I know the feeling.  I have a partial on my bottom and full on the top.  I had to get my teeth pulled, they were literally no good, between those broken off and the absesses, I really had no choice.  However, I put glue to hold them in, but I can't bite or chew anything.  The moment I take a bite the bottom partial comes loose followed by the tops.  It's nothing but a major pain in the butt.

It does get better but I remember well how you felt. Warm salt water rinses help and I found ibuprofen better than anything for pain management. Keep on top of things with your denture people and make sure you get adjustments as different sore areas develop. They will see where things are rubbing then smooth those areas down.

It was explained to me during one of many adjustments (I was remarking how everything will feel fine then the next morning I'd have a sore spot) anyway, that when we are healing the wounds will heal in one direction then might shift direction overnight, this creating a new sore area.

I cannot stress enough the importance of keeping in close contact with your denture dude or gal during the first few months. Call if needed, let them know what hurts and you need relief ASAP.

Andrew I had mine pulled Tuesday (bottoms). I have to agree with above, ibuprofen has helped with the mouth pain (thanks to inflamation) than the t3s.. I've been trying to hold off on those for only when the pain in my jaw (thanks TMJ and having my mouth open for an hour) and at night. I've mainly been eating Ramen soup, spagettios, and pudding (if I can swallow w/o chewing, I'm good). I picked up carnation drink mixes yesrerdya and im drinking 1 in the morning and 1 at night. We made spaghetti tonight with spiral noodles I could cut into smaller bits and swallow (felt so good to eat real dinner) but I can't with my teeth in.. since they are loose and I have a sore spot next to my tongue, and stitches. I've been doing oragel and ibuprofen just to try to keep them in during the day. I had one adjustment on Thursday and it made a world of difference but I need it done again. My appt to remove my stitches is Wednesday so I have to wait til then.

I feel your pain. Trust me when I say it will get better, I've seen my husband go thru it and I'm noticing better times too.
