The new material on your denture is a temporary tissue conditioning treatment liner. Do not scrub the liner with anything for the first three days. It is very stick and could gum up pull away from the denture.
After the first three days, you can gently use a soft bristle toothbrush to clean, only if necessary. It is preferred that you only rinse the denture with regular tap water.
Do not use Efferdent tables on liner. It will make the liner bubble up and need to redone.
Directions for use:
- Brush teeth before inserting trays.

- Wear Opalescence 20% for 2-4 hours.
- Remove excess gel with 2×2 gauze provided.
- Clean tray with soft brush and cool tap water.
- Do not use tobacco products or eat while bleaching.
- Teeth are naturally darker along the gum line. These areas may require more time to lighten than the rest of the tooth surface and usually remain slightly darker.
- White spots on the enamel or that appear during bleaching may blend during continued bleaching process.
- A small percentage of patients experience sensitivity with bleaching. Should this occur, remove tray wit for sensitivity to stop for 1 to 2 days. Try a flouride rinse before and after bleaching or use less time with trays in.
- Fods and juices high citric acid can cause sensitivity to the teeth.
- Some patients have noticed temporary discomfort to the gums, lips, throat, or tongue. The side effects will usually subside within 1-3 days after treatment is discontinued.
- Coffe, tobacco, and other products can re-stain your teeth over time. Should this occur, the teeth can be re-whitened whitin a few nights using Opalescence.
- Regular dental checkups and cleanings are importante before and after bleaching to maintain a healthy smile.
- Crowns, bridges, partial dentures, veneers, and composite fillings will not bleach.

Here are a few of the guidelines you should follow after oral surgery
If you have received an oral surgery procedure, our dentist and team will provide you with detailed instructions about what to do so that you can recover quickly and return to your regular activities.
- Take all the medications as prescribed.
- To help relieve pain and swelling, apply ice or cold pack to the outside of your mouth for 20 minutes at a time. Put a thin cloth between the ice and your skin.
- After 48 hours, rinse your mouth gently with prescribed rinse or salt water three times a day to reduce swelling and relieve pain. Make your own salt water by mixing 1 tsp (5 g) of salt in a medium-sized glass of 8 fluid oz. (240 mL) of water. Do not rinse hard. This can loosen the blood clot, increasing bleeding and delaying healing.
- Relax for three days after surgery. Physical activity may increase bleeding.
- Avoid smoking.
- Eat soft foods, such as gelatin, pudding or a thin soup. Gradually add solid foods to your diet as healing progresses.
- Do not lie flat. This may prolong bleeding. Prop up your head with pillows.
- Avoid rubbing the area with your tongue.
- Do not use sucking motions, such as when using a straw to drink.
- Avoid spitting
- Continue to carefully brush your teeth and tongue.
