something strange happened on Wednesday. went to work and as usual used fixodent for my upper denture. had no problems, no pain, but when i took my denture out that night, there was a real sore spot on my gum. never had a problem like this and since have been swishing with salt water (which burns), and have finally used benzodent - can't put the denture in it hurts too much when i bite down. was able to look in my mouth and it looks like a canker sore or something. wonder why it didn't bother me when i was wearing the denture at work on Wednedsay tho. any suggestions on helping to heal. my dentist has no hours until monday, but this is not a "sore spot" from the denture - it's a sore.
thanks a bunch
