I had full mouth extraction the end of March and chose to wait for 10/12 weeks for gums to heal before having fitting of dentures done. Yesterday I left my final appointment with my new dentures. I know it’s very early days but I am finding it very hard to eat even soft food. My dentist gave me some polygrip which I have used since they were put in yesterday but when I eat my bottom denture comes unstuck and it’s like the front of the denture lifts up slightly when I try to chew even soft food at the back of my mouth it then is like loose and it nearly fell out at lunch time. I then find that it rubs slightly on the left side under my tonge the rest of the afternoon and by 5 pm I am so uncomfortable with them I take them out so I can eat my dinner and rest my mouth and don’t put them back in till the next morning. My top denture isn’t giving me any major problems just a bit of pressure from late afternoon on one spot on the front side area. Do I need to go back to my dentist on Monday and get the bottom ones adjusted or just keep doing what I am by taking them out at dinner time and over time my bottom ones will get better I just don’t know any advice would be great.
