  • Updated 1 year ago
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.

Jeanne, Hi I just joined the site, I'm interested in a post you made a year ago, about your dentures causing burning mouth, because of the material in the dentures. Did you find a solution? Ive been trying to myself, to no avail. Please help.
Thank you,
Deirdre

Deirdre, we are so sorry to hear what you are going through. Are you saying that all of the denture adhesives you have tried are burning or only some of them? We want to help, if we can. Thanks!

It's my Dad I'm trying to help Rosie. I just posted the entire story. I feel so bad for him. Due to an accident, I had to get full set of dentures a year ago. He got his top denture only n is truly suffering. Both Allergist s did patch testing, and believe it's malamar, an ingredient used in the acyclic resin .

Deidre. I am deeply sorry to hear about your fathers denture difficulties. In regards to his burning mouth issues, I believe his issue is in relation to a monomer issue. By and large, most people do not have issues with the materials dentures are made of. But, if you happen to fall into the unfortunate 5%, youre going to have serious issues that most are unwilling to recognize. Without knowing more, I am unable to offer meaningful advice. However I am inclined to think that he aught to be tested for a nylon appliance. It seems it is the least offensive material that dentures can be made of.

Where do you find the gorilla glue for dentures? I thought that's what was being talked about by many on here? Now I see that SecureDenture is now the answer. I am new to this and confused!

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.

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.

Thats great if it keeps them in. I always describe the bottom like a WET FISH flopping around in my mouth! Anything that gives a really secure hold concerns me on the reverse end. No... not THAT end. lol
The end when its time to take them out??

Cleansing tablets are a ph 9 and so is baking soda. You can try the baking soda one time and the cleaning tablets and give a review of the comparison of the two. If the baking soda with warm water works as well, it sure would be a great deal cheaper.

I think my wife just used hot water last night, and maybe soaked them with 1/2 a tablet from secure? Said it left very little on her gums and wasn't that hard to get off dentures.

I have some dollar general store tablets that contain baking soda ($1.50/box) Wonder if they raise the ph enough? I have a ph meter like you use on flowers and gardening , or fish tanks. I may have to check it out, if I can still find it

Well, I don't know about anyone as crazy as I. But I just applied garella glue, (small drops) to try and hold my uppers in place.

Anyway...I just tried it 15 min. Ago well see what happens. I'll let u all know.

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!

Leslie I use the wipes. Someone on this site talked about them and how big they are. I can't remember who it was, but she was right. After the first couple of times using them and got the hang of it, I found that 1/4 or (my preference) 1/3 of the wipe is plenty!

And you're right, it seems like everything about dentures will drain you financially.

Oh perfect i will order a box and see how they work for me. The fixodent complete is what the dentist gave me and it does hold for several hours if you dont eat much, but the problem of the initial ooze and the battle to get it off my gums and roof of my mouth has left my mouth raw so i have used seabond wafers for upper to see how it works and it is definitely less ooze and easy to fit once you get the hang of it, but i do not like the texture of it on the gum/roof and it helps keep suction all day BUT you cannot eat properly with the wafers. They get food in and move around. I think the wipes and travel tube of the fixodent in my purse for emergency redos if im out would work well. I also have tried the Fixodent Powder but im scared of getting anything near my 2 extractions of the eye teeth at the front until they are fully healed.With all of them i have secured and held them in my mouth pressing everywhere for it to set up, and then not eat or drink anything for 1/2 hour and still not anything like i am hearing about the secure. I can't wait to try it!!! Thanks for the tips and info!

Yes, I've heard that you should avoid getting the powder adhesive near extraction sites that are healing. I have been using powder on my uppers since about week 4. At first I prevented getting the powder near the last extraction sites in the front by rolling up a piece of paper towel and position it on the upper in the area that would be below the extraction sites when I put the powder on. After doing that for about two weeks then I started putting the powder on the entire upper. My upper stays in securely for at least 12 hours and it takes awhile for me to get them loose for removal.

I have been trying to find out if I can use gorilla glue to fix a maryland bridge. The tooth came off the stuff they put across to hold it. Can I use gorilla glue to reattach it to this? Gue won't be on my actual teeth but I'm concerned about toxicity and what it might do to me being in my mouth permanently. I know people use super glue and I have also many years ago but it only last a very short time and I need a long term solution. Every time I go to the dentist they charge $100 and the last two times it didn't last long, they want me to pay 2400 for a bridge that I can't afford. It is a front tooth and I have a great smile when tooth is not missing. Anybody have any answers on the gorilla glue???

Ken, approximately how long does it take for gums to heal enough to use secure? I am currently using Fixodent Gumcare and I am happy with it for my tops but the bottoms are very very loose now. I have secure strips for the bottoms.

Since this post resurfaced, I'd like to confirm that putting baking soda in water and swishing around in my mouth causes the Secure adhesive to let go.  I usually get all of the Secure material out of my mouth in one "pull" - no gumming up my gums.  :-)

I drop my denture in the remaining baking soda water for a soak after cleaning my mouth.  All the Secure comes right off the denture, as well.

I just read last night about alternatives to store bought teeth cleaning products. Like vinegar and water, bleach and water ( that one makes me a tad nervous) peroxide and baking soda.
Anyone tried the baking soda to know if it work's well?

Not sure about that, but I do love my ultrasonic cleaner - for my denture as well as for my silver and gold jewelry, glasses, etc.

One drop of Dawn dish detergent win warm water in the cleaner, and 480 seconds later they're as clean as the dentist can get them!  I do it daily.

As for bleach. 1cc in 8 ounces of water is what my soctor suggested I use to disinfect my denture. I have had thrush issues due to antibiotics and the bleach kills that organism. I was constantly reinfecting my mouth. One week of nightky soaks and mo more thrush. I clean and use efferdent tablets first. Dump that solution the store overnight in bleach water solution. Thrush hurts and I will really do anything to avoid it.

Not advisable to clean Dentures with Bleach.
Will eventually discolor and/or break down the Acrylic.

My dentist snd doctor have said the tiny amount i use is safe and its better than thrush. I can see how strong solutions can damage them but the silution I am using is actually safe for rinsing your mouth as well. I think its all in the dilution.

I have 2 more tubes of "gorilla glue" Secure en route from VitaCost.  I love that I can order $50 of things I'd have to buy at the store anyway and get free shipping.  Today I found the absolutely perfect amount of Secure to use on my partial.  It held so well all day long with minimal ooze from using too much.  It makes such a difference when they don't rock and flop around in my mouth.  They still look way wrong, but at least they feel better.  Coping!

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.
