Do You Remove Implant Dentures to Eat or Sleep?
Watch this video to learn about the appropriate times to take out your dentures.
Do you remove your implant dentures? It’s recommended that you don’t sleep with your implant dentures. Usually during the course of the day, patients aren’t required or patients don’t have to take out the dentures during the day because food doesn’t get under those dentures as much and they’re far more stable.
It’s suggested and it’s recommended that you don’t sleep with those dentures in just to give the gums and the tissue a chance to breathe.
It’s very similar to like taking your shoes off or your socks off, you don’t sleep with your shoes or your socks on to give the tissue a chance to breathe. So that’s recommended. If you tell me you can’t sleep without your dentures, then leave them in. It’s there is no real risk of anything happening if you don’t take the dentures out.
It just makes sense to take them out to give the gums and the tissue a chance to breathe a little bit.
