I had my bottom teeth removed in June and a temp plate put in till my gums heal and implants are ready. I've developed severe dry mouth and sore chapped lips. My dentist says its normal to have dry mouth during the healing time but hes never heard of sore lips like this. Anyone out there who can shed some light on this subject?

I have always carried Chapstick. In my car, office, bedroom, bathroom, kitchen. It has really helped having it everywhere!!

It could be the adhesive that you're using.  If you're using regular, try zinc free.  I use sea bond wafers and love them.  The cushion without the adhesive on your gums and come out really easy!  I'm so glad I found it,
