Nearly one year ago I had my four front teeth extracted and was fitted with a removable partial. For the last two days I have been experiencing "tooth" pain as if my teeth are still there but they are not. When I place my partial in my mouth after awhile it starts to hurt as if the teeth are real. It is an excruciating pain too. I have tried tylenol but it does work.

  • The pain might be due to trauma to the gingiva which is a common cause of pain in denture wearing patients. I suggest you to have a look at the under side of your denture for any irregularity and if it is there than kindly report it to the dentist. S/he will smoothen it out. 

    Till that time you can take a gumpaint and gently do massaging over the infected area. Along with it do warm saline gargles but the first thing to do is to report the case to a dentist (Prosthodontist) who fitted  a denture.
