My dentist gave me ibuprofen high dosage kind and some hydrocodone for when he pulled all mine out. To help with taking them out I recommend some gum gel to rub on them. I don't remember the name of it but I used it on my kids gums too when they were coming in and they didn't feel a thing. It's obviously from that comment to gather that its in the baby aisle of most stores. It's pill form but dissolves upon rubbing along gums.

Are you referring to Hylands Teething Tablets and Orajel makes them too? They work great!

Mona, I felt the same way many times in the beginning!

I highly recommend contacting whoever made your denture(s) because it sounds like something that they could take care of in about 5-10 minutes. It really sounds like you have a couple of spots that are rubbing - they can just file those out and no more sores!

Good luck and keep us posted please!

4 weeks in.. All they are doing is rattling around.. Lots of goop each day just so I can wear them. Went Back today they made new liner..back to not eating anything but mashed taters, pudding and jello. Hug !
I'm trying to stay positive. Never would have done this had I knows how painful it really is!
Feel like one step forward and 3 steps back.
Tried the oral gel to help with pain didn't seam to do anything.

Try some different smoothies. I really like the Dole Shakers with and without the veggies. They suggest using OJ, which is good but I prefer pomegranate blueberry juice myself. They are in the freezer section near the frozen juice. Just watch out for seeds, they hurt when they get under your denture.

I promise you that the day will come that you will be thrilled that you did this!
