It's been only 6 days with new dentures and I am having SO many problems. 6 Days ago I got all my bottom teeth removed. They put in the immediate denture. I can't eat anything, at all without some sort of pain. I am hungry ALL the time, and miserable/cranky because of this. I have tried protein shakes but they aren't the same and though I can eat baby food the taste is starting to make me very nauseous. Around day 4 I noticed I cannot close my mouth comfortably at all. I went to the dentist and she did some adjustments which relieved the pain a bit but now my mouth is open at almost ALL times and my have EXTREME dry mouth. The dry mouth is so bad I can't even sleep because it wakes me up since it irritates the wounds in my gums which are still fresh. I also can't sleep if the dentures aren't in because I still have top teeth and my jaw keeps clenching and slamming down into the wounded gums causing immense pain. I haven't gotten any decent sleep or food in DAYS. I am an emotional wreck and I cannot handle this any more. Everyone keeps saying it gets better and I'm willing to believe that but think of it this way. Before extractions I was only 109 pounds (at the height of 5feet 9inches) I cannot afford to lose MORE WEIGHT and I cannot keep my weight up if I'm on a liquid/baby food diet. I cannot function on only 2-3 hours of sleep at a time then having to get up to brush my teeth or rinse my mouth. It's too painful to eat, too painful to sleep, and even the really heavy pain medications aren't doing anything. My dentist won't even let me use poligrip yet she told me to wait. What am I supposed to do? If I can't sleep I can't function and I kind of need to because I'm 30 years old and have work to do. Can anyone help me with ANY of this? ESPECIALLY THE FACT THAT I CAN"T EVEN CLOSE MY MOUTH COMFORTABLY even when I'm awake?
