I had 6 extractions and an immediate denture put in 2 days ago. The dentures stays in really well except when I eat. It is sharp and painful in places on the opposite side when I try to chew. Also, when i try to bite down on something with the front teeth, the front part pushes up into the gum, and the back palate part comes down and completely out. I am beginning to regret this. Is it too soon to expect to be able to eat? Any suggestions?
