New denture wearer

I just got my first set of dentures.  The dentist told me to keep them for 5 days. I took them out on day 6 and I cannot get them back in and the pain is unreal. What can I do to get them back in?

Get some Chloraseptic Spray (it's for a sore throat).  Spray your gums with it, and it will numb your gums so you can put the denture back in.  It will numb everything in your mouth though, so you may want to put some in a small bowl and liberally apply it with cotton.

I'm on day 7 and haven't had that problem, but a friend did and she used Chloraseptic - she said it worked.
