  • Difficulty chewing solid food
  • Sensation of food sticking in the mouth
  • Food residue in the mouth after swallowing 
  • Drooling
  • Speaking with awet gurglyvoice (a voice quality marked by liquid or mucus presence in the throat) after eating or drinking
  • Prolonged or inefficient chewing
