Will dentures make it hard to talk?

Are adhesives needed to keep dentures in place?
Your dentures are specifically made to fit your mouth. However, denture adhesives may provide additional comfort and confidence.
Can dentures be cleaned in boiling water?
Your dentures can warp if placed in boiling water. Always rinse and store your dentures in cold or lukewarm water.
