First how long do you have dentures?  I have bottom and my tongue sometimes goes there is because they are a foreign object in your mouth.  You need to suck on a mint to distract yourself.

I've had them for  almost three months.  Will my tongue ever get used to them and relax?

yes. you'll soon get used to them. It takes a while, but one day you'll find you don't even realize they're there, they just become a part of you.I have had a top for many years and am new to a bottom partial (5 months), my tongue often finds its way to explore the foreign object in the bottom.

I got immediates seven days ago. For the first three days, my tongue was in OCD mode and constantly exploring the roof. For me it's a stress habit. Now my tongue is tired of the game and has paused for now.

Going on 9 months and I still find this happening. It's less now but I seem to do it more the looser they get. Having another pair made so hopefully that will help. Good luck...

I've had my upper partial dentures for 2 years now and I constantly suck on my denture. Making my throat hurt now. Anyone know if  hypnotherapy  would help me? I really cannot stop myself.

Write more, that's all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.

The dental group might need to check your mouth after treatment to ensure that everything has cleared up. In the event that it hasn't, they may suggest additional treatment. Now and again you may have to treat your mouth for quite a while. It is critical to have new false teeth made like clockwork. Regardless of whether you don't have any teeth left it is significant for you to go to your dental group for standard registration to ensure that your mouth stays solid.

Nope.. nothing to stop it but just you making a habit of NOT doing it.

I still do it and still have trouble getting used to the plastic on the roof of my mouth.. and it has been 4 years.  

It will, in time, just become natural for you (and me) and we will stop.. but nothing but pure determination and will power will do it!

Hang in.. there are worse things...

I have had both top and bottom full dentures for 3yrs, I suffer terribly from sucking & chewing them,  I have tried sucking peppermint's but got sick of this as I still  suck and chew my teeth all day long, only time I notice I don't is when I'm busy doing  anything. My gums do ache from chewing. I had a reline 7 months after having teeth out, I don't need glue they are great when I eat, if I use glue to see if that would help stop chewing it made them way too tight and made no difference to my chewing and sucking  issue.

I would also love a any ideas on how I can stop this tiring problem.

@Kezza​ I have a constant chewing with my dentures (top & bottom), & can't seem to stop. Have to wait until May or June to get my first reline, & afraid I'll wreck my dentures or destroy my gums if I can't find a way to stop this terrible habit. Tried putting my tongue in between the teeth, but not comfortable with that position long. I can't wait to take them out each day, as soon as I've eaten my early dinner. I get them last October, had some adjustments made, but don't seem right. I need help too. ;(

I had mine done in Wichita Kansas 20 years ago and I haven't experienced anything like that, I am sorry you have to go thru that.

Dentures can also cause your gag reflex, particularly in the event that they make bigger to some distance into the again of your mouth. What to do: Sucking on lozenges from copywriting listing or sugar-loose difficult sweets will assist with more salivation.
