After I got my first top denture ... the worst thing, other than not being able to eat very well was that AWFUL denture gunk to hold them in, even the powder! I tried everything I thought, hot water, cold, mouthwash, etc. Well I got a sore throat and was gargling with warm/hot salt water and BINGO! It get rid of the junk ... I am so happy! I still hate the dentures and my partial on the bottom ... likely will never eat, or enjoy eating again but at least the gunk has met it's match!

WOW! Those are great tips and I didn't even think of doing that. I have been scraping it out and it's a complete mess, especially on the roof of the mouth. I  told everyone at the dentists office about this site and she is going to check it out and even recommend it to her other customers. I am sure I am not the only one there with dentures.

I have used polygrip, and fixodent adhesives. I really struggled removing polygrip from my mouth without gagging over the gloop whilst I tried all different methods. But fixodent kinds sets in your mouth and has a chewing gum texture this easily comes out with a dry wash cloth. Good luck.

I brush my palate, and the top and bottom of my tongue with a real toothbrush and paste and the gunk is gone. Easy. Brush right after you take the dentures out, and I full top and bottom dentures.

i have used everything imagable . I have ezo,s wax things , all the adhesives at walmart & wslgreens. seabond, snug, sugarless chewing gum with denture paste mixed in , All the powders, secure works as good as anything i order on amazon. It does not last.
Nothing works nothing is waterproof. I have a gag reflex so i do not have much of a suction to my denture. i have tried hypnosis to control my gag reflex. i have to squeeze my left thumb in my fist to try and control it. i have tried clean dry dentures and wet trying to get suction.
i have tried numbing stuff just so i can wear my dentures. i have tried making my own inserts out of cloth with wax. It would be nice to be able to talk and eat again. i am at the end of my rope. i am becoming a recluse. no money got any ideas????? Everyone has their story this mine. My dentures make me feel old and i am fed up!! I need concrete.

It appears Leisa implants is your only option, the four in one though extremely expensive.... Perhaps consider trying the horseshoe denture with a good amount of adhesive that will stop the gagging issue but I am not certain the pound per pressure one would have biting or chewing foods with the horseshoe. I know with the palate that we are at 40 percent biting force per natural teeth which are near 80 percent. Implants adds to the pressure biting force at 50 to 60 percent. Dentures at 40 percent so Id be interested to discover how horseshoe would work for you as the most affordable route.

The denture adhesive residue is literally the worst part of the whole denture experience for me. It's so disgusting. I've had dentures now for a little over 6 months and soda helps dissolve it lol. I've not tried the other tips Bc soda works so well but will def be trying some other things to get rid of it as its def a hassle. It takes me like ten minutes to get it all out. Less now that I have my permanent set tho and they do fit a lot better.

Be very wary. Swallowing residual and excess denture cream has stuck to the lining of all digestive organs. Causing gallbladder, kidney, liver, bladder, polyps, blockage, discharging from pores stuck to skin. Severe damage. Seeking help. Suffering for years. All of my digestive organs are affected until I can somehow get this poison out of my body. We are all digeting ADHESIVE!!!!!!!!!!! NO DENTURE CREAM IS SAFE, ZINC OR NO ZINC. IM ONLY IN THE BEGINNING STAGE OF HELPING MYSELF AND EVERYONE BY PROVING THIS! Hopefully after YEARS OF HEALTH PROBLEMS, finally finding the cause, I'll be able to live again. We need a safe alternative. And I will never believe that our bodies can function properly with GLUE STUCK TO OUR INTERNAL TISSUES AND ORGANS. I have no idea the extent of the damage at this point. As of now, every organ, besides non digestive organs are greatly affected. Honestly don't know who to go to next. I have non shadowing polyps in some organs, and shadowing in others. The pink and the white! I'm actually very scared right now. extaziax@gmail.com. it even comes out of my pores. My skin is sticky and can't get it off. With anything. It's taken over every orifice of my body. Anything to offer please email.

Tammy, I had found that the mint-flavored adhesives were more irritating to my gums, and it is the mint aspect that (I believe) was causing the irritation. And, the adhesives that had Scope added to them were more irritating. (I've switched to Secure adhesive now and have no irritation from it, and they stick like glue. And the residual adhesive is easy to remove from my mouth with a wet paper towel.)
