Sore gums from dentures

Common Questions and Answers about Sore gums from dentures


When you have this many teeth extracted your gums are tender and sore....then you try to wear dentures and it's painful. Normally, they tell you to leave them in and to come back to the office a week or two later and they help remove them the first time. I would start rinsing your mouth with warm salt water to speed up healing and call your dentist and go from there. He can advise you without seeing you.
A sharp or broken tooth or poorly fitting dentures all can cause sore cheeks. Other causes of sore cheeks are biting your cheek, tongue, or lip, chewing tobacco, burning your mouth from hot food or drinks .Gargle with salt water or cool water. Take pain relievers like acetaminophen. These will provide symptomatic relief. For exact diagnosis get a physical examination done. Do write to me again. Best wishes and kind regards!
I am scheduled for IMMEDIATE DENTURES this week. I am somewhat UNEASY from all the information I have read thus far, especially reading about all the RE-LINING, ADDITIONAL CHARGES every time and TEETH BEING NOT CENTERED!! Maybe it's just Fear of the Unknown. Also, I have 16 teeth that must be EXTRACTED. Wow, I just have a lot on my mind. I guess you're wondering WHAT is my question? I guess I'm just looking for some kind of CONSOLATION in this whole process.
I was looking for experiences from people who actually know what I'm going through with the dentures though not people who think they know!!
It has been only 3weeks since my surgery and I am currently wearing dentures on top and bottom until the gums heal. I have since had a lower swollen lip, that last for a week and was so painful that everytime I put the dentures on it worsened. It has become decreasingly painful but at times only benadryl helps. NOW, I am also experiencing sore throat, and ears feeling little itchy scratchy feeling that is constant while wearing the dentures.
i would recommend letting your mouth heal for a week before you're fitted with your dentures as your gums will shrink as they heal and thus will make your dentures become loose and sloppy and you'll have to keep going back to see your dentist for alignments, unless you do it yourself. also for adhesive i like to use fixodent powder extra hold because its easy to clean at night when i take my teeth out. anyway, hope what i said was helpful and goodluck.
It may be just an irritation or a denture sore from poor fitting dentures. If not, it may also be a fungal infection commonly called thrush.
I was told that if you get normal plastic dentures they have to be adjusted repeatedly for sore spots and relined because your gums recede. They also told me they charge for that. They said if you get metal ones it doesn't happen but they are expensive. What kind has he got? I am dreading getting this done but have little choice because my teeth are finished. I have suffered for years with teeth and face pains and know that whatever the cost you have to get health things done first.
Does anyone else have a dull ache or pain in their teeth and gums while pregnant! It's annoying and hurts all the time! Any suggestions?
The inflammation can be caused by conditions in the mouth itself, such as poor oral hygiene, poorly fitted dentures, or from mouth burns from hot food or drinks, or by conditions that affect the entire body, such as medications, allergic reactions, or infections. Stomatitis is an inflammation of the lining of any of the soft-tissue structures of the mouth. Stomatitis is usually a painful condition, associated with redness, swelling, and occasional bleeding from the affected area.
I have had my back upper teeth extracted about 1 year ago, and wear a partial denture. Recently I have been experiencing sharp pain in one area of the gums where a tooth was extracted. When it started, I was able to relieve the problem by taking ibuprofen. This is no longer working, and neither is the stronger pain medication I tried. The pain used to be triggered by wearing the denture. Now it comes on when I am physically active even when I do not wear the denture.
Tsang, I think we found a dentist he saw my mom yesterday and is willing to work on her he say's she really did not need all the work the previous dentist told us she did like cutting open the gums from the back of the mouth to the gums in the front of the mouth and scaling the teeth on the top left side of the mouth, and the bone graph but she will need dentures or implants after they take the bottom front four teeth out along with the other 5 teeth that have to go. I am feeling better now.
Around April or May of last year I noticed a little bump just inside my nose. Since I've occasionally gotten small pimples just inside my nose I attempted to bust it. I actually got a little "white stuff", like one would get from a pimple, out of it but it was too painful to continue messing with. I left it alone after putting a cotton ball soaked with alcohol on it in the hopes that would dry it out and go away.
Additionally, NMD techniques are used to treat patients that suffer from TMJ-like symptoms and to aid in establishing the occlusion for dentures. The relaxed jaw position gives an added insight that may allow for faster completion and improve final treatment results. So, the next time you reach for the Advil for that afternoon headache, think of what it would be like to be headache free.
Hi and welcome i agree with others i know quite alot of members posted about probs with gums&teeth while on tx, I know my hubby suffered sore gums while on tx so best bet is to go to the dentist and get any work that needs doing before you start tx.
I have had a host of odd problems over the last few years, most of which wax and wane. Lately, I have been dealing with a pronounced metallic taste, numbness on tip of tongue, sore neck, twitching eyes, lack of focus and some fatigue. My urine has been orange from time to time (couple times a day) regardless of how much water I drink. I am leaning towards possible lyme disease, dental caries (have numerous fillings from the 80s), lisinopril (was recently increased) or possibly thyroid.
My mouth is always sore and I am 'aware' of the implants most of the time. I had such good health before and wish I could turn the clock back. I have seen 3 different implantologists who all say there is nothing much wrong, but I know there is. None of them will remove the implants! I really want to find someone who will take them out for me and has had experience of doing this before.
Oral Cancer Cancer is defined as the uncontrollable growth of cells that invade and cause damage to surrounding tissue. Oral cancer appears as a growth or sore in the mouth that does not go away.

Called my dentist (waited til 8 am!) just got back from visit with him. Apparently there are 2 lesions under the gum on 2 different teeth. One tooth is already loose and needs pulled ASAP, the other he is hoping to save, depends on how it heals from here on out. There were no problems 5 months ago at my regular check up and he seemed somewhat surprised today at the extent of damage in such a short amount of time.
about 3 months post tx i got my teeth pulled out...just didn't want to take a chance on getting sick from bad dentures ....thats a 6 more months i'll get the clip in type and it will be about you pull the bad teeth and keep enough to eat during tx......if you get a lot of teeth pulled it will take time to 6 months....and you should have temporary dentures while the swelling is going down....dentures are a drag the first year...then no big deal..
Approx 2 years ago I had three boils 9 months apart which appeared in the same place. A female friend had a toenail infection which I think was from Staphylococcus germs. I think I sat on something, chair or whatever, that she had her infected foot on because the boil was at a spot on the back of my leg where a chair seat would hit. I haven't seen her in two years and no boils since. Boils can appear anytime so we must keep ourselves healthy and our body as clean as possible.
I never got oral thrush, but with my 4th and last baby (now 11 yrs old) I got his oral thrush on my nipples, and seemed to have a running breast infection (mastitis) which remained sore long after I quit breast-feeding. In fact, my left breast remained sore until I Treated my Hep C infection. The first thing I noticed after my virus went Undetected was that soreness was gone!
I suffered from flu illness 3 times in 2 weeks. Then I have been suffering from sore throat for 5 months now. Also my tongue becomes yellow after I have some food. At first I took 4 courses of Antibiotic and I've been using Dactarine gel for 3 months now. I have a problem in talking from the throat, but this problem is much less than 3 months ago but I still have a problem. This is the only problem I have. A CBC test was done and the result was normal.
to have a permenant reline they take them from you in the morning, and you get them back that afternoon. you can develope sore areas which the dr can adjust quickly in his office. one thing i have seen happen is someone take them out and not put them in the appropriate container in a safe place, and their dog come chew them up!! dont know why dogs love things that have been in our mouths!! lol. i wish you the best and patience getting used to this appliance.
Over the next 7 days (days 5 - 12)I felt better each day, swelling was almost gone, still sore but nothing a motrin wouldn't take care of. So then yesterday (day 13) I woke up and could feel a little bit of bone poking out the side of the extraction site. I called the dentist & he said it could just be a bit of tooth fragment or even bone that has dislodged, and it is common. He said I should come in and he will take a look & maybe pull it out.

Interesting. I don't have major teeth problems but both of my parents did - they were both in dentures by the time they were in their 30s. My mother's teeth continued to decay & get cavities despite good oral care so she finally elected to get all of them pulled. My father's jaw kept eroding & depositing crystals in his gums that made it pull away from his teeth.
I am worried sick I'll get a dry socket from messing with the sore places with my tongue. I can't help myself! Other than that and looking like Grandma Gums, things are getting better by the minute. I can't wait until thursday and I plan on being a very good girl between now and then! One thing, I have a wad of gelfoam imbedded in one the sockets and I'm wondering what's up with that. Any ideas? I will call the office monday and ask a nurse. I don't think it is supposed to be there.
Entire jaw from bottom of mouth to ear hurt, felt like only the bottom right side of my jaw was being clamped in a vice and pressing my teeth into my gums but not just pressing from the top but pressing from the bottom of the teeth too, like it was smashing my teeth and grinding them into my gums. It felt like there was a worm crawling through the entire right side of my face and tickling my ear with it's tail, it was gross and nauseating.
