Hi, I just had all my teeth out and immediate dentures in place. The bottom ones hurt so bad, I have them out until I can go back to the dentist tomorrow. The uppers are ok, but they look crooked. They are very nice, just look crooked, and I don't want to insult him. Last thing, I have a pretty bad earache on my right side! Thanks for listening!

Try putting a tea bag on your gums it should help. I can't stand the taste of tea but I did this when I had mine done and it helped. Also you could try clove oil you won't need much and it will numb it up for a while

HI! unfortunately, all this is painful. When you say crooked, do you mean the teeth themselves? If you have immediates, you will get a different set that you can tell themail what changes you'd want made. Bring up your pain to your dentist.

Hope everything gets better soon. You'll probably need to visit the dentist a few times before the dentures fit better. It will take a few weeks to a month before you really start to feel better. You paid for the dentures, so don't feel bad about talking to the dentist about them being crooked. Get that fixed. I'm not sure about the earache. That didn't happen to me, but mention that to the dentist as well. It will get better.

Yes several adjustments are often needed. Your gums will shrink gradually also.

I have had three soft fills and with every one they fit better and better. Go in on the 11th of June to get my final Dentures. I have been wearing both tops and Bottoms more every month. The bottoms were the toughest to get used to tho. It takes about 6 months to get them to set right on your gums but they will get better. So far I am happy except the adhesive doesn't work well on the soft fill but they have been fitting better overall very happy, just takes time.

Try the powder on tops and bottoms. I put powder on both then cover the bottom with water and let it sit for a few min. They are really tight after an hour or 2 and you can eat just about anything.

I waited a week or so on my bottom teeth don't remember how long for my top. I would wait at least a week. Your denture should fit well then still
