We are so sorry to hear about what is happening. Like you don't have enough going on during the last 24 hours in addition to them falling out. Rest assured this is common and when you are with your dentist tomorrow make sure that he or she knows about it. 

This is a time of transition for your mouth. Your gums will be swollen and you may need to have your “bite” modified to even out the pressure during this time of transition. Regular visits to your dentist are important to examine any irregular area during and after healing.

As for chewing, this, too, is an adjustment, and you will need to learn how to chew with dentures in. That will come with time and you should be eating very soft foods and don’t require much chewing, such as scrambled eggs, baked potatoes, and pasta. As you become adjusted to the dentures and learn how to adjust your tongue to help hold the denture in place, add some other foods.

New denture wearers often require some time to become accustomed to the feeling of an upper denture. In general, gagging can occur for a few reasons. First, loose dentures can move around and touch the tongue or other parts of the throat. Sometimes, the dentures may be slightly too big, causing them to contact the throat more than they should. In these cases, they should be adjusted, relined, or even remade. Let us know if you have any other questions. Thanks!

If water comes out of your nose when you rinse im guessing the root of one of your teeth may went all tje way to your sinus cavity. Im no dentist or dovtor nut you might want to get it checked.

Jaycee -- when I had my left side molars pull I had one that opened a hole to my sinus. It added 3 weeks to the healing process, delaying my final extractions and denture insertion. It did completely heal on its own with just the extra time. Make sure you tell your dentist though. Good Luck!

Hello

Thanks for all the support guys, went to see the Dentist today, Denture is fitting alot better, he said it will take a little time, but at lease its not slipping anymore.

as for the hole, he said does happen... but he suggests that i wait 3 weeks if it does not close he will put something in to help the healing process,

thanks for support, good thing i i've lost 4kgs so far hahaha
