I had all my top teeth pulled 3 days ago. Overall im doing ok. When should i leave my dentures out all night? I really hate the feeling of them being out. Also there is a really sore spot on my gums when i put the dentures back in after cleaning. It hurts so bad getting them back in. Any suggestions?

If you have sore spots you may have to leave your dentures out for periods and rinse with warm salt water, as Lisa said. 

I never take mine out at night because I gag when I don't have any teeth in my mouth. I just take them out in the morning, clean them and put them back in. If you have a spot that sore is it possible for you to go see your dentist. I would think this means he needs to do a little grinding to get rid of that spot. It is normal for people to go back to the dentist any number of times for these sore spots after first getting your dentures. Don't be afraid to contact his office and explain about this.

Yep, I'd gag as well.
I just want to get as comfortable-with-the-uncomfortableness of having all this cumbersome plastic in my mouth, and get on with it.
