Ever since getting dentures, my tongue gets coated. Never happened before I had dentures. I clean them daily, brush gums & tongue & gargle. Tongue still gets coated? Have good health. Anyone have a solution?

I am courous as to what you mean by a coating..what does it look like. A few times my tongue was white and kink of sticky in the morning when i got up.....but usually my mouth dries out so much over night sometimes my tongue is sticking to the back of the roof. I have only had my full dentures for about 2 months so am still getting used to them. Oh and i dont like them at all. lol

I sip water during night and the give my mouth a spray of Biotene. If I get ant coating, I brush mt tongue with soft toothbrush.

I brush mine too and got some spray today. I think its just from dryness...throws off the good bacyeria and its like a thrush.

It's white coating & it happens everyday. I have had them for 2 years & it's still hard to eat some things but on the bright side, I lost a bunch of weight because things don't taste as good! Good luck with yours!

I just had 15 extractions and an immediate plate done 7 days ago, I am having the same issue. No clue what is causing it either. If we both have it must be normal :)

Ask your denist because if it is a type of thrush....thats just an overgrowth of bacteria and there are meds you can get to correct it.
