Hi, thanks for the great site. It has been very informative.
About 8 wks ago, I had all of my teeth removed and immediate dentures put in. It must have been a difficult extraction because I was extremely bruised from my eyes to the bottom of my throat. I am very happy to be finished with all of that but I am now having problems with the lower denture which had to be remade. I have very large, hard bumps (which my dentist says will reabsorb) and these are not allowing even the new lower denture to seal well. The denture rubs on the gum "bumps" and hurts like crazy. Icy foods/drinks help the discomfort, but I can't chew much of anything solid as it dislodges the lower plate and really hurts. Should I ask for a soft reline? The dental asst. says they won't do that until the gum "bumps" go down more. What do I do in the meantime as I'm getting really sick of soft foods and protein/vitamin shakes. Is there anything I can do to get these bumps to go down more quickly? Thanks in advance for your help.
Lost 10 lbs but I wouldn't recommend the diet :)
