Information and Care – Removable Appliance


  • Brush your appliance with a soft toothbrush after each meal and during your morning and night toothbrushing routine.
  • Begin removing your appliance at night 48-72 hours post-surgery and store it in a plastic case with a small amount of water.
  • Use the body of the appliance to remove it; avoid pulling on wires. We will demonstrate this in the office.
  • Remove your appliance when eating foods that require biting with your false teeth, as it is primarily for cosmetic purposes and may not be suitable for chewing.
  • If you experience discomfort or if the appliance does not fit well after a few days, contact your dentist. Adjustments may be needed after swelling subsides.


  • Avoid leaving the appliance where pets can access it, as dogs and cats may view it as a toy.
  • Refrain from storing it loosely in your pocket or purse to prevent drying out, cracking, or breaking.
  • Do not use the appliance to bite into crunchy foods.
  • Avoid flipping the appliance in and out with your tongue.
  • Do not attempt to sterilize the appliance by boiling it.
  • Do not wrap the appliance in a napkin or paper towel, as this is a common way to lose it; always place it in a plastic container.
  • Do not store the appliance in mouthwash within the container.
