denture issue

I just got my permanent new dentures. I am surprised that the top ones move side to side. I really dislike using the glue and powders. Is this common or so I really have an issue? I would really appreciate hearing from someone that has or had this issue. I thought dentures that move happens years down the line but not when they are new!
Thank you

Hi Rich my teeth are my own thank goodness.
I would go back to the dentist and have your dentures adjusted.

They should certainly not move side to side or in any other unintended direction.

They are, of course, allowed to move up and down when you chew.

I'd go back to the dentist who, incidentally, should have checked the fit!

Re: denture issue

Rich my husband a denture wearer says yours don't fit properly. They need refitting. He found dentists pretty useless for dentures and goes to a denture makers laboratory to get his fitted and made. They make a much better quality one cheaper too.

If you do use glue only use a tiny bit in tiny blobs don't use too much. Also try to get a none flavoured one or you taste mint all day.

Re: denture issue

For any kind of dental treatment, check the General Dental Website and find some with the speciality you're looking for. Too many non qualified dentists professing they can provide a cure-all.

Re: denture issue

I don't have falsies (yet) but moving side to side can't be a good look... except for camels.
