Newly fitted dentures will become sore

At the fitting appointment, I explain that the new dentures will become sore fairly soon and this is a completely normal occurrence, even for well-crafted dentures, made to the highest technical standards. I normally review the patient 1 week after fitting.

 Occasionally, during the week the patient may find the new dentures too sore to wear. In these circumstances, I advise the patient to leave them out and revert to their previous set of dentures. I ask them to wear the new dentures for the two consecutive days before their review appointment, wearing them for the same length of time they would normally wear their dentures. This allows me to see exactly where the dentures are rubbing, thus enabling precisely accurate adjustment of the denture at the review.
