Painful Unusable Immediate Denture: I had an immediate denture and it hurts so bad I can not even put it in my mouth.
This was 8 days ago and it hurts so bad to try to insert them that I some times cry. An immediate denture was made so I would not have to go without any teeth. Well, like I said, I can not even put them in.
Do you think this will get better? Should I call the dentist or just wait and see if the pain goes away....I am so disappointed with these teeth. They are so uncomfortable. If anyone is reading this....try to keep you natural teeth. ... Visitor from VA
I am sorry you are having problems. You should go to your dentist as soon as possible.
Immediate dentures are made so they can be inserted the day the teeth are removed. This requires some guessing on the part of the lab technician when preparing your denture.
Your dentist can gently use pressure indicating paste to gently evaluate the areas that need relief.
While this may take a few appointments to finalize, I am sure they can make you much more comfortable after the very first adjustment appointment. Best of luck.
