I am on day 5 of 28 extractions and immediate dentures, I have had many issues and currently do not have a top denture but I do have the bottom and I am getting sore spots on the lower front of each side, my dentures do not move a lot and are actually pretty snug fitting and comfortable other then these spots, any recommendations on what I can do to help relieve these painful things so i can continue to wear my denture as the doctor has ordered? 

I have orajel mouth wash for sore spots, I have done the salt water rinses and still am, I have even had them out of my mouth for 2 days but it seems as soon as I put them back in the spots  reappear.. I have already had them adjusted 2 times as well including this morning.. 

right after an adjustment they feel fine but by the time i drive from the office to home I am in pain again.

I used orajel in the tube and just put it in the denture where it would rub. Numbs it for a long while.

for some reason I havent had orajel work for me but I read somewhere here on the site about Benzodent and I put in an order on Amazon yesterday.. I am willing to try anything at this point.

What I did was use a dab of Fixodent on the inside edges of my lower. Only use a small amount it help keep the denture from rocking/moving which causes the sore spots. Don’t get any on top of your gums where they are healing. Help me lots

Thank you so much, I just went out today to look for adhesives and I ended up buying 2 brands before going to another store and finding Benzodent.. I have seen so much about it here in the group that I bought it and went straight to car to use it and OMG amazing.. today is the first day I have worn my bottom denture and not felt any pain.
