Had uppers out 19hrs ago and the front of mouth is killing me as is 1 part on the side THAT feeks like a knife if i move. Trying to sleep on my back but the pain intensifies. The drugs didnt help this morning so I was awake and alert the whole time . Glad i had lowers done weeks ago cause they were a breeze at the time . Still seems to be alot of blood etc. But the dentures fit i dont think theyll want to come out for a clean .

Warm salt water rinses and a germ killing mouthwash but not Listerine. I did that because my dentist recommended it. I had all mine down at once in January go back next month for permanent implants.

That's what I am thinking, if I can scrape up the money!  I am 2 years out and still having problems.  Not pain, that seemed to be under control.  It is the pressure and eating and speaking clearly.  My mom had dentures and she ate steak and spoke clearly.  I am very self conscious about them and I haven't enjoyed a meal yet.  Just started eating out with others but am not comfortable.  By early evening I have to get them out I can't stand the pressure feeling and I can't stand not having the food touch the roof of my mouth.  I think I made a huge mistake.  Linda W desperate!

Thanks all. Feeling slightly better this morning. I still feel like my face was used as a football but the extraction sites dont seem to be sore .kept up with rinsing everytime i woke up and can no longer taste blood but i do have alot of saliva .was quire funny sleeping with uppers in and not my lowers .
I even kept a tooth as a keepsake ( so i can put it on a necklace or something .)

Warm salt water rinses frequently, helps sooo much.  Sounds like they are too tight.  And the pain on the side, you need an adjustment, will fix both of those problems. Concerned about the loss of the blood. Need to call the dentist back or go in for emergency appt.  Hope all gets better for you!!

Ok been a couple of days and still have somewhat of a swollen face. Slept without dentures last night as discovered a sore/ulcer at the front which was causing great discomfort. Had a little chuckle at having no teeth left but had prepared myself for months ,actually feels quite good. My nose still feels tingly. Have decided today to be denture free to allow myself a pain free day .Will put in for couple hrs before bed though .Now that i have my uppers my lowers dont want to stay put with the paste now :-( neverending problems but its part of the process and at the end of it all will be pain free and smiling .

Glad you're feeling better Cassie.  Hopefully your lowers will learn to behave and stop wandering off unsupervised.  I hate when that happens!  :-)
I finally have mine "trained" pretty well now.

Healing better than i thought .Had spag bog and mash for dinner last night,chopped the spag nice and small incase i couldnt chew and had to just swallow, well the opposite happened could chew but couldnt swallow .i gagged everytime .Today i had a slice of bread which was difficult as now the plate moves a little. But i ate smaller bits and used the back of dentures which seemed easier. Trying fish tonight and maybe rice or an alfredo pasta . On the swelling side of things my face has shrunk back to almost normal.Nose is still feeling numb when dentures in so thinking i might need the front shaved down a little .Keeping fingers crossed that things continue to improve.
