I am having a problem speaking with my dentures.
Is this normal and if so how long does it last.

Mike - does the upper plate go wayyy far back in your upper palate? They may have to shorten it. Mine was initially reallly long, and it was causing me to gag. I went back the next day and said, "what the heck"? ha. He said, "Oh yeah, its way too long/big for your mouth". I thought all of this was why they took a mold of my mouth in the first place???????

Donald, I notice alot of salivating also. I think its because we now kind of suck on the upper denture alot, it creates alot of saliva. I find that I spit when I talk now too because of it! lol It feels like I'm constantly sucking on a cough drop or something.

Your dentist didnt suggest adhesive until 6 mo.?! As soon as the holes from my teeth were healed, (about 3 weeks) he told me I could used adhesive. I find it really interesting, every dentist works differently. I hate the feeling of talking with my teeth shut, I'm sorry you went through that. I think you're right though, the thicker the liner, the better!
