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.

Can I see them? I want to do this to. I'm so uncomfortable with mine. It's horrible.

There are YouTube videos and a Fb group called Do Your Own Dentures where you can do a group search and locate quite a bit of info on opening up the upper palate. Most times not much  sanding them back is needed to bring comfort. Also you may need to thin out the upper palate some from the side that meets your tongue.  Good luck.

Can anyone on here give an update on the pallet removal? How are they holding up? Are you able to eat or drink as well as you hoped?
