I have had my full upper and lower denture for just over 2 months now. It hasn't been the easiest thing to do but I'm managing!
I need some advice on the best adhesive! I have tried Fixodent (the original and the food seal) and within 2 hours my lower plate literally just falls out and the top loosens and most recently I have tried Super Poli Grip and haven't had any luck. Help!

Secure denture adhesive that you can get on amazon or ebay is the one i have heard the most success with. On here there is a thread called Gorilla glue for dentures. The bottom ones are bears so ive heard. I only have a full upper. But a guy named Ken, his wife couldn't wear hers at all and the first time she tried secure she was eating pecans no problem!

Oh for my top..the same thing was happening. You need a softliner that fits snug. When i first got my new softliner and i just used fixodent powder which i applied all over the denture top then tapped the excess off, spritzed lightly with a spray bottle and then lightly dusted it again, gentle spritz wait 20 seconds take a swallow of water so my mouth is wet, and hold for 30 seconds i was getting 8 hours hold as long as i didn't drinks any sodas. Sodas will loosen them right up for me. I just hate that it doesnt seal food out. I got my immediate denture 7 weeks ago.

Secure is definitely what you want! (Sorry Fixodent)

You can buy it directly from or on, as well as many other places I'm sure.

The paste is perfect for tops and the strips for the bottom. It's waterproof, so it won't be loosened by saliva, water, etc. If you contact the company they may send you a full tube, some strips and cleaning tabs. If not, it's still worth the money!

I highly recommend watching the youtube videos about how to apply it!

Good luck!

I have found the SECURE brand strips to be the best over all the cremes and potions I have tried.  You may cut them in half of quarters or whatever you need.  If you use the whole strip you'll feel like you are ripping your gums OUT, or that's how that went for me.  I used 1/2 on top and 1/4 on bottom / now works great all day w/ 1/4 on each plate.  Comfortable....well sorta - keeps 'em still and you can sort of eat OK.  Doesn't rip your jaw out coming out either.  Brush the goo off of your gums w / t' feels good.

I have the same problem. I even took my bottom teeth to the dentist and had them reclined. Still loose but better with Fixodent free of flavor and color.
