Re: eat problem and excessive saliva

Protein shakes are a godsend when you get teeth taken out. When I was younger and had to get teeth pulled, I used to make macaroni and cheese (make the noodles as mushy as possible without being totally congealed and disgusting) and mash it between my tongue and the roof of my mouth so as to avoid ...
