Ice your mouth 20 minutes on and 20 minutes off. Also, take the generic for Advil every 4 hours alternating it with a pain pill. Set your clock to wake you up at night and take a pain pill so you don't let the pain come back.. Also Benzodent is a big help if you have sores from the rubbing with your dentures. You get it at Amazon. Good luck!!!

I am on day 10, I used what was mentioned above plus a mouth wash for mouth sores. I started feeling like I could talk ok about day 7...your voice sounds different in your head than it does to other people (I started believing that after I talked with enough people I trusted to tell me the truth). Im just now starting to figure out how to eat soft foods but Ive been told its all about having patience and not giving up.
