Dentures Ask The Dentist Chris McFarland Question:
Gum Problems: Can't get top Dentures in: I had 12 teeth removed about 2 weeks ago.

I have been having some pressure which I am thinking is the normal process of healing, but my concern is this: I can't get my top dentures in.

I have 3 bumps at the top of my mouth where the cheek skin attaches to the mouth that prevent me from getting my denture in. What are those bumps and where do they come from?

I took my dentures out due to so much rubbing in the back causing pain. Then I decided to keep them out and let the gums heal. Well now there are bumps on my upper gum line.

It hurts really bad when I try to put dentures in. They just won't fit. ... Visitor from MN

It sounds like some of the bone that supported the teeth was not smoothed over when the teeth came out and now it looks like a bump and you can't get the denture to fit over the "bump".

You need to go back to the dentist that made the teeth for an adjustment.

It should be easy to fix, but you should still expect soreness and some pain for the next couple of weeks.
