I can't shut my mouth all the way and my jaw is propped open. Please help.

So I've had top dentures for 6 years and just had my lowers done 4 days ago. I cannot shut mouth all the way and my jaw is propped open. They gave me a new upper immediate set as well as the lowers and when compared to my old permanent top plate they are huge. I need to know what I can do or what to ask them to do. I can't walk around like this for 4 months 😩

Did you manage to learn anything new during these 2 days? I just don't know how to help you.

Ask your dentist to check the bite again to see if tops and bottoms are aligned correctly- there are images on google as to what correct denture aligned should look like. You might need a bit shave off one or a couple of the teeth.  Would love to hear how you get on 👍. Good luck
