You are not alone. You will go through a lot of changes. They don't do a relining for quite a while but you may have to go back a few times for minor adjustments to smooth off irritating areas. This service is included so don't hesitate to ask for help till it's comfortable. I was told to do warm salt water rinses for a while till your gums heal. Also make sure they have your bite lined up right. If that is not right it can be very painful. It's ok to take them out at night for comfort.

Thank you so much... I have like a red soreness around my mouth . prob because i had to get them all extracted at once.... But even when the terth sre out my gums still hurt.. Like a little burn is that because the wounds are still open somewhat i have stitches and i do sald water 5 times a day... I dont like this change i hate being in this much pain. Feels like having a tooth ache x100. ... And i take Motrin to take the swelling down but only lasts for so long. Should i call my dentist tomorrow and talk to them

You had a lot of trauma to your mouth. Tomorrow is Sunday. Call Monday if not improving. Continue with warm salt water rinses. It's not easy for most people. Ignore the people that say things like, "oh my father got dentures and never had a problem".......good for him but for most people it's difficult.

a couple people i know said that... It looks like im starting to get sores on the bottom . if i cant take the pain do you think it would be wrong not to put them in today?.. I woke up in pain and dont even have them in yet. This whole process is making me feel like im loosing myself. I feel depressed and not pretty anymore .

I understand. It is very depressing. If I don't have to go out I leave mine out. I put on make up especially blush and lipstick. I practice in the mirror not sucking in my lips. It is sad to have to do this but it helps me. I am 74 and still care very much how I look. I feel really bad for you young women dealing with this. Don't give up, it takes time. Write to me anytime.

I'm a 30 year old guy due to health problems I had to have all my teeth extracted at once I had dentures put in the same day. This was 5 1/2 months ago. For the first 3 months I drank stuff like ensure and muscle milk for the protein that helps your mouth heal a lot quicker. The first week I stayed on a liquid diet mashed potatoes, apple sauce ect. At first It was painful yes but it's worth it in the long run an I have learned how to deal with them better later on. Remember those should be temporary and the new ones in 6 to 8 months will feel worlds apart in comfort. But for now i would wait a week for the major swelling to go down and ask for tissue conditioner as its softer material then a reline and they are able to do it multiple times with out adding a bunch of bulk to the dentures. And fyi the bottoms will not fit well until you get your permanent teeth. I hope that help and I'm sure you are still a pretty woman.

Rinse with salt water just before bed. The next morning should be better. Also you can get the stuff you apply as if you had a toothache (anbesol)

I have only two of my own teeth left and before I received uppers and lowers, I ate soft ,mushie and fattening foods(donuts,cakes,mash this ,mash that,etc. When I got the teeth not only was I tickle but had to remind myself that I could now chew carrots,peanuts,celery,baked chicken,etc. So don't worry about how you look,realize that the teeth keeps your face from sagging and that you are able to eat nutritionally.
