Not looking to give medical advice, but I've been trying to support people who have new plates and also sensory issues. Best results have been to wear it asap and as long as possible. Then it becomes the new normal /and/ the mouth has a chance to heal around it in harmony...... that really doesn't sound right!
Would it be alright to pm you if I have anything specific I need to ask? I mean it's all very 'minor strange' for me but hardly Fortean. (I have tried asking the Tooth Fairy to give it back but I can't quite make myself believe enough so it doesn't happen. )
