I just had all 13 teeth in front, bottom and top pulled, with just the numbing shots. ANSWER TO YOUR QUESTION = leave them in until your dentist tells you. I had mine done on the 29th of April three days ago, and went back the next day for him to take them out and look. He put them back in and stated that I should start taking them out at night and put them back in in the morning. I did great through the extractions, but when it comes to taking them in and out... Oh, The Pain. I had my husband get me some anbesol for denture sores. It's not the extractions that hurt, it is the sores on your gums from having a foreign fixture in there. He will adjust them, and they will be fine. AND, YES, IBUPROFEN WORKS THE BEST!!! Hope this helps.
Carlos you got a great answer prior to mine but when i had mine done my doctor told me leave them alone until HE took them out very importaint as the answer before me says When do you see the doctor.And if in dough call the doctors office and find out Make sure its not in the paper work they gave you what you do now is so importaint to keep a good fitting denture the rest of your life... call the dentist if you are not sure and follow Kaismama answer its got it down to a tea as far as pain and swelling do not take them out until dentist tells you or its written on your slip very importaint that you follow these directions..
Don't do it. Your gums need to be molded to the dentures. They will keep down the swelling. Did the dr give you something for pain? Are you keeping ice on your face around your mouth? You will be glad later you left them in. I've been there myself. I found that motrin helped more then anything. So leave them as long as the dr told you to. Hint, they aren't what's causing the pain anyway.
