Any one ever use sea bond for lowers? I understand you need to trim it to fit. Is it hard to follow?

So true L C . Where it is great for top partial,it doesn't do anything for the bottom. Don't waste your money

Lynn, Secure has strips for lower. I trim the ends to make it shorter and cut the main piece into FOUR. Fits me perfectly and comes out well too. The Secure adhesive holds pretty long for the upper, not as easy to get out of mouth. This is only available on internet, i.e.Amazon. I wish Fixodent had a similar product. This is better than Sea Bond and both packages state no zinc in them. Zinc makes denture hold better but also can have side effects.

Neurological effects, neuropathy, nerve damage. It made my neuropathy worse, worsened my migraines and gave me tingling in hands, arms feet and face. Plus I had some stomach upset.

I have a small bit of fibromyalgia on top of nerve damage in my lower back.  Sounds like I need to avoid things that might aggravate it.  Thanks for the heads up!

I was using one with zinc before I even knew about any potential problem. Some people never have any problems but sounds like you should use zinc free. Friend me on Facebook if you want.

No success with seabond. Worthless.

It is a big waste . Wrote to company got my money back. It is very hard to trim . If your mouth is as big as a horses mouth then the strip will fit

For some this might work great. But not for me, at least not at this point. I don't like having to cut them to fit and soak them, etc. Too much time and too much work.

I got the shape right and then always kept one as a pattern to make it easier but I found Secure tapes hold better, some trimming still needed. I get 3 or 4 out of each piece.

I love sea bond.
I can't imagine why people are having such a hard time with them. The directions are very simple. And the hold is wonderful. Finally, a product that actually works.

Don’t use this product. It sucks. It’s very hard to trim. It’s very annoying. Doesn’t work
