This is my second day with lower dentures. I had them inserted the same day as my extractions. Can someone explaing the muscle training of the lower jaw? I never heard of this before. I am using fixident (sparingly) and have managed mashed potatoes and broiled fish. Thanks to anyone who can help.

I'm Karen, the Fixodent Community Manager. Thanks for writing - it sounds like you're doing well! While an upper denture is held in place by suction, a lower denture just sits on the ridge of your gums. In time, the muscles of your tongue and cheeks will learn to keep your lower denture in place. The longer you wear your lower denture, the more your muscles will adapt, and thus learn to hold it in place.
I hope this answers your question. If you have further questions, please let us know!
