post denture care

Six days ago my wife had a partial done and they removed 14 teeth off the top and fitted her with a new set of chompers apart from the "normal" pain and soreness the dentist says she's healing wonderfully. Today she is noticing more pain, throbbing, and swelling..is this a infection coming on or is it normal to backslide while healing?

As the gums are healing, there may be some fitting problems with the denture creating sore spots.  When are you due to return?
