Once they re-line the whole denture it will drop down to far. The only thing you can do is to remove some of the soft re-line material with a knife or scalpel from the palate. Once you remove it then you have to use the cushion grip around the edges of the palate area so you get a good seal. The more time it's re-lined the worse it will get, unless some is removed.Yea, talking is difficult for me too. For me it is the A Line area. All the Sh, Ch, Ka, Ga, Mo, Or, sounds. Anything where the back of the tongue touches the top denture in the back. I am very sensitive to any space restriction in that area. I sound horrible and it makes me gag. That and I have to remember not to mumble. So, I just keep practicing and gagging.
And it is getting worse as the days go by. Most of the problem is from the gums dropping in the front. As I make the upper comfortable in the front by pushing it up the edge of the back drops (think the other side of the teeter-totter). I can talk better when I flatten the back, which drops the front which looks awful.
Since I am only 3 weeks since the extractions I am hoping that this situation improves as time goes by, with adjustments, etc.
We tried a soft reline but it dropped the whole denture down, looked awful, and restricted the space in the A Line area way too much. So now I am using Cushion Grip. Helps some but I still sound Drunk.:-)
They usually get ticked off when you tell them how to do it. It only makes sense that your gums are shrinking, not the palate, yet they load the whole thing with liner instead of just putting it in the gum line.
