In brief: Yes

See your dentist to check the fit of the denture.
Best not to use the adhesive. The o2 will not harm it.

In brief: Yes

Some folks need to wear there dentures to support there face, lips and jaw position when they sleep.
However it is vitally important for you to find at least 6 hours during the day in which you take the denture out and let the gums and supporting jaw bone "breathe". Consistent 24 hour use is not healthy for complete dentures and can lead to infections and increase bone loss.

In brief: Yes, it's ok

The chemicals in the adhesives don't react to the oxygen to cause any toxicity.
