Just got my dentures today,
I went through a very slow process of getting all my teeth taken out, they could only do a few teeth at a time because of infections and impacted teeth and it took 11 appointments.. i am fully healed by now. this afternoon i went to pick up my new dentures very excited. she had me sit down, handed me a box and i put the lowers in first.. they fit and looked great! then i attempted the top. the first thing i noticed was how much it pinched and hurt to even attempt to put the uppers in, i told the dental assistant this and she said that's to be expected and to try fitting them in again. i again tried and with alot of pushing and alot of pain i got them in the best i could but the pain was so bad i had to take them out after a few seconds. i tried telling the dental assistant that it hurt and i thought they were fitted to my mouth, she said to give it a week and come back with any problems then said bye and left the room. i have never had dentures before so i really didnt know what to expect but is this normal? at home i have tried to put in the uppers again and ended up pinching my gums on both sides so much i was in tears. am i doing something wrong? i have no tried any adhesives yet.
