I have had upper bone in my mouth removed due to cancer and they gave me an upper denture. It is creating problems for me. It's very painful and it makes my mouth sour and is causing ulcers on the joint of my gums and lips. What can I do?

Get back to the denturist or dentist that gave you this denture in the first place. They will be prepared to fix it for you. The denturist that fitted my mother with a bridge expects her to call back when/if she has problems, and hasn't charged for those visits. It was included in the price of the bridge, like a warranty.
Is it possible that you are allergic to basic dental plastics? I had a similar experience with a mouth guard and had to stop using it.
