My Mother in Law (75) has coughing fits several times a day. She's been checked by a Dr. and it is nothing to do with her health. Several dentists have said that because she does not take her dentures out at night and does not rinse them throughout the day it is causing the coughing. We are looking for someone to confirm this and if there is any information on line about this. She has some short term memory issues so if I can get it in writing for her maybe she will believe us when we tell her to rinse her mouth out and that her dentures need to come out at night!
