Seeing your dentist: Who can determine what is wrong and what needs to be done. Without actually seeing you in person, along with some x-rays we have no way of knowing what's going on and how simple or complicated it would be to resolve. Waiting is always more risky so see your dentist asap. ...Read more

Healing takes long: Healing can take a long time & depends on various factors including: your age, your overall physical health, size of the lesion, area of the lesion (lip area is "loaded" with nerve endings= more pain) to name a few factors. Also the surgical technique can affect it too. See your dentist/surgeon who performed the procedure to make sure you are healing, you may need adjustment to your denture. ...Read more

Go : Go back to your dentist and have them take an x-ray to verify the presence of a bone fragment. However a bone fragment early on during this process would not cause that much pain unless it is infected. On the other hand if the extraction was a bit traumatic to the site itself, 6 days may still be too early to start feeling better. ...Read more

18 teeth extracted one week ago gums are swollen sires from dentures ib prophen don't work, fever and sore throat started today. What should I do?

See you dentist: Hi Billy! Your denture should start feeling better after a week or so. It's not uncommon for a denture to be adjusted multiple times after you have had your teeth out. The bone and gum tissue will eventually heal and shrink. At this point you will need to relign the denture so it fits your mouth properly. Usually a few months after receiving the denture. Best of luck! ...Read more

Just had all my teeth pull how long will it take for my gums heal for denture

8 weeks: If the teeth have already been pulled and you are without teeth, it is best to wait 8 weeks before fabricating a new denture. This allows time for both the tissue and the underlying bone to heal. If the teeth have not been pulled, as others have said an immediate denture can be made for insertion at time of extraction. ...Read more
