I was wondering what your thoughts were on this...
You know the problems I am having with my lower denture, and how hard it is for me to keep it from floating, whether I'm eating or not.
It just ocurred to me that maybe it's because my gums have shrunk so much, therefore, making the denture too bulky in my mouth?? I noticed that when I open my mouth to eat, and the tongue comes forward, it's the muscles below my tongue that are causing the denture to pop up. I hate to admit it, but, I don't remember if this was a problem from the start, as I really didn't pay attention to "why" they were loose, I just knew they were and I hated it!
Although it still doesn't explain why the lower front isn't sitting on my gums the way it should, it would explain why I cannot take a bite of food without losing my teeth http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/rolleyes.gif
Whenever I move my tongue, no matter what direction, the lowers pop up and out. Any thoughts on this?
Btw, did you try to Denturite?
And congrats on quitting smoking!! http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/t_up.gif
I wish I had the willpower to do it too. My mind just isn't ready yet.
