I had 15 top teeth pulled and got my top plate the same-day. Its been 2 days and i had to take them out when I got sick to clean them now I cant get them back in. Any suggestions I do take my meds and use warm salt water and ice packs I go back tomorrow but I really want the back in. It seems like the front top part is curved into my gums to much and it kills me i can almost get them in but it looks like i have buck~teeth Should I just force them in or what?

Have you tried water in your mouth and wetting the plate so its wet when trying to place back in. I had the same issue last night ,my day 2 and cried.

I recently had a full set made and am getting used to them pretty well. Try wetting your denture first and put the bigger of the two in first. My bottom denture is a lot bigger than my top, so i always wet it and put that one in first. if you are having sore spots, i would use warm salt water rinses until you can have your dentist adjust your dentures and don't wear them so that you don't risk gum ulcers or an infection caused by them..patience is on your side. hang in there. it gets better!!!
