How Long Should I Wear the Denture?

Your denturist will give you specific instructions concerning how long the denture should be worn and when it should be removed. Initially, you may be asked to wear your denture all the time. Although this may be temporarily uncomfortable for you, it will allow us to identify those denture areas that may need adjustment.

If the denture places too much pressure on a particular area, that spot will become sore. Your denturist will adjust the denture to fit more comfortably. After making those adjustments, your denturist might recommend that you remove your denture before going to bed and replace it in the morning.
