A full upper plate and a lower partial.

A full upper plate and a lower partial. During my researching, I am finding there are adhesives and cleansing products for full dentures and for partials. Apparently, the products for full dentures cannot be used with partials because they could damage and/or corrode the metal. Do I now have to go out and purchase both types of products as well and separate denture cups for soaking? Or, can I use the products for partials on my full denture too? Any suggestions, ideas, answers? I didn't even take this into consideration when I went out and bought my supplies.

You could call the company and ask this or the lab who made it should know.

She got me with that question also but I have metal on top partial and a full bottom. I have never had a problem. I use even the cheap brands with no problems. I get overnight soaks must of the time, still no problem. I must add I've have my teeth since 1992.

OK, I searched and searched for an answer to this question and finally called the number on the product tube ( I decided, after talking with several friends and family members) to go with Poligrip). The rep informed me that I can use either product on my full plate and/or partial. The only difference is the make-up of the product. Apparently, the adhesive for partials is made a bit differently to help prevent rocking. Maybe for those of you who are having problems with your lower denture not being secure, you could try this product as it has a more stable 'holding power'?

Thanks for the above replies!

Having some teeth in bottom to hold partial really helps, having full denture in bottom is much more difficult. Hang on to any natural teeth as long as you can.

Too late now. Dentist pulled all my teeth and now I have full upper and lower and don't seem to know how to handle both plates together. Kathleen
