I had my upper teeth pulled 7 days ago. I developed 2 painful bumps on my gums. I went to dentist... she said they were normal and would soon go away. She gave me some magic mouthwash. Today I got my upper denture. OMG did it hurt. The bumps are horribly painful. They put some numbing gel on my gums to fit the dentures in. My dentist now thinks the bumps may be infected so she prescribed me an antibiotic. I was expecting pain but these bumps is making it unbearable. I am to leave the denture in for 24 hours...sleep with it. How in the world am I going to sleep in this much pain????? I am dreading taking it out because I am afraid of how painful it will be to put it back in. I know eventually this will get better. Good news...I love the way it looks!
