Can't Eat or Drink After New Dentures?

I had all my teeth pulled a week ago and dentures put in. I'm still in massive amounts of pain, so much so that I can't do normal day to day things, even house work!


My dentist can't see me for a few more days, but refuses to give me anything for the pain other than 800 mg motrin. I already take this for my back, and I've added 500 mg of Naproxin and nothing is taking the pain away.

I can't eat or drink anything other than water, pudding or ice cream. Baby food, apple sauce and yogurt burn like alcohol on an open wound. They told me to leave the dentures out until I see them, but it hurts really bad with or without them in.

It sounds like you may have dry sockets. They are extremely painful! If your dentist won't see you for an emergency visit, you should really consider finding a new dentist!


Clove oil, found at health food stores, is very helpful with instant pain relief. It tastes horrible but works extremely well. Good luck!

I would see a new dentist, one that will see you at once in an emergency. Just keep phoning until you find one that will see you. You should not be in this much discomfort.

I found that placing the dentures in the freezer and let them almost freeze really helped my pain and swelling. I kept freezing all day for a couple days and it really helped.

Your dentist should never have fiited you for dentures so soon after extraction. You didn't have time to heal properly. Go find another dentist. Meantime get a blender and make yourself something to eat.
