I woke up with my new dentures in my mouth on Friday. I took them out that night before bed. I can't seem to get them back in. It hurts and my gums seem too swollen. Any advice?

I'm Karen, the Fixodent Community Manager. After receiving immediate dentures, it is normal to leave them in for at least 24 hours. The dentures act as a bandage and help to minimize swelling. Since you can't fit them back into your mouth, please contact your dentist. I wish I could help further, but your dentist is an expert and can best advise you.
Let us know how it goes.
