Customer Question

I had six front teeth (5 front and a bicuspid that had migrated) on the bottom extracted on Sept 23 and a full denture plate put in right after. I am taking one motrin and one Tylenol every 4 hours for the pain. I was wondering when is it okay to take the plate out? It is causing a great deal of pain and when I lift it up slightly the gums underneath is a mangled mess of grey, black and white. I was hoping to take them out for hour intervals (they dig into my gums and under my tongue something awful and are starting to open cuts in my mouth) and give them a chance to breath and to let the salt water hit the wound directly when I swish.
