Efferdent or Polident I also have sensitivity issues.  I use SECURE paste they also sell cleaners.  Call them and they will send samples.  If u r using SECURE ask them what you should use if u decide not to go with their brand.  Please post what they say.

Not using paste bc I just had my surgery weds... so I'm still raw under the denture...
I will call when I can speak better... still sound like I have a sock in my mouth...
I will look into efferdent aslo...
I haven't cleaned overnight just yet.. seeing surgeon tomorrow for my 1 week post op... so I want to make sure I'm ok to leave them out over night now... just want to find something not harsh..

Did you hear about Dawn dish soap being used??

You can definitely use dawn to clean your teeth. Just make sure you rinse them really well afterwards so you don't get yucky soap taste in your mouth.

It's good to use SOMETHING to clean and freshen them.
Somehow a lot of bacteria ends up in your mouth and dentures.
Maybe I saw that Polident TV Commercial one too many times? LOL

That's hilarious..
But did you catch that though? ... 99.9% of ODER CAUSING bacteria...
Why not say 99.9% bscteria?...
So lysol says 99.9% virus bacteria... does this commercial mean that the bacteria it kills is only for oder? Why not virus bacteria lol
Thinking too much...

Yeah I did.  IDK?
Drop a shot or two of your favorite 80 proof adult beverage in with them.
(a) It just may kill 100% of ALL bacteria...
- or -
(b) Add shots until you don't care anymore?
On a serious note, a few drops of Dawn works really well.

It figures the ONE Fixodent Product that I actually have and use (in addition to Secure Tablets) is (a) Made in Germany and (b) No Longer appears on the Fixodent web site.

You can still buy it on Amazon and other places.....   AND
IT SAYS ANTI-BACTERIAL (not just oder-causing) so I assume it gets 'em all?
I've got two boxes left.  I may stock up?

About the product
  • Provides Advanced Whitening from the makers of Whitestrips
  • Cleans, removes stains, protects against future stains and help restore natural color of dentures
  • Antibacterial denture cleanser

@AC forget that idea.  I just noticed the words "Contains Persulfate, a known allergen" on that box and you said you were sensitive to stuff.   Not sure how that would work out for you?

Not sure why would do anything overnight? Want them cleaned and waiting, ready to go immediately. Emergency? Whether I replace them or not.
My dentist told me to use the box. Sounds silly, but it keeps them continually protected.
Warned against baking soda as abrasive. Occasional use of diluted bleach for just a few minutes is ok.
Just place mine in the inside lid, moisten and gently brush with your soft toothbrush and regular bar soap as dove, or any you are comfortable with.
Then place in deep portion of box, keeping in box, rinse with some water until clear. Still gently brushing all sides.
Store in some water until use.
Works well? Not fiddle. Donot want a brilliant white that screams artificial .

I'm with Ted - that ultrasonic cleaner is amazing.  I got the cheapest one I could find on Amazon (
Famili FM8000WW Ultrasonic Polishing Jewelry Cleaner with Digital Timer for Cleaning Eyeglasses Rings ) which was less than $30.  From now on, all I need is that and a drop of Dawn dishwashing detergent, which I buy anyway.  I've still got my temporary (or "immediate") partial but you should see the metal prongs that go around my remaining teeth - they shine like brand new!

I read an article about those little packets of denture cleaners and it talked about a little old lady waking up in the middle of the night with a tummy ache, and mistaking the denture cleaner packet for her alka seltzer.  She wakes up in the emergency room because the denture cleaner had percolate (or whatever it's called) in it and it did a lot of internal damage.

That's enough to scare me away!
