Bottom dentures won't stay in

I've had my temporary set of dentures for a little over 2 months. My tops fit and feel perfect but my bottom dentures will not stay in place. Every time I go to eat something they pop out. I've had them adjusted 3 times and 2 sets of the soft liner. It seems like the soft liner fills in where my gums should be sitting and I don't get to suction work it. what should I do? I've still got 4 months before I get my permanent set but would like to be fully adjusted to dentures when I get them.

There will never be much suction on the bottom. Doesn't have the surface area that the top does. I have a partial on bottom, and I need a little adhesive to keep it in place. Even with the clasps on my existing teeth

Are you using adhesive,?

Powder probably won’t hold by itself. Maybe combo? Cream and powder?

I’m in dire need of a reline. I’m using seabond and powder on top. Using cream and powder on the bottom partial. I’m running out of things to use lol. Can’t wait for my appointment Monday afternoon.
