cleaning, adding more adhesive?

  • Question
  • Updated 3 years ago
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.

No problem at all! You would have been answered by me sooner if I would have seen a notice for thus thread.

The only thing I can say about the other site is that you have to be cautious on what you say. But I guess that's true on here too. People aren't always who they claim to be. But I assure you that I am Alicia from Michigan.

I am unstable? I didn't mention what site. But you are proving my point here. I REALLY doubt you are who you say you are.

To be honest, I gave my login information to someone else well over a month ago. I don't know and haven't known the password since that day. So please be careful what you are saying about "me", especially when it's not me.

I logged on a few times, asked a couple questions and was told to "go away" in multiple languages . I would have thought that telling another member to go away would be rude enough to get you kicked out Blaine (or Tim or Steve).

Enough about that! I was just giving a fair warning about another site. Thanks for proving my point "Franky"

I guess if it was me on the site I would have known that I got kicked off the board lol. I'll have to check in with my friend.

Thanks Shay!

I just wanted you, and all the others that are waiting to become members of his sire, to be aware of the type of place it is. I'm sure that there is a lot of helpful info over there, but I wasn't sticking around to look for it after the way I was treated.

As I said, I gave my login information to a good friend of mine that wanted to see what was going on and decide if it was worth the hassle of trying to get accepted .

As for trusting her-I would trust her with my life! If I have been kicked off the site, I won't lose a moment of sleep over it.

I'm sorry for stirring the pot on this site, but it proved something I have been suspecting - Franky is really Tim, Blaine or Steve.

Anyway, Shay don't be afraid to ask me anything you want! I'm happy to help!

I'm not sure what you are referring to. Yes, I'm disabled. Yes, I just got over the flu. I have good days and bad days physically and when I fail to do something, such as get information to Shay, i take responsibility for the reasons. I DO NOT have pity parties because I don't feel sorry for myself.

You aren't "watching" anything about me. If you were, you would know things like: I try to help people when I can, I have friends here and I have people that don't like me, I treat people the way they treat me, I don't lie, and I have ONE (1) identity.

If you don't like me, I really don't care! Don't talk to me and don't talk about me. I don't put up with BS because I don't have to.

I never mentioned the name of the other site that I was referring to, and there are more than 2, so you obviously know of at least one trashy site. I REALLY don't care that I've been kicked off and probably never have known had you not told me. Whatever is on there could have been put on there by any of your cohorts using my log in. I can GUARANTEE that the last thing I believe I said was something to Blaine, after trying to call a truce with Tim.

Sorry to disappoint you, but I'm not some "loon", as you referred to me (after being very insulting to people that deal with a legitimate illness)

Shay, I am most sincerely sorry that this has involved you! I wanted you to be careful who you trusted because there is an unfortunate group of people that seem to want nothing more than to come on this board under a multitude of names and cause trouble.

Rosie, the moderator from Fixodent, works very hard to keep these folks away, but she has other duties as well.

You can ask her, I'm one of the good guys. Lol

Hi AliciaP, was just checking my emails after a few days and I saw a comment from you talking to a young lady name Shea about people who are not who they say they are. And I want your friend Shea to know that I know this to be true as well as AliciaP. Shea I am not on the site a lot but I have found many of the comments posted here very helpful to me who had teeth pulled on October 30, 2015 and went three months without.top teeth because my dentist did not offer an immediate. I will finally be going for a hard reline on May 2 and I sure do hope that helps with my problem of needing adhesive which I can't really stand. If Alicia tells you something you could take her word for it hon, sorry that the two of you are going through this crap with whoever the hell Frankie is, Frankie nobody cares.

Hi Elizabeth, I don't pay attention to this franky freak. AliciaP Is very helpful to me. My extraction date is May 4th and I'm so nervous, My family doctor prescribed me valium so I am good to go. I will have 22 extractions (11 on top and 11 on bottom) without gas.Over half of them will be surgical extractions.   I am bringing a tablet with spotify on it so I will be set, I will think about a pretty smile to get me through. Also, I look forward to hard tacos, nuts and frozen yogurt. all things I had to do without because of bad teeth.

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.
