Pain when removing new dentures

  • Question
  • Updated 3 years ago
So 2 days ago i got my remaining 6 top teeth pulled and immediate dentures placed in. I went back for follow up yesterday and everything is good. I have a full upper and partial bottom just for back teeth. Anyways, My teeth are very comfortable in, only a bit sore but i did have 6 teeth pulled. I can eat soft things okay and drink and eat fine.
My problem is taking them in and out. My partials come out fine and go back in with a little pain but its just uncomfortable and i know i need to get used to it. I only took the tops out twice yesterday and its excruciatingly painful to remove. I know some of the pain is because of getting teeth pulled and then some added pain because of the foreign object in my mouth on top of open wounds. It hurts so bad to remove it brings me to tears so i could  not bring myself to remove them last night at bedtime. The pain is on the gums above extractions behind my top lip, where the front of the top piece ends. 
My question is: Is there a way to remove them without causing so much pain? There is no adhesives being used just the natural suction. Or would it be okay to leave them in until it is less painful as long as im taking my antibiotics and rinsing my mouth often with warm salt water? Ive been rinsing 4-5 times a day Since yesterday morning.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Go to your dentist and have him make adjustments to the gym line. Also make sure the indent on the top denture lines up with the indent in your mouth...mine did not and were too large and very painful until I got things adjusted.

If you do a reline at the dentist it is usally permanent so if it not a good fit when you get home you have to make more trips to the dentisr

You could have gotten the dentures removed by your dentist. I had got them and was removed and adjusted by my dentist Dr. Hagi in Thornhill ( http://www.thornhillsmilecentre.com/services/mynewteeth-toronto/ )for the first week as he told me it would be difficult for me to remove it from home. There will be pain for few weeks, once you get adjusted to them everything will be fine. Keep rinsing with warm salt water and take your antibiotics, may be they could help you a bit. You will get better each week. Get well soon!!

You poor thing. Normally, you would be expected to take your dentures out only at night to give your gums time to recuperate, so to speak. Since the pain is only happening when you remove them, we would suggest that you contact the doctor who performed the procedure for immediate advice. Try to have a great week! ~Rosie
