Now that I got them to fit like I want, I’ve got irritation and all these little bumps on the roof of my mouth. My wife thinks its thrush. Any good remedies for this?

Rinse with hydrogen peroxide, and eat yogurt. The peroxide will kill the candida and the yogurt will restore the natural bacteria that might have become unbalanced due to all the anti bacterial precautions that I'm sure were taken during your dental surgery and healing process

I had thrush on my tongue because of the antibiotics I was taking after surgery. It was fairly mild but the oral surgeon prescribed a lozenge that I dissolved in my mouth 5 times a day for a little over a week. Honestly it cleared up pretty quickly so I probably didn’t need it that long, but wanted to avoid recurrence. I also ate yogurt and took a good probiotic daily, which I believe helped it clear up as quickly has it did. I’m still taking a daily probiotic to help keep the balance of good bacteria and I eat yogurt most days anyway. Supposedly, swishing coconut is another option, but I can’t speak to how effective it is. Might be worth a shot.

Hey Chucky, all the suggestions above are great. Put some Kefir in your smoothies if you're still making them. Salt water helps as well. Hope you're feeling better today.

Josie, do you know if coconut oil rinses works for thrush (or any other benefits it might have)? When I had thrush I was considering it but everything else I was doing seemed to be working. Wondering if, in your opinion, it would be a decent alternative should it pop up again.

I know coconut oil is "supposed" to be good for oral rinses. I've never tried it yet but I have been using it on my face as a moisturizer lol for the last 3 or 4 yrs. I think anything natural is worth a try before running to pharmaceuticals. That's my opinion. I try very hard to try home remedies 1st and the Doctor 2nd. Sorry this may have not been much help. :)

Hahaha I’ve also used it as a moisturizer and I use it in my hair periodically too! I think you’re right. If I see any symptoms start to put up, I’ll just give it a try. The worst thing that could happen is it doesn’t work, but it certainly couldn’t be harmful

I used  coconut oil rinses in my mouth to fight off dental abscesses.  It worked!  It worked better than hydrogen peroxide and surprisingly, better than Listerine.  I was always amazed by that.  But I was also eating raw garlic, (which I chopped up and let sit for 10 minutes), and when garlic is prepared that way, it's stronger than penicillin.  So I can't be sure how much of my success was the coconut oil.  But the garlic worked faster when I used the coconut oil rinses.

I’m doing salt water still. Plus my wife is making apple cider vinegar/lemon/ cinnamon/ and other stuff tea. It actually takes away the irritation. I will be going in tomorrow at 4. The dentist wants to look and do a cancer screening...

No smoothies anymore. And I don’t know what kefir is. Sounds like an animal

Oh that's a yummy tea concoction. Good to get a cancer screening done but I wouldn't worry about it. HAHAHA! I used to think the same when I heard the word Kefir. It's liquid and you can get it in flavors as well. I've never tried it on it's own as I hear it tastes a bit on the sour side. I don't like sour things. Anywayysssss it's supposed to be better than yogurt. Here's a link....

Thanks. I will try anything to help. Just wish I knew the cause. I keep to a very strict cleaning schedule, and since I started adhesive nothing has been getting under them. Just want to prevent this from happening again in the future.
It doesn’t hurt, just kinda itchy, irritating and annoying.

And the tea is quite sour. She said I could add honey, but I figure that would just be sugars for bacteria

Elderberry & cinnamon in a tea bag, Apple cider vinegar and lemon juice in the cup. Let it all steep together.

Today has been a bad day. Anything other than water makes the roof of my mouth burn. 2 more hours until appointment time.

Not sure if they'll want to do a liner now because they would have to clean that adhesive out.

They have had to clean the adhesive every time. Right now I have no hold without it. I spend the first part of the appointment cleaning it myself lol.

The doc said it’s not thrush, but is viral. Also said my recent stress increase could be making it worse. Gotta take antiviral meds and use a medicated mouth wash.
No new liner either. Too much inflammation

Today has been better. The medicated mouth wash really helps. I’m not having much itchy/burning stuff going on.

I think so. Same as what I had after surgery. Not sure what the pill is. It’s flat and shaped like a shield. Even in the short time frame, I feel so much better.

That’s good. I seem to have gotten over the virus I had. Still doing the mouth wash. Over all I feel good. Maybe a new liner next Thursday, at least I hope. If they do the partial I would be happy, but so far I haven’t been able to convince them it needs it. They said I would do better to have no liner and use no adhesive with it. Just let it float. All that does is make a bunch of sore spots. So I may have to deal with it until around November

Make sure they remove the existing liner as it collects and can cause bacteria under it. Yea let's just let it float around. Ugh. Unreal. No reason why they can't do it on the lower. Good to hear that you're feeling better.

That’s what I’ve had to do before. Recently, the ladies I’ve been seeing have been great. They really want to help. And they’ve done a good job. I’m hoping one more reline on the top will get me through until November.

Finished all my antivirals. Noticed tonight that the bumps on the roof of my mouth are back. Actually worse than they ever were. There were none this morning. ?????

Could be. I’m going to try a new kind I think. If they do a new reline tomorrow all will be good for a while anyway

Got a new liner, so I’m very comfortable today. The dentist was very concerned about the lesions in my mouth. I have a referral for an oral surgeon now. They want to get a better idea of what’s going on in there.

Talking about potential biopsy, lab work, etc. they wouldn’t give an estimate, but in the US I have no doubt it would cost thousands of dollars. I just need to find someone who takes my insurance. Don’t want to pay a lot for something that could be adhesive irritation.
I should be able to tell sometime tonight. I’m not using anything right now. I also don’t feel any irritation.

If you don't have any big plans this weekend and will be around your home don't wear adhesive and actually give your mouth a break and don't wear your teeth for awhile and see what happens. Yea it will probably cost soooo much for those kind of tests. I wouldn't book yet. I honestly don't think it's something serious as it's too coincidental that it's happening shortly after extractions, dentures and using goop.

It's probably the goop. Let's blame it on that.

Check the ingredients. Many have reactions to zinc. Does yours have zinc?
