I'm wondering how long after extractions and dentures put in should I take them out to clean?

24 hours: The dentist should be the one to remove them the next day. They should check for healing, clotting, and pressure / sore spots, as well as fit. Adjustments as needed then and over the next 1 - 4 weeks. Rinse only gently for the first 2 -3 days, so you don't wash out the clots. See your dentist for follow-up right away. Good luck. ...Read more

How long should you wait until you put your new dentures in after you have your teeth pulled?

Immediately: Usually if you get dentures "same day" after tooth extractions, you should wear them out the door and overnight. One reason is that your gums will swell after extractions and you'll have trouble getting your dentures in for several days unless you put them in at the start. If you've waited and have trouble now, give your gum swelling time to go down and your dentures should fit better soon. ...Read more

Two ways to.........: False teeth as in dentures can usually be inserted at the same time that the teeth are removed.
