New to all this.

Hi I am new to this.... like 2/27/17 I got my last 17 teeth pulled. they were both on the top and bottom. i have a ton of stitches and dentures on top of are not that great as well. I am still swollen eating soft foods and cant chew yet. speaking is still slurred. I have now had to put paste in so the dentures dont move. i was just wondering what the best way to get the goop off. i am kinda bummed all this has happened but its a means to an end i guesss. better at 37 when my bones are still good right?

YUP try and give your mouth a rest.  I use secure call them and ask for samples.

Do Not Use paste on sutures!!!!   Powder only on areas like the pallet. Paste will tear up your sutures and slow healing.  Warm salt water rinses a few times a day really helps.

Yes good bone is great. I use coconut oil to loosen adhesive. I use Secure tape and adhesive. Swish coconut oil in mouth for 5 To 10 minutes, Please spit in trash not plumbing to avoid clogs after it hardens. At first it may make you gag. Spit sooner or lean forward that helps. Not sure what all you should do while sutures are in though. Dentist advice? Good luck. It takes a while to find what works for you. You found a great resource to get through this. It saved my sanity, seriously, I am grateful to Fixadent.

Where do you use the secure tape? I am still trying to secure my bottoms and even the secure paste doesn't really cut it for long. You are the first person I saw that says they use than.

I use their adhesive pads as well. You lay them in your bottoms and have to trim it down below the gum line. I use the paste on top of them as the pads move during the day.

I cut each secure strip into 3, my lower denture and bone is narrow. Make sure denture and gum is as dry as possible. Then I put a dab of adhesive on each side for good measure. It lasts pretty long as long as I don't eat real chewy things. I cut everything pretty small.

I'd try paper towels and swishingbretson with warm salt water until your sutures are out. My dentist allowed adhesive only in the spots where I didn't have extractions for a while. Rinsing with warm salt water does really help with healing. Talking will coming around. You have to learn how to position your tongue in relation to the dentures. I was lucky and had speech therapy as a child for a lisp. It helped with the speech with dentures.

Ok two things, I find that the adhesives gag me, so this is how I get that out , I rinse my mouth out with a listerine type mouthwash and that helps break up the adhesive. I use a really soft tooth brush to get the rest off my gums. I put a little in with my teeth to help break residual glue on my dentures. As for advice, I checked out information on You tube. I usually don't use You tube, but some of the ideas were great including this page.

Secure has their own denture cleaner tablets which dissolve adhesive while they soak

ive tried every paste and strip there is , the Fixodent when your taking them out peel it slowly out don't rub your tongue over it, kinda let it dry and you can peel a whole section off at a time, but if you get it wet with your tongue then it gets slimy and doesn't come off good, poly grip was horrible, that doesn't peel off just stays slimy, same with the strips and they don't seal well , if you get air under your dentures they start moving.

Secure is the best, but only use a small amout and put on denture.  Yes when u take them out goo, but you can also take it off w your finger.  Anything else will stick to it like paper towel.
