Can't Get Partial Dentures Back in Mouth?

December 30, 2014

Partial Dentures on white tooth mouldTwo weeks ago, I got 7 or 8 teeth pulled. After I got the teeth out, the dentist put partials in to replace the missing teeth. I did what the dentist said which was to sleep in them and then to remove them the next night. I did what I was told, but now I cannot get the teeth back in the lower part of my mouth. What do I do to fix this problem?

You might contact your dentist for help.

Your mouth swelled up overnight. You can try rinsing with salt water. Also, take an anti-inflammatory such as ibuprofen if that's safe for you.
It takes a while for swelling to go down after teeth are pulled. Call your dentist and explain what happened. I bet they've got better advice. No doubt they've heard this one before.

So sorry this happened. I took a dose of generic Benadryl. It takes down the swelling in insect bites and makes folks drowsy. That, for me, was a winning combination when I needed to get used to my dentures.


I can't take aspirin or NSAIDS and this works better for what I needed it for anyway/ Happy ZZZs to you, and congrats on you new smile! :)
