Gorilla glue for dentures

We just got our shipment of Secure denture adhesive today and my wife Sherrie tried it on her lowers. She loves it. She has been eating pecans. She ate a big handful (maybe 1/2 cup). This is the first time she has been able to eat anything with her bottom dentures in.

She said thanks to everyone who recommended it. We also got some of the cleansing tablets, so she should be good to go.

You type in Secure Denture Adhesive on ebay or Amazon. I have heard ones that use it on their top denture say that even 24 hours later it is in there even having difficulties getting them out but not as long on the bottom, but better than any other lower adhesive they have tried.

Gorilla Glue for dentures is just a term that was used to refer to Secure Adhesive, which many have very good luck with it. I myself haven't tried it since I can keep my dentures in all day with adhesive on the lowers and powder on the uppers.

Yes secure rocks! In fact if the dentures are a good fit, the only problem I've had is getting them back out at the end of the day. I wouldn't recommend it if your gums aren't healed. 
Even now I prefer to use a soft liner and then use the powders. They don't hold all day, but probably 1/2 day. With powders I can usually pop the dentures out when I get home and rinse my mouth. I have worn the secure from 7 am till 2 am and still had to work to get the upper out when I had a good fitting soft reline.

Are most of you wearing adhesives with these "temps" you speak of on your upper?

It's called Secure Denture adhesive and it's on Amazon, eBay, or Vitacost. It really is the best. But I've recently bought the Poligrip zinc free in the gold tube and it works REALLY great too.

we have amazon prime. 4 tubes were $21 and change with free shipping. From what I hear you need their special cleansing tablets which raise the ph to dissolve the glue from the dentures. She has tried about every other adhesive and she said this was PHENOMENAL! 

Lizzy or Alicia could probably tell you more about it. They have used it longer.

To quote Gina2 above "Gorilla Glue for dentures is just a term that was used to refer to Secure Adhesive" so I'm hoping that's what you're talking about.  

Five days in is (1) too early to judge the Denture Process and (2) too early to be using adhesive anywhere near your extraction sites.   My dentist had me use Fixodent on my upper pallet only 24 hours post E-Day.  FYI

I wouldn't - there are actual acrylic repair kits you can buy for your denture.  I wouldn't go with a chemical that was never intended to be put into contact with your internal organs.

AnnaLou, a quick Google search shows that Walgreens carries a "Denture Repair Kit" for less than $8.  The reviews say you have to read the instructions carefully and use more "drops" when mixing as needed to get a creamy consistency - but it works and had held for 16 months for one reviewer.

I am so afraid of the dentist, let me say that before going any further. Thanks I'll check my Walgreens (I couldn't find a kit in Walmart). My brother gave me a kit but it didn't work well. I have a "hair-line" crack in my upper denture and it cost about $150.00 to repair per one dental office. I need to get the last of my teeth pulled (7 bottom teeth, wearing a partial) but can't afford to get all this work done the most important is the upper and I HAVE been using actual CRAZY GLUE... YIKES! When you said ... internal organs... it made me think twice.

You will want to check Amazon.com, SecureDenture.com and Bioforceusa.com if you are a thrifty shopper such as myself. I've also been told by a few people that it is available at some Walmart stores.

When I spoke directly with the the company they had a few suggestions/tidbits of info. 1. You are perfectly safe wearing this for as long as it will hold (it is completely zinc free) 2. If you have a smaller lower denture, they recommend using the strips (you may need to cut it down) 3. They recommended, after removing your dentures remove any gobs and place in the trash, as it is not water soluble 4. If you have any difficulty removing what is left in your mouth, try using the Clean It wipes and finally 5. Using 1/2 of one of their cleaning tabs is sufficient.

Good luck!

Ken, please tell your wife that I'm glad it's working for her!

What is the "Clean It" wipes I have problems every night getting out my upper secure adhesive that remains in my mouth, well not pronlem, its just a chore in itself. A possible top for those having issues removing the upper denture, when my upper us hard to remove I rinse with hot water n mouth wash separately n this seems to loosen up my upper denture enough to get it off. It does not solve the issue of the gunk left in your mouth which I then take a medium bristle toothbrush n start working at my gums to remove the gunk. I have to take the gunk off of the toothbrush with a paper towel n hot water because it does cake up but it works for me so far.

Ken, we're you ever able to find that pH tester? I'm curious to know the results if you did the testing.

Great info Alicia, thanks for sharing! Has anyone used the wipes?? I thought about getting some when I read somewhere on the Internet about them, but all of this denture process, products, etc...have beaten me to a pulp financially!

What are the wipes you're talking about?  I had been using a baby toothbrush to remove the excess Secure, but managed to get quite irritated.  My dentist suggested using 3x3 gauze squares, they work very well.  For me, Secure seems to work for a very long time, I really don't like using anything else.
