Tips for Avoiding Denture Pain
Remove your dentures at night to help the mouth recover and rest. This is a great way for the gums to get the bacterial benefits that come from saliva and ensures that the mouth is not pressed against the dentures for a long period of time. Eat soft foods when you have your dentures in, since harder ones might be too harsh on the dentures.
Make sure that the dentures are cleaned before you put them into your mouth during the day. You need to remove any bacteria that might be sitting on them. If the dentures are new, you have to give them up to a month to conform and settle in the mouth.
During this time, soreness is commonly seen in most patients and as such should be nothing that concerns you. In fact, it is normal to experience this.
