I've been saying I used adhesive from day one after having 27 extractions and immediate dentures top and bottom put in with no problems getting my teeth and the adhesive out. What I've been using is the powder. All it does is thicken your saliva for a better seal. Today I tried "brand x" adhesive in a tube. I had a bowl of oatmeal at first break at work and my teeth loosened up. I went to the truckers lounge restroom and rinsed and dried my teeth, applied adhesive from the tube and went back to work. After lunch of cream of chicken soup, I went to remove my teeth and rinse them. They held more firmly with the paste, and then when I tried to clean my mouth the light came on and I understood where everyone was coming from about trying to get the junk out of their mouths. I smiled as I remembered stories of strings of goo hanging from people's mouths and off their hands. I had a good laugh, so you may as well laugh with me.
