Implant Supported Denture on Lower Jaw: Are Chewing Problems Normal?

I had an Implant Supported Denture done two days ago on my lower jaw, I have 8 implants inserted and then a temporarily denture cemented on the implants. After I went home, I realized I am not able to chew normally with my upper jaw, this is because the contact point between my temp. denture and my upper natural teeth do not match exactly, therefore I can only tap on my teeth rather than chew. This is a major concern for me. Is this a common issue with my scenario? I would think this is due to the mold is not make correctly or accurately, or when the denture is cemented it’s not align perfectly with upper teeth. My dentist told me I can have soft food but I do not have any confident I can eat normally. Is there anything else I can do?
