hi,
thanks for the reply,

you will have to visit the dentist and get the dentures adjusted if they are sore,

please do not wear sore dentures

either get new dentures or you have the dentures soft reline

which is like cushion and makes your denture fit better

my mouth is not sore directly from illfitting dentures mabe it could be infected from the dentures i dont know it hurts real bad and i dont think the dentures would make my chin hurt
Expert:  Dr. Girish replied 8 years ago.
Your Chin pain is not related to your dentures

Dentures do not usually infect the gums, they dont fit well and then they rub or abrade the gum and thats what makes them hurt

the dentist grinds and smooths the denture where it hurts and most often it takes care of the problem

in rare cases you could have a root left behind from a previous extraction

my teeth were extracted 8 years ago, i know what bad fitting dentures feel like that is not the problem how can i tell if i have an infection and what could cause it if i do
Expert:  Dr. Girish replied 8 years ago.
It is very rare to have an infection, the chances are very remote

I would advise you to have an x ray of that area and get your dentures checked for fit,

also your jaw bones have changed since you got your dentures 2 years ago,

My sincere advise visit the dentist

get the x ray

get the dentures adjusted

best wishes
