I had all my teeth pulled a week ago. Immediate dentures were done. Dentist took the tops out yesterday with no issues, bottom wouldn't come out. Went to the oral surgeon he got the bottoms out but they wouldn't go back in. The pain is intense. I don't have the bottoms in and go back tomorrow. I can feel a bump on my bottom gum line feels like bone. I'm beginning to feel like I'm nuts.
I have done ice, salt water rinsing and ibuprofen. It just keeps throbbing. I went back to the dentist he said just don't wear the bottom ones. I never thought this would be so painful I can't chew anything and yogurt, potatoes, applesauce, ice cream is getting pretty old. If my gums didn't feel so raw I would feel so much better.At least its only the left side that is so painful
ice cream, yogurt. Scrambled eggs. Soup but not too hot. Cottage cheese, mashed potatoes and over cooked carrots oatmeal. Also ensure or similar shake. That's pretty much what I lived on the first few weeks. Take it slow. Also drink a lot of water. Do you have them in or out now?
If you want more "real food" you can crumble sausage in gravy and put it over biscuits or toast and eggs Sloppy joes, hamburger helper, chili are some good options too. You can "eat" a lot of stuff if you get creative. Eat stuff that you can mash against the top plate or the roof of your mouth... stuff where chewing is optional.
No he didn't give me any suggestions for the ulcers. They are all on the left side , on top of my gums, the outside, and the front of my gums. I go back to the oral surgeon tomorrow. I have a bone sticking out on the left also. I tried again today to get the bottom in but to painful it just don't go over the bone and my gums hurt. Tops are getting better, the roof of my mouth gets sore by night time.
I went through the same thing over a year ago. I eventually lost almost 40lbs because I couldn't eat. And what I could eat tasted horrible. But, now I feel like the old me. I never even notice the dentures. They feel like they are apart of me. It will come to you also. But it will suck bad, for awhile.
