Remedy for Pain from New Dentures

My top dentures are curved to fit my gums. We are slowly getting a fit, but when I put them in or take them out the pain is so severe. (I am not exaggerating; I shake with the pain). I try different angles, but it's not working because my gums are still tender. What can I do until they are tough enough? Is there a local pain reliever to rub on the area. Is there a way to make the edges less sharp without losing the fit? I'm not really sure what to ask.

It takes about a month to get used to dentures. You should not be having the kind of pain you are. Call the dentist for advice.

When I had pain from a tooth that needed a root canal, but I couldn't get in to my dentist right away, I remembered an old tip from my grandmother that my mother told me about. She said if a baby was teething, to rub whiskey on its gums.

So I started putting a few drops of diluted whiskey around the tooth and the pain went away. Eventually, I was using it straight. (I discovered I didn't dislike the taste of whiskey.)


When I had to leave the house, I carried a small dropper bottle of it with me. I even took it to church.

Clove oil and salt water rinses are excellent and a little goes a long way with both. Don't use the clove oil too much too often because it can temporarily effect your tastebuds which is a bit of a downer.

Warm salt water rinses should help to toughen up the gums and also heal some of the redness so you should have less pain.
If you have not consulted your dentist about this problem, I believe you should because you sound like you are in severe pain and I'm not really sure that you should have so much difficulty removing dentures.


Your dentist may be able to give you something to help heal the gums and help relieve some of the pain.
I'm sure you are probably still eating soft food or even just liquids but be sure to keep your gums very clean during this time.
