I have been wearing dentures for 10 months now. I have had nothing but problems with them.
I have pain in the jaw. I visit my dentist and all they do is reline the denture but it does not work. What can I do? I cannot eat with them on. ... Visitor from NM
I hate to say this, but it's time to see a new dentist.
I fear that your dentures may not be made to the correct opening of your mouth, and there probably isn't any way to fix this.
Look for a dentist who prides himself on making dentures and ask a lot of questions. You may want to meet several dentists.
Look for somebody who is willing and able to help you, even if it requires a lot of work and attention.
