I've used Secure adhesive for a few months now. Today it burned my bottom gums for a few minutes. Anyone else have this happen? Never burned before this, just wondering.

It's best to apply it and let it sit for a couple of minutes.  Then there's less of a chance of it burning. 

From the secure website:  10. Answer to: The patient has sensitive gums, how can she/he reduce the tingling or burning feeling?
For sensitive gums, the adhesive should be spread with the finger in a thin and even layer over the entire contact area and left to dry for 30 seconds before inserting.  Patients should wait 15 minutes before eating or drinking.

Secure Denture Adhesive Ingredients are as follows:

  • Miglyol (derived from Glycerin)
  • Polyvinyl Acetate (non water-soluble ingredient used as the base in many chewing gums)
  • Sodium Carboxymethylcellulose (derived from tree bark)

I bought it on Amazon.  I bought the 4 pack for $20 because I have amazon prime.  It doesn't have zinc so if you're sensitive to that it's good for you.  You apply just a little dot and spread it all around.  I mean, very little.  Wait for a minute or so and then put dentures in.  You have to wait about 20-30 minutes before you eat or drink anything.  It swells to fit all of the space you have between dentures and gums.  Sometimes, if you drink hot coffee or anything hot it gets between and the secure can swell to 10x it's size, it's very very absorbent.  I tested and it can last for 3 full days.  It is very very sticky (adhesive).  However, it is flexible also.  When I use fixodent on my lowers it sticks and feels uncomfortable because the skin can't move around.  But with Secure, the skin is able to move, if you know what I mean.  That flesh that is at the inside bottom of the lip, it's important for speech that that skin be able to move so you aren't talking all booger-throated like that chick that's been making the videos for the Russell Klein dentures.......absolutely gross.

I use the secure strips on my lowers. It helps beyond belief for me.

Cushion Guip is back on the market.  It is the best product you will ever find to hold dentures.  Way better than Secure.  Trust me I have tried everything since Cushion Guip was sold and taken off the market. Maria and Annie this is for you.

Secure does have a formula for sensitive gums that you can purchase. I use the regular version. Sometimes it does sting when I have a sore spot.

You can have some oily material that comes out (I've been using it for a couple years). It is a different consistency than regular adhesives. Mine lasts for 12 or more hours depending on the day. It takes a while to get the application right.
