I just got my 2nd set of uppers today (a local hospital lost my first ones while I was admitted there) and I asked the dentist about cutting down the center part that covers the roof of your mouth (and your taste buds). My sis-in-law had hers done that way and swears by it. I'd love to do that as I usually take mine out to eat as I dislike food getting under that plate but the dentist (who did hers also and cut that piece away) discouraged it because he said they would not stay in place even with adhesive. They'd look like lowers. Does anyone have any experience, advice, insight, etc. about this? Many thanks in advance for any responses I get. Thanks for listening.
