wear them as directed by our dentist. Because of this, your gums and mouth tissues are better able to adjust to the shape and fit of the dentures. A slight discomfort is to be expected; however, if it continues or gets worse, please get in touch with us as soon as possible.

Practice Proper Cleaning and Care

Dentures, like natural teeth, need regular cleaning. After meals, remove and rinse them, then brush gently with a soft-bristled or denture brush. Nightly, soak them in a denture cleaning solution. Avoid harsh cleaners and hot water to prevent damage.

Handle with Care

Dentures are delicate. Remove or insert them over a soft surface to prevent breakage from falls. Avoid bending or twisting them.

Aftercare Tips

Keep Regular Dental Appointments

Regular dental check-ups are essential for denture wearers. Our dentist will inspect your dentures, adjust them if necessary, and provide cleanings to maintain oral health.

Avoid Hard or Sticky Foods

Dentures are durable but not indestructible. Avoid hard or sticky foods that could damage them. Cut challenging foods into smaller pieces and consider using denture adhesive.

Take Proper Care of Your Dentures

Clean your dentures daily with a denture cleaner or warm water and mild soap. Use a denture brush, and avoid regular toothpaste.

Give Your Gums a Break

Allow your gums rest time from the dentures daily for at least 6-8 hours. This prevents irritation and allows thorough cleaning of the dentures.

Visit Your Dentist Regularly

Routine dental visits are crucial for denture wearers. Your dentist will check your dentures and provide professional cleanings.

Be Patient with Eating and Speaking

Adjusting to dentures takes time. Start with soft foods and practice speaking aloud to improve clarity.
