The early weeks of denture wearing can present some challenges as you adjust to them. One problem that often arises, and that may not be apparent to the uninitiated denture-wearer, is the difficulty some experience in getting their dentures out at night because of the adhesive. Dr. Minh Nguyen offers these tips to make it easier to remove new dentures:

  Try varying the amount or brand of adhesive you use.

  Use different finger positions to dislodge your denture. For example, try pulling only on the left or right side of your denture to remove it.

  Place a finger inside each of your cheeks and pull them out laterally (so you look like a chipmunk, or a child making a face!). This stretches your cheek muscles and usually breaks the seal created by the denture adhesive. "In no time, new denture-wearers are usually able to remove their denture without even thinking about it!" Janson said.
