See your surgeon: You must leave the dentures in your mouth. Swelling may happen and you may not be able to get the dentures back in your mouth. The dentures should only be removed for cleaning after each meal and at bedtime. Take NSAID OTC or Tylenol (acetaminophen) and see your surgeon for adjustment ASAP.
