Sore spots

I'm almost 6 weeks post extractions with my immediate dentures. I am continuously having sore spots. Like a lot. My dentist fixes one side and then the other side starts up. Has anyone else had this problem? My jaw seems to be healing oddly and that's why I keep getting the sore spots. My dentist told me it takes 6 months for the jaw to heal completely and then he can do a permanent hard line and I'll be good to go. But I don't know if I can keep doing this for another 4 and 1/2 months. Anyone else have this problem? Thanks!

Is it uppers or lowers? Rub your finger along your gums and see if there are any sharp points. You may have bits of tooth shard finding their way out .

I got my perms 8 mos out and now they are very loose and have to wear adhesive. Wait a year at least.
