New lower partial denture won't hold

I've just recently gotten my lower partial denture for a tooth I broke back in March. It kept popping in and out today, and came out during supper. Now I can't get it to go back in. Any tips, before I'll call my dentist soon, if it won't stay and hold?

Hi Kristen, sorry you are having trouble with your lower partial! While a denture adhesive like Fixodent Plus Gum Care might help stabilize the denture, it isn’t a substitute for a denture that isn’t fitting you properly. I think calling your dentist was a good idea! They’ll be able to assess whether the fit of your partial is still working for you. Best of luck!

Thanks for getting back to me, Stephanie. I went to the dentist today and learned new trick on how to insert them. I'll practice a few times after lunch today.
