How do your dentures feel aginst the bone?

Each day brings a new kind of hell LOL

Now that I'm over the initial shock and pain of the extractions, my mouth decided I need a new kind of pain. The denture is so hard around the front of the gums next to the bone that it's impossible to do anything with them in. 

Does this toughen up over time?

I REALLY hope so! I couldn't put my teeth in yesterday because I had little "cuts" where the denture hurt rubbing on the top and bottom.

I had 6 of my molars removed 11 years ago, so I keep comparing everything to them. I know they will toughen up, but when?

I found this at the drug store today and I'm going to try it. It creates a protective, medicated gel liner that you add to your gums before inserting the denture.

OK, so, while in theory this sounds like a good solution, it actually really sucked donkey balls!  LOL

My open sockets are extremely sensitive to cooler air so holding  my mouth open while this stuff dries was totally not going to work.  Maybe in another week or so I might be able to do that.

I haven't seen this Oragel. I have been using the one for severe pain. I rub it on my bottom gum and then fill my denture with it. Don't feel anything for a good long while. It would be nice if Poligrip it fixodent would come up with a product that already included the numbing gel.
