I used to have that problem as well. My tongue would burn if I was eating ice cream or drinking a soda.
I think it's from the zinc in the adhesive or maybe thrush.

That could be possible. I use a asthma inhaler as well.
Try taking some cinnamon vitamins, the cinnamon kills the bacteria. The vitamins are cheap to.
I would also recommend not using the fixodent with zinc and change to another kind of adhesive

Stop using it for awhile or check with your doc or dentist. At the moment I'm trying to stop myself from running my tongue over my plate(s) which has led to a sore tongue, not even conscious of doing it. At least I've stopped checking my teeth with my fingers every 5 minutes & pushing the plate up. One step at a time

I could have typed that message Paul. I am always messing with my bottom and top plates with my tongue.

Oh my God, I thought I was the only one doing this! It's like a subconscious thing. And I am jutting my jaw. By the end of the day, I'm exhausted and feel like an idiot.

No, I think we all do it. Our mouths never get fully used to the dentures.
TMJ definitely makes it worse. Motrin really helps me with the soreness in my jaw and massaging the jaw/joint area. Never fun having dentures!
My adhesive helps me a ton though! If i didn't have it I would definitely be in terrible pain from the pressure of my jaw.

Do you have TMJ? That might be why you have a headache. I suffer with it and my jaw line is always a mess with unstoppable headaches, unless I massage my jaw line and take motrin.

Hi Debbie! I hope your tongue is feeling a little better by now but if not you should call your dentist. Also try swishing in warm salt water too.
