Pressure Areas: Is not uncommon for new dentures to create sore spots. Generally, it is caused by pressure areas on the denture bearing surface. Elongated "flanges" or border can also create this problems. Give your dentist a phone call and schedule an appointment for adjustments. After the appointment is completed, stay in touch with him / her. You may need some more adjustments later on. Good luck!
