Removing complete dentures during sleep promotes breathing disorders and increases both the risk
of hypertension and cardiovascular disease.

Your Jaws ~ Your Life (page 50)

Taking removable dentures out at night may be a killer! When dentures or teeth are removed, the tongue can be forced backwards into the throat and block the airway. This happens when jaws do not have teeth or dentures to support them and forward space for the tongue is lost.

If you have fewer than 24 teeth, or if you are missing a large number of back teeth, then wearing dentures at night may be healthier for you. If you choose to do so, make sure you clean your mouth and dentures throughout the day, especially before going to sleep, and also take your dentures out for a few hours to give your mouth a rest.
