Hi Mike, sorry to hear you haven’t been able to find an adhesive that works for you. The level of hold an adhesive provides varies person to person, and can be affected by very hot or very cold foods and drinks. Sometimes, using too much adhesive cream can reduce hold as well. If you are following the direction for use and still not seeing the results you want with the adhesive cream, you may want to try a powder adhesive like Fixodent Extra Hold Powder. Some people report that powder adhesive is more effective on lower dentures because it provides a thinner seal. I hope this helps a little!

Sure thing! You can buy Fixodent Extra Hold Powder online and at many major retailers. Follow this link and select any of the stores listed to buy online: http://www.dentureliving.com/fixodent-denture-products/buy-fixodent-extra-hold-powder. This product can be used with other adhesives, but you may want to try it by itself first! You may find it holds great with just the powder. Here are the directions for use:

Clean and rinse your dentures but do not dry them.

Apply powder, while the dentures are still wet, in thin layers.

Hold the product upside down with the tip directly over the channel around the top of the dentures.

Gently tap or squeeze the container and allow the powder to smoothly flow into the channel.

For best results, put a thin, even layer of powder over the entire surface that touches the gums and sticks to the roof of your mouth.

Shake off any excess powder.

Put the dentures in your mouth and firmly press them into place. Hold the dentures there for a few seconds.

Thanks, Mike!
