I find that I all of a sudden have a lisp and cannot pronounce some words correctly, especially my s's. I wonder if this is common and if it will get better.

I have fine line jaw. When I ware my dentures they dig into my salivary gland and makes it sore and very painful.

After 45 years of wearing porcelain dentures, I was fitted for acrylic (plastic) dentures. I did not realize it until the first tooth fell out of my mouth while dining in a restaurant; not the last occurrence. Then I realized that my existing crowns (porcelain) were wearing my new dentures down very rapidly. What a waste of time and money! You would think the dentist would have thought of the latter. Now I am desperately trying to find porcelain dentures.

My dentures won't stay in when I try to eat. I have had them since June. My top dentures stay in but I'm afraid to eat because they might fall out I feel. My dentist is trying hard to help.

I clean my dentures and soak them overnight but I don't know what I can use to restore them to original whiteness.
