Fixodent PLUS is worthless. It does not hold and you have to use 3 times as much just to get through half of the day. The Original is a better product! The Best Fixodent product is the Fixodent with Food Seal, they no longer make that for some reason! Maybe it's time to look at Polygrip!

Ron, the food seal product had zinc in it. Held well but it's bad for you.

BTW. I found that the strips work better. Yukky to remove but hold loose dentures until I can get relining.

Polident strips are new. You wet them a little and put them on inside of dry denture, box gives directions. I have to hold mine and press for awhile till it sticks since I can't get a reline for a while.

I agree that it doesn't hold and you have to keep applying,so I went back to the one with scope and also alternate with poligrip all of them make war with you but I find these are the better ones for me

Try Secure Denture Adhesive and Cleanser. Use cold to remove from your mouth, not hot. Order through Vitacost or Amazon. Natural products in it.

No, never heard of them, try to stay away from chain or franchise dental places. Try to go to a local dentist that people you know recommend. Go and talk first before you agree to pay anything. I feel your pain. I struggle daily with mine and sometimes I have to take a pill to tolerate it when I go out. Mine goes back too far in my mouth and causes me to constantly clear my throat. Now I am scared to have it cut down after your story.

I went to western dental years ago to have a tooth pulled. They are a chain dental office. I would go to a dental school before them. If you have medi-cal you must be in California. Go online to the la care site, where they list denists. I found 6 close to me who take medi-cal....then I called each one and asked how experienced they were with dentures. I lucked out, got my full set 2 weeks ago.....not when she pulled my teeth. That took a month cuz of my blood pressure. I was very disappointed at first, they hurt, the bite was off and they were not tight. She has adjusted them twice and I will need at least one more. Medi-cal. Wont pay for a reline for 6 months, so I wait for that.. they are starting to feel good now but I still cant eat much, I cant bite into anything if I try to bite using my front teeth they dont go together right and cant do it. I also find if I bite on something firm on one side, it pops the other side loose, and if the bottom come loose then I can't eat at all. I think its just learning how to do it all over again. I wish u all luck. At least I don't have pain.

Just threw awsy three tubes of Fixodent. Terrible stuff. After using Secure I realized how disgusting that stuff was in my mouth. Fixodent you need to study Secure and make a similiar product. Stephanie do you have dentures?

Hi Jeanne, I’m glad that you found a denture adhesive that works for you! Please remember that while another adhesive may work well for you, for others, Fixodent is the best option. You can read many opinions on this forum about Fixodent users who love their adhesive. :) I'll let my team know about your suggestion about Secure-- thanks for your feedback on that! Also, as a company rep, I unfortunately can’t give away any personal information besides my name.

Thanks so much for your answers and participation on these topics, I know you’ve been a big help to many! :)

I have the same question. I wonder if these company reps wear dentures! They need to have reps who wear dentures that would understand what we are going thru.

I feel certain it's just a job to promote their product. BUT it would be smart to have someone who REALLY understands.
