Dentures - Sore Gums: I've worn dentures since 2006 and had a new set made about 9 months ago that have always hurt and fit wrong to me.
But the dentist says it's my mouth. I have not lost weight. How could this be? They have always hurt and it is just getting worse.
The dentist will only say I have tender gums or maybe I have a medication issue. I have been on the same meds for over 3 years. It's like he doesn't hear a word I say. ... Visitor from TX
I would suggest a second opinion on your dentures from a dentist who makes LOTS of dentures.
Perhaps a reline would help you.
I often use a soft reline material called Lynal when dentures hurt or do not fit well as a transition to working out the problems.
