Denture Adhesive

I waited a long time before getting dentures. My Dentist made me wait about 5 months for my mouth to heal. Best decision I think. My oral surgeon was great, and my dentist was top notch. He worked hard to give me natural looking dentures (not chicklet teeth). I love them and they fit wonderful. I use the cream, but going to try the powder. Looking back, I should have gotten them sooner. I love my dentures. I've had them about a year.

Annella, your smile does look great. My question is how do they function?

They function great. It was a bit slow eating, and my bottoms needed adjusting, but okay now. It's essential to have a top notch dentist. I went out of town to get a reputable oral surgeon also. I had so many root canals and such to get taken out. He was expensive, but my insurance paid for it (full extraction). I only had 2 small bone pieces work themselves out of my gums. My dentist made me wait 5-6 months to heal before I was fitted. I think it made all the difference in the world.

Well that's good.  Glad you're happy and congratulations!
How's that "Bring Back Cushion Grip Campaign" working out for you?
Kick anyone off your 98 Member Facebook Page lately?
Glad you finally "saw the light" about Cushion Correct.
Eric was right!

Yup Charlene, it makes a difference. Your dentures look really pretty. A smile is the first thing people notice. I've seen "chicklet" dentures, and waited until I found the right dentist. You can be happy with your appearance now. A boost to self esteem. It's important to feel your best.

It was a miracle that cushion grip went up that much money I was told even the Japanese product is not good to use either from A dental specialist none of those products are good at all for your guns and they will deteriorate your bone and the gums
Someways bayer company did me a favor

Fortunately Eric was not right this product is no better just as harmful I'm living proof of that that those thermal plastic ruined my jaw bone and my gums there's no repair this damage I have a website started just for that purpose of what happens by using those products

Lookin Good!     Powder works best for me on my upper. Having a soft liner or using a gap filler, can make the hold pretty tight.

Thank you. My uppers are like my natural teeth. My bottoms have taken some adjusting. I'm going to try the powder cause the goo is gross, and hard to get all out....yuck.

Thanks Melanie, I know I'm bragging...lol I waited so long to do it. I did so much research that I probably could have made them myself! My dentist was so patient with me, and worked hard to give me what I wanted. He was wonderful. So many of them are in such a hurry.

I hear you! I was such a scardy cat about getting them. I'm so glad I did too! Best thing I ever did actually. I heard all the nightmare stories, but denture technology has come a long way. A nice smile is not overrated...lol

I always run my dentures under warm water after taking out. It gets most of the adhesive off. Then I soak them in a denture holder with an overnight cleansing soak tablet. I use Polident overnight soak. Cover your dentures with water, drop in the tablet, and close lid. Next morning rinse them real good and use soft brush. Polident also makes a good 3 minute soak if you need them cleaned right away to use again. Every couple weeks or so, you can use a few drops of bleach in your clean stored water after you've cleaned your dentures. Make sure your dentures are always stored in water if you're not wearing them. Never use abrasive toothpastes on dentures.

I good non abrasive one for your mouth is good. Nothing for your dentures. Some people sleep with their dentures, but it's good to let your gums rest. I always have mine in the overnight clean solution.

NO Toothpaste on Dentures as stated.
Still BRUSH your tongue, gums and mouth AFTER healing or away from extractions before.
There is a product called Fresh 'N Brite for Dentures, but I never used it.

Blue Dawn Dishwashing soap is best for Dentures according to my Dentist and ME!

Yep...  great stuff!  I use a few drops in an Ultra Sonic Cleaner.
Works great on residual adhesive with a denture brush too.
Must credit my Dentist and her lab guy for this tip!

Yes, but use as much as you need to clean them.
The drops are for the Ultra Sonic Cleaner and sometimes I throw a Cleaning Tab in with them too.
