Post-op Instructions: Dentures / Partials

Sore spots: Usually your mouth will have a few “sore spots” after wearing the denture/partial for 24 hours. These areas can be relieved with very little effort during your next appointment.

Chewing: The new bite may not feel completely comfortable for several weeks. We can adjust the contacting surfaces of your teeth after the dentures or partials have settled into place.

Cleaning the dentures/partials and your mouth: Your denture/partials can be cleaned easily by using a denture brush and a mild toothpaste. Periodic denture soaks are also useful (ex: Polident). We recommend leaving your partials out of your mouth at night and soaking them in water.

Dentures only: Brush your gums with a regular toothbrush once per day to toughen and clean them. 

Partials only: Use special care to clean parts of the partial that contact any natural teeth. Both the partial and natural teeth must be kept clean on a daily basis to reduce the chance of new dental decay. Our North Texas dentists have done our best to provide you with well-fitted, functional, and aesthetic dentures/partials. We feel confident that after a few weeks of becoming adjusted to the new dentures/partials, you will experience years of satisfaction. Over time, your jawbone and gums shrink when there are teeth missing. When this occurs, your dentures/partials will feel loose, and may require relining. Wearing ill-fitting dentures/partials for too long without refitting can cause severe bone loss and very serious oral disease. Please call our McKinney dentist office if these symptoms occur.

We believe that every patient has a right to our very best.

“They like their jobs!”

Staff is friendly, professional and you can tell they like their job! I have been going here for my dental needs and could not be happier! It is not often that you find a place that has excellent clinical skills and personal skills to go with it. From the front desk to the Dentist, I give them 5 stars in every aspect.

“Always so friendly and skillful!”

The experience at McKinney Dentist is always wonderful. I checked in and was called back within 5 minutes. My appointment began (early) which is great! The assistant was so friendly and very efficient. Dr Callison came in very soon and got to work. He is always so friendly and skillful! I was out the door in a few minutes. Perfect!

“Personable and trustworthy!”

Dr. Berlin provided me with a general video overview of the next steps to take towards aesthetically improving the appearance and health of my teeth within little over a day after I initially contacted his office. I once had a terrible experience with a dentist several years ago and committed to never subjecting myself to that type of treatment again. I found Dr. Berlin to be quite personable and trustworthy and look forward to getting started in taking control of my dental health. A beautiful smile is on the horizon for me!
