will this be remedied with a soft reline or should I go back in? I already had my post op appt. see photos.
@AngelMarie Hopefully the bleeding has stopped. Salt water rinses should become your "best friend" for the next 6mths. I would rinse at least 3x a day. The Upper will feel huge as it's hard to determine how much swelling you would have to the next person, so when a denture is made we keep in mind making it big enough that it will fit. Don't worry....that will change with time. That's very common for the denture to "push up" into your nose. That's a sign that your gums are already shrinking. All the pink acrylic part above the teeth is called the flange. You can get in for an adjustment and have them trim the top of it to make it shorter so it doesn't push up but it may happen again as your gums are shrinking/healing for 6mths. If it does you have them adjust it again down the road. It's hard to give you some answers as you're not here in person nor can I see pics. Your new teeth may seem big because you had damaged teeth for a long time?? and got used to that. There should be a slight overbite and if you never had one before chance it they made it like that to correct your bite which may take time to get used to. You should be addressing all these issues when you go for adjustments and they should try their best to help you and relieve the denture. It sounds like you're saying the lower is too thick with acrylic behind your teeth? Is your lower a Partial acrylic with just all pink or a Partial Casting (metal frame) denture?
The soft reline will help a lot of issues but you should be able to go back for adjustments. Sorry I don't see any photos attached on here. :/

Hi i had my immediate dentures for 2 weeks now and i feel the exterior gum material above and below the teeth are too thick making my lips not close. i used to be attractive but this ruins everything! they tell me they cant adjust that part, could i file it down myself as its the part covered by my lips and its not affecting the interior fit/suction?

I'd like to see your "normal" smile then take a pic of the front of the denture where you have issues.
