I feel a need to clairify

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.

The adhesive is awful at times, especially if it clumps and forms a new "perceived" level of gum. ! The powder does not work on the bottom level of teeth.

I can't get paste or powder to hold my bottoms in place! But anything my uppers in. The only adhesive that works for me right now is Secure.

And then Clean It's are the secret to getting any thing off my upper palate, saliva & coffee removes my lowers!
