I am on my second day of 6 top and 3 bottom, all front teeth, extraction and immediate dentures. I have read many things that answered a lot of my questions and I feel confident about what to expect the days and weeks to come. I have waited way to long to take the steps to complete this another area to improve my health. Looking forward to finding more advice from everyones journey on this unfamiliar path. =0) I'm on the fence about using any type of products to help with slippage.
Hope this helps
Tomorrow will be my two month mark, post extraction. I have used the paste a couple times just to see how it works. I think 3 or 4 times, I have not tried the powder or the Seabond Wafers. I don't have a lot of personal experience with those types of products. I know the fixodent free is what I have used. The tiniest of dabs and it's in there to the point where if I don't put that stuff on at 5:00 am I am not getting it out at night. Wow the hold!
As far as the OP asking about products I am new to this so I don't have a bunch of experience with them but will gladly share what I liked:
I like to clean mine with Dawn Dish Soap, the Fresh and Brite Denture Paste and the fizzy tabs. A couple nights a week I use the Stain Away, I drink an obscene amount of coffee, love fresh summer fruit and I smoke. So about 3 or 4 nights a week I soak for 20 minutes in Stain Away.
For my mouth itself I love the saltwater rinses and feel for me it was key in the fast healing for me. I still warm salt water rinse a couple times a day. I also love the Orajel Mouth Sore Rinse. Water I drink a ton of water normally, but healing I kicked it up a notch.
Benzodent for the sore spots. Many cannot find it locally and have to order it online, but everyone with a denture should have a tube of that sitting on ready. It's a denture wearers miracle.
No personal experience with but I read a bunch have tried and love the DOC Reline kits sold at WalMart for 5 bucks a box. It's a home soft reline kit. I have also read them explain how the box comes with two reline kits for an upper and lower, but many shared their experience of using both supplied in the box for their upper. It may take a time or two to get it perfect, but many people really find them handy.
I watched a ton of videos: Beach Chick & Lillian Darling had the two I preferred most but there are many, many on youtube. For Beach Chick's Search Beack Chick Dentures so you weed out girls on the beach. Kalinjax is also another series many enjoyed, but I identified more closely with Beach Chick and Lillian Darling. The nice thing about the folks who chronicled their journey (some of them do so daily) was a person could compare their progress to others & also when things took a left with the video makers they shared how they got things back on track. I feel the videos help you communicate more clearly with your Dentist/Denturist so you get perfection when this is all said an done.
That's about all I have to share, hope something helped & best of luck!
Speaking of slippery... if you don't already everyone says when you are holding them to clean them make sure to do so over a sink filled with water or over a towel. That's a Big Tip. I have had two close calls but the towel saved the plate from breaking. Read just last night I think it was that a woman uses rubber gloves cleaning hers and they don't slip at all when she wears them.
