after 2 and a half weeks I used denture adhesive. Worked great., made an amazing positive difference. Problem here is I can't seem to get them out. Any tips how to loosen things up to remove them more easily and less painfully?

Hi Bethany, try swishing your mouth with warm water or a mouthwash to help loosen the seal, then slowly and steadily pull the denture up in a rocking motion. If you still can't get your dentures out, you can also try puffing out your cheeks or attempting to (carefully!) bite into a firm fruit or vegetable. If you have any questions, you can always feel free to give us a call at 1-800-214-8871. We're open Monday through Friday from 9:00-6:00 Eastern time.

Thank-you Cassandra worked like a charm. I didn't have to puff out my cheeks or bite in to anything. Just warm water swish and rocking up motion. Thank-You!

Bethany.........I don't know how to say this............but I am so impressed with your problem.   Are you telling me that you adhesive is THAT good.  Really.   So even while eating it didn't pop up in the back or half a baked potato did find its way under your denture?    Which product is this as I have tried them all.

I've found the best way to loosen them is to try to keep them in. lol  warm soup a sip or 2 of mountain dew, etc. seem to work wonders. pops them loose every time. Of course I'm 2 1/2 weeks into  full upper and lower immediate dentures after 27 extractions, so they are getting pretty loose now.

Yes Bethany, we are anxious to know what has been working to keep your bottom denture in. It would be great to know if it would also keep the top dentuee in, white waiting to get realignments done.

I am having large quantities of teeth pulled and upper and lower dentures placed. What can I expect to eat the first few months?

forgot who posted this but I copied it and saved it in word in a folder called denture adventure. everytime someone gave really good advice I would save it in that folder. after my extractions i looked thru it and found amazingly helpful things. ;)

Denture Calendar

·         Day 1: Start by eating soft foods like mashed potatoes, puddings, and ice cream that are gentle on your gums. Many first-time denture wearers say eating soft foods that are gentle on your gums and teeth make the adjustment to dentures easier.

·         Day 2 to 14: Your mouth is adjusting to the new dentures; you will likely experience increased salivation. You might also experience sore spots in your mouth from the dentures. Rinsing your mouth with warm salt water might help. If soreness persists, return to your dentist for an adjustment. Expect a longer denture adjustment and healing time if you recently had teeth extracted or are a full-plate wearer.

·         Day 15 to 29: You’re learning to talk and eat all over again, and the good news is that salivation and sore spots have lessened. This is the best time to start using a denture adhesive to improve the fit and feel of your dentures.  Using Fixodent® as your adhesive will improve your confidence while eating and immediately improve the fit of your dentures.

·         Day 30: After about 30 days of denture wearing, you should be able to enjoy most of your favorite activities confidently. Remember to visit your prosthodontist on a regular basis to have your dentures checked. A denture replacement is usually recommended every 5 to 10 years.

·         At Any Point: If you’re continuing to experience discomfort during this 30-day adjustment period, please see your dentist, who can check the fit of your dentures. Expect a longer denture adjustment and healing time if you recently had teeth extracted or are a full-plate wearer.
