I had 9 uppers removed 2 days ago and have an immediate denture. I was actually excited to get my new teeth. That excitement faded fast. I look like that dog in the ads with big teeth. My mouth is narrow and the teeth are HUGE and stick out. My upper lip is puffed out when I wear them and they don't fit right. The only pain I have is if I try to eat and putting them in brings me to tears. Am going back to the dentist tomorrow. Has anyone else had this problem?

It's not uncommon for the first set to be ill-fitting. They're usually only intended to be a sort of "space holder" so you have something until your actual set is made. When they first put them in, your mouth has *just* (like, within the last several minutes) had the teeth extracted, so it's pretty swollen. So the fit will be made to accommodate the swelling - once the swelling goes down, the teeth fit funny. The dentist will adjust that fit tomorrow and it might take a few adjustments over the next few months til it's right. That's whether those are your custom-fitted set, or temps until "yours" are made and ready for you. Each set would go through a period of adjustments - multiple adjustments over time. It's a process. Not fun but the end result should be a comfortable, good-looking fit.

Your mouth should definitely still be sore - you just had 9 teeth pulled out 2 days ago afterall!
