Ever feel your denture is too deep? I recently got my lower teeth pulled and the denture feels like it is cutting in down near the gum/cheek line. Extremely painful! I tried putting my old partial in and it is pain free, but this new denture is excruciating to wear! Is this just part of the healing process?

Mine did, told dentist and he ground them off to make them lower. Really helped!

I had the same problem only on the inside, under my tongue. Like Judi, I went in and the dentist ground them down to the point that they still fit but no more sores!
