Are sore spots common with new dentures?

Yes, it is normal to get sore spots with your new dentures.

As the dentures "settle," they will put uneven pressure on the gums and may create sore spots. Please call us at 1-800-657-5038 to make an adjustment appointment, as you will need an adjustment to fix the area that is rubbing on your gums in order for them to heal.
