cleaning, adding more adhesive?

Just got full upper plate. I read that one should use adhesive only once a day. But, one should also remove & clean or rinse dentures after every meal ? If so, doesn't the adhesive need to be re-applied each time ?

I was never told to take them out after every meal. I do carry a travel toothbrush in my purse to brush with water, since we can't really feel if there is food on our teeth anymore.

Hope this helps.

Thank you so much Elizabeth! You are so kind! I've been meaning to email you to check and see how Ralfie is doing, but let's save that for an email. :-)

Elizabeth, I'm so happy that you are getting your hard reline done soon! I know how much trouble you have had with those teeth!

Shay, you are super sweet! I'm REALLY glad that your doctor gave you a script for valium! I think that will help tremendously! Have you ever taken them before? Did the doctor give you enough to take one the night before, in case you need it? I know you are going to do GREAT! You are a Rockstar!

As for "Franky" (s)he has been deleted. At least that version has been. Unfortunately, one or all of them will be back, or already are, with a vengeance.

I stay on here because of people like you 2 ladies!

I'll try to get that list together Shay. I should just take a picture of my "basket of denture stuff". Lol

Keep in touch ladies!

I don't know what to expect with the Valium. I have never taken it before. My doc only gave me 1. I have a sleeping pill that I take and I hope that is enough to fall asleep with. I will be so nervous the night before!! Thanks for the encouragement I need it lol.

You'll do great! If you are taking a sleeping pill the night before, make sure that you relax enough to let it work. I'm sure you know what I mean. Make sure you do the same thing with the valium - let it work. I'll make sure I'm available for chatting the night before :-)

Blaine, sure things get answered quickly on DANS because some people, like you are logged in 24/7. They have no life. And the most active people there (Blaine, TimR, Steve, Amanda) are the same ones who come to DL with fake profiles to stir up trouble. How many times have you been deleted? Too many to count.

HeatherP, I cannot believe that some people actually have nothing better to do with their lives then go from denture site to denture site with the intention of starting arguments and making mean, nasty childlike comments And then think somebody has the time to argue back with them. Get a life people whoever you are.
