This is an interesting, and a very hard question to answer. As long as your dentures are in contact with water, they will stay in the water.
I’ve read that dentures can be a problem when they are submerged in water, but I’ve never had a problem with them staying submerged. I have a few dentures that are still submerged underwater, but I don’t think that is an issue. Dentures are just a really long rubber tube with an epoxy resin inside it. That resin should be holding it in place.
Ive even read that dentures in fact will actually float, with the resin holding it down. That is a very good reason to avoid this.
I believe the dentures will float. I’m not a dentist by any means so I can’t speak from experience, but I’ll say that dentures can float. The problem is that the resin they are made of is very thin. It can become stuck to the bone when the teeth are submerged, and that can cause the dentures to sink.
The problem is that dentures are made of very thin resin. If we put a denture in a sink, it will sink. If we put it in a bathtub it will sink, if we put it in water it will sink. But if the resin is thick enough to hold it in place, the denture should float.
I think that is a good point and worth highlighting. I have had dentures that did float but only after a long period of time and then they started to sink.
We’ll see in the game, but for now, consider this a warning: If you have big dentures, let them sink, but if they’re small, let them float.
Dentures don’t usually stay afloat for long. One way to test that is to put a hot drink inside a coffee cup and then in the sink let the water from the coffee cup soak into the dentures. This is known as a “boil and soak” test, but it takes a while and it’s not something I would suggest doing with dentures.
I think at some point, dentures will float. I think they will float for a short while, then they might sink, though I can’t be sure.
