Glue not holding all day and the fixodent package says to only use once a day.

I recently got my full upper and lower dentures. After almost 4 months of no teeth I was excited to say the least. My dentures were loose from the start which my dentist said was because I have so little bone structure for them to grip onto. I went and purchased Fixodent plus superior hold. I have had issues from the start with the cream not holding the whole day. I read the package and it says not to use more than once a day. How is one supposed to eat with dentures that flop around and you can't apply more adhesive? Any suggestions???

Mary I LOVE polident powder extra strength its amazing to me. I called secure and asked for a sample and they sent me whole tube. I've used it for first time today and it works extremely well too. I've had in since 9am and I just ate supper and its still holding really well. Hoping I don't have hard time removing tonight. Lol. If u Google secure dental adhesive and then call they will prob send sample too. A lot of ppl on here say the powder adhesive or secure is the best and I do agree. Good luck finding 1u like. I tried everything in first couple weeks but now month in and the powder or secure is what I'm sticking with. This has been a trial and error adventure for me and I'm sure for and everyone else. Lol

I use the Powder its great. I purchased mine at Allcare. I had 7 Teeth pulled and got Dentures that Day. I have had Problems now that my Gums and Mouth has shrinked. The top Denture stays in place but the bottom still not fitting correct. I go back the 23rd for the Gel. I'm praying it will be to where I can eat Solid Food. I'm still eating soft Foods. I'm so ready for a big plate of Catfish.

Confused you go back on the 23rd for the GEL.  Did the dentist mention GEL.

I may have misunderstood her, the Hyngenist. Not sure exactly what I'm getting done to my Dentures. Maybe you all could help me out here. I do know she said I would more satisfied. Would it happen to be a Soft reline?
