Almost 2 weeks with having dentures and I have a question!

Friday will make 2 weeks since having my upper dentures in. Same day I had 8 top teeth pulled. My dentures are somewhat lose one day the next very lose. My dentist says he doesn't want to adjust them until in two months in because of the gums changing. My question is this- currently I use adhesive cream just on the top of the dentures. When can I use it around the gum area?

Try going with the powder. Go back in and ask for a soft reline... NOW. Not 2 months from now, NOW.  There is no reason you should suffer with loose, sloppy fitting dentures.  My Dentist placed my first at day 7. I'm upper only. You can not learn to use/ chew if they don't fit.  You should get adjustments when YOU feel you need them.    Not at his "This is how we are doing it."   In 2 months you won't want to wear it.

I waited three weeks before I use any kind of denture glue per my dentist office approved.

Have no personal experience with these dentists. However, you in GA do have quite a number of FOY/Fountain of Youth dentures dentists. That would be my personal preference.

Hi I had to wait 2years for dentures as none helped the pain was so bad however I now have them I've had them for maybe 6months and they have started to hurt wit I found putting cotton clothes in them thin layer helped alot I've no had pain since you have to keep going. My hubby got his out sane day he still no had teeth in due to pain but he healed well I think he a big bear to afraid to put them in. Good luck
