Removed Pallet from Upper Denture

Got dentures but they insisted on giving me an upper pallet, blocking tongue from roof of mouth.  I bought a Dremel Tool and used the plastic cutter with a little olive oil to cut out the center pallet.  I used a Dremel sanding drum to smooth edges.  I had no Dremel experience whatsoever but it was a breeze; no problems.  I did have to rig a little jig, to hold the denture. So far works great with Fixodent Plus.

If you research those tube and health centered sites you will feel blessed that you do no have them. If you make your own dentures they will fit like a glove and you can have as many sets as you need and adjust them to work very well.

I had two pretty inexpensive "mini implants" put in the bottom and now all I do is click the lower denture in and no more problems with them coming loose. Ask your dentist about these "minis". They're great!
