Re: just had all teeth pulled and dentures put in the same day.

You should be rinising several times a day with a mixture of warm salt water. It will help with healing and will soothe your gums. If the dentist has given you the go ahead to remove your dentures then you should do this with the dentures out. Keep the dentures clean as well. Take whatever pain medication your given and go back for adjustments and have sore spots tended to promptly. Good luck with your new dentures.
