denture powder

I have several comments about powder vs the adhesive. How does the powder work? Can you use powder with the soft liner in? I am on Day 17 with dentures and still can't chew. I try to practice with nothing in my mouth, just doing the motions, but then when I eat, It's like I have a mental block that won't let me chew and I have this fear of choking. Any suggestions? I also don't feel like I can open my mouth as wide, is this a phase. Will the powder hold the bottoms in better?

  • I'm Karen, the Fixodent Community Manager. I know it's difficult trying to eat with new dentures. As you continue to adjust to your new teeth, the muscles of your lips, cheeks & tongue will learn how to hold your lowers in place. In time you'll feelmore comfortable with them.
    Fixodent Powder forms a thin,powerful sealto holddentures in place. We suggest checking withyour dentist or the manufacturer of yoursoft liner before use. If you'd like to give it a try, send an email to smhc.im@pg.com with your name, your username, and your address. Thanks!
