My lower denture actually made a huge gash !! that almost goes right thruthe inside of my bottom lip along the bottom. It's actually split. . any more it will cut thru my skin on my chin... I think that my bottom gum has rescided so much in 8 years that there's really little ridge for the center of my bottom denture to hang on.. I can't be without as I've been wearing them 24 hours a day for 8 years. I'm so used to them. This split is scaring me tho. I am getting new ones next week. I wonder if this cut will heal.. Its really torn 1" split that runs along the length of the inside of my lip !!
I don't no how this even began..I noticed it 2 months ago when my chin hurt.

This sounds so bad and so serious

You should be getting some expert advise before you
 go one step further
Go to a few Dentists that give "FREE" consultations ad ask what is beat

Find a Dental college near you and go for an evaluation with prices

Consider an implant system

Consider clip on over dentures
Become an expert in your own situation
Keep asking questions on this bog

Ow! I have had similar problems but not as bad as that. The inside of my bottom lip has been rubbed raw and blistered even, but no gashes! I just figured my issues were normal, but I think Barbara gave best advice for your situation. I hope it gets better!!
