Fixodent Free does have a after taste

  • Updated 2 months ago
I have always used Poligrip free because I do not like the taste of the flavored adhesives because they interfere with the taste of my food. Poligrip free does not have any taste whatsoever. My store was out of it so I purchased Fixodent free. It says that it is free of flavors but that it is not so. It has left a terrible taste in my mouth that I have had a terrible time getting rid of. I just wanted to let Fixodent know that they need to work on their product. I like the hold of Fixodent better than Poligrip and would probably switch if it were not for the terrible after taste of the product.

I use the org one and have no problem with aftertaste till I remove my denture after eating our evening meal and I have removed all of it from my mouth. Chalky is the best way I can describe it. I have tried a lot of different things like mouthwash, soda, sweets but it does not go away. Is there a product that would be good to use that would help?

I cant seem to find the denture adhesive powder I use to use. Walmart told me the box has changed. I bought the Orange & Blue box (only powder  adhesive available) Fixodent Extra Hold,  For 3 days now I have this terrible aftertaste when I remove my top denture to clean, my mouth tastes as if I have been chewing on tin foil all night.  I can't get rid of this taste.  It interferes with the taste of my food & beverages.  Today I had to reapply 3 times  Is that why I keep spitting up foam & am unable to keep anything down? I just finished reading box directions "use only once a day".  How do I make this terrible reaction go away?

Hi Colleen, welcome to our forum! Please call our team at 1-855-236-3353 (M-F, 9am-6pm EST) for assistance with the aftertaste or any reaction you think you are having. If it is severe, please contact your medical or dental professional. As you read, Fixodent Extra Hold powder adhesive is formulated for only once daily use, and needs to be used as directed. Fixodent adhesives should hold all day with only one use- if you find you need to reapply more often, the issue may be the fit of the denture and that may be another reason to check with your dentist. I hope you are feeling better soon!

Thank you Stephanie, I think the problem is me related.  Today I tried Sea-Bond Denture Adhesive Wafers "all day comfort" NOT the wafer paper after about 10 minutes started to slide back out of my top denture, the adhesive strings of glue went back into my throat preventing me from speaking. I need to find a denture  dentist that isn't  a 5 hr drive  from my home.

I love the hold but the after taste is horrible its almost like a metallic taste and leaves the tip of my tongue sort of tingly numbish...polygrip is too goopy and hard to get off and doesnt hold well so i guess ill have change to regular fixodent ugh not sure if it has something to do with the zinc cuz the powdered does it also....ugh
