I am new to all this and could use some advice and others to talk to. Here is my story. I have had bad teeth for a very long time it got to a point that I could not eat much so on September 13 I went in and had all teeth removed, here I am one week in and doing ok until I put my lowers in, I have had them adjusted but I have a sore spot and am now scared to put them in because of the pain. HELP..

I had an adjustment done weekly for the first three weeks, and then I just had a soft reline done. I would suggest seeing your dentist and having them fix it.

I have the same problem.  I have one spot that feels like it's sharp when they go in.  I run my dentures under warm water before putting them in, and it helps some.  I also use fixodent powder and that helps some.

You need to have some Benzodent on hand. It's not helpful right now because you have to order it on amazon (sorry!), but it's great for sore spots. 

Like everyone said, get in for an adjustment. My second one really tweaked everything for me and they became much more comfortable.

It's almost a week since I had most of my top teeth extracted - the front six remain.  My temporaries were so painful for the first few days because of some substantial swelling on the outside of my left gum.  I've had one adjustment and it helped a LOT - it's not perfect because there is so much swelling but it's at least livable.  But there is no way I can wear them for 12 hours straight.  Which means using my sick days at work.

My dentist said only wear them as long as I'm able, and let the swelling subside.  She's adjusting them again tomorrow and doing a reline Friday.  Praying...
