I had 28 extractions and immediate dentures put in April 11,2018 - the top dentures were awful, the teeth were too big/long and the top gums were super bulky that I was not able to even close my mouth. My dentist promised that day to give me a new top set for free but I tried to wear the awful ones just so I could heal properly ect, that is until the 2nd day when he instructed me to take them out for sleep and I was never able to put them back in, he informed me that it would be okay and not to worry about wearing them because I was getting this new top set, well here I am on May 29, 2018 and still no top teeth at all. I have went in now for 2 wax try-in appointments and the teeth still  look the same every single time - big/long/bulky, my mouth will not rest easy on its own and I am starting to get so discouraged, My dentist does not have a lab so every time something is wrong I have to wait 2 more week or a bit longer to try on the " fixed " try-ins and there is still always something wrong with them. 
I have went this entire time basically staying in my house because I have had no top teeth, eating is a real challenge too and honestly my bottom teeth are no longer fitting right either, super lose even when using adhesive. 
Dentist says this is normal and nothing that a soft reline wont fix BUT i cant get a reline if i have no top denture. 

Sorry for venting, any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated. I just dont know what to do anymore, once i do finally get some dentures I will have to start the whole process of getting used to them ect, when I feel like I should of started that over a month ago :(
