ah ,tina this makes more sense ,i have a partial denture ,3 teeth at front and one at back, the suction of the roof of the mouth ,keeps the denture in ,obviously it could slip slightly here and there and while eating doughy things like bread etc,but break your food up ,rather than munch straight onto them helps
if you ,still dont feel comfortable ,you can get some denture glue to hold it there more firmer ,its whether you can get on with them ,i cant i find it ok with the suction of the roof ,and if it slips i just quickly push it back with my tongue or fingers
nothing to worry about tina ,just persevere you be ok
