Ever wonder why your immediates don't fit and how much your gums are going to shrink over six months?  I recently stored my dentures and had to get them out when I lost a tooth in my permanents.  I had to cut a bit away because it had a little mold in the soft lining.  I used Cushion Correct I had on hand to get me through the weekend.  

TIP OF THE DAY:  If your dentist tells you NOT to seal them in a wet paper towel and store them in the freezer....  

SEAL THEM* IN A WET PAPER TOWEL and put them in the freezer for long-term storage.  

*If you have one of those suction sealers for meats, etc. USE IT for your immediates.  :-)

Secure, OlivaFix and ProteFix all "play nicely" with Cushion Correct, the other Japanese Products and DensSureFit.   Sorry for the quick answer yesterday.  I was BUSY Spanky!!!
