No,you have to realize TEETH can collect bacteria. Do you take them out each night and soak them in overnight soak . I use polident for that. I haven't seen a fixodent soak.

I have been sick for 6 days. Headache, foul metallic taste which I can't eat forced to drink even with taste. Sick and nauseated. I believe I'm getting sick from the fixodent and poligrip. I haven't used since getting sick. Want to know when I'll get taste buds back and headaches gone?

What exactly is a reline, and what do they do. All my denist said was my insurance wont pay for one for six months..

My insurance makes me wait 6 months also. It is adjusted to fit your gums which shrink after extractions. My lower fit much better after reline. Upper can't be dobe till April. I just bought strips to see if they are better in any way.

Yes! It was because of the ZINC in the Fixodent. There is a warning right on the tube about the zinc. Stop using it ASAP

Hi everyone.  Our scientific research shows that the amount of zinc an average user absorbs from Fixodent is approximately 2 mg. If your're using other products containing zinc, you should consult your healthcare professional.

We'd love to learn more about your experiences using Fixodent. Since the amount of assistance we can provide via this forum is limited, we ask that you contact us toll free at 1-800-214-8871, Mon - Fri, 9am - 6pm EST. Thank you.

I'm so glad to see a member of the moderator team on the board!  We had an incident in which it would have been good to get someone official involved.

Would you please tell us how we can get the attention of the moderators in situations like that?

Thanks so much

Hi Schelly,

There isn't an option to Private Message an employee moderator directly on this forum. However, when creating a New Conversation, there is a box that reads " Post This Conversation Privately". When you check that box off, only employee moderators will be able to view and respond to the post.  In the meantime, I'll try my best to look at what is going through these conversations to ensure that nothing inappropriate is being posted.

Perfect - it has been calm recently - the troublesome conversations were surrounding posts of individual's personally identifiable information by a vendor or ex-vendor of a denture cushion product, if that helps you search.  Breaches of security like that concern me as a matter of principle.

I've seen some responses on here where people have mentioned possible allergies? Maybe some ingredient is not compatible with your system?

How far are you post extractions?  Can you do soft relines from Walmart? There are  many Facebook denture groups to include do your own denture and many more where you can get some ideas.

Caution on the self-soft relines. The chemicals may cause your dentures to crack prematurely. As always, ASK YOUR DENTIST before using any OTC product on your dentures. Doing any type of augmentation to your dentures may also void your warranty.

For many people the warranty has run out a long time ago and they still are afraid to work with their own dentures..even when a dentist cannot get them made and adjusted right

I am so happy you posted this - I have been so nauseous for days and also the loose stools - today I noticed that I was feeling very nauseous  - it started about 45 minutes after I put my dentures in !  I took them out and got all the Fixodent out and with in 10 minutes started feeling better !!  The dentures I have now are only temporary ones as I had a lot of extractions as well - I really didnt think something would come up when I searched - lol

There is zinc-free polident and there may be some Fixodent zinc-free ones. Try it. Keep me posted. :)

Am glad I found all this information here, I was using Poligrip zinc free and was fine, but two months ago I went to the store and all they have was fixodent and I bought it. I knew something was wrong with my body but didn't know what, tireness, sore throat, muscle pain, diahrrea , I had all the symptoms. Am stopping using it immediately . Thanks

I was using Fixodent powder and I stopped it a few weeks ago. I was having to blow my nose a lot and had blood in the mucous and I would cough a lot and produce some fresh blood there, too. All of that blood and irritation has stopped in just a week or 10 days off of it. I am using Cushion Grip and it is amazing.

I love how Fixadent holds my dentures in, better than anything I have tried since getting them a year ago. But tha awful metallic taste is killing me. Is there any solution?

@jeannette 

Thank you. I will try it. Polygraph just doesn't hold for me as well as Fixadent. But I can't handle that awful taste.
