Is this usual that still after 9 days the denture will not fit in due to swelling
It is now 9 days since I had 3 teeth extracted and a bone graft and 4 implants in my top jaw. I have been given a temporary denture to wear but I am still finding that this will not fit in and as yet have been unable to wear it - let alone leave the house as I currently have no top teeth.
Is this usual that still after 9 days the denture will not fit in due to swelling, or is the problem deeper than that? I have called my dentist back who advise me that they can do nothing until next Tuesday which is just short of another week away yet. Is there anything I am able to do in the meantime to fit the denture? I don't actually think my gums are swollen still or not to the extent that I shouldn't be able to fit the denture in whatsoever.
My dentist seems to think that I must be doing something wrong as they managed to force it when I had the implants done and my gums were too numb to feel anything, yet I have worn various dentures for over 10 years and have never had any sort of problem like this..
