I know the feeling, by the end of the day I'm so sick of the bloody things. My Dentist warned me that it would be the way your feeling. Not speaking correctly & feeling that they must have made a mistake in the measurements. I'm contantly checking that their in place securely. My tongue can't get to the places in my mouth it used to. I can't chew gum, bite my finger nails & as an occassional smoker, just trying to stretch my lips far enough to take a drag.... All the things I usually do when I'm stressed. But my Dentist assures me, it will get better or to put it another way, what bloody choice have I got??

PS Your teeth look fine

I've had mine a month. Have good days, bad days. Christmas is certainly going to be a bit of a bummer this year, unless I stick everything in a blender! On a seious note, I am eating a lot more things I couldn't. I pratcally inhaled a McDonalds burger the other day. I avoid things that can get under the plate (like rice). Thanfully I can still drink beer (lots of beer)

Oh I've just found some very useful info .. monkey mouth. . Going too go back too my dentist and get my top denture shaved around the top of the teeth so my top lip don't stick out . Then I will be happy. .
