Hello Everyone. I use Fixodent as dental goop. I take out my dentures at night.Is there a product that removes dental goop from my gums after I remove the dentures?
It is really difficult to get the excess goop off my gums. I  have to get this stuff off my bare gums before I hit the sack.

Hi I am a very long time denture wearer and I can tell you that the when I use that stuff I use paper towels to wipe out my mouth and my dentures to get it out every night. I don't have that problem anymore and haven't for the last 30 years because I use a product called cushion grip and it stays in my dentures for minimum of four days before I have to remove it and replace. There's no bad taste there's no oozing down the back of my throat there's no change in the way food tastes there's no stickiness that I have to deal with I just pulled my dentures out put them in The cup tonight and I'm done. I love this stuff.

Currently you can only purchase that at eBay Amazon walmart.com or my cushion grip. Com. They just brought it back on the market and they're working on getting it distributed to the stores. And right now it's on special as a matter of fact and if you join the rewards program you get an even bigger benefit. That's under my cushion grip. Com

Hi, I've used cushion grip for a period of time and it was wonderful, I am almost 9 months with immediates, (in the process of permanents). Unfortunately the cushion grip isn't working for me now, back to using adhesive and I hate it for the exact reason you describe. I too do not have a great solution for removal. I use my finger nails and scrape it off, all while rinsing with cool water, I find the cooler water helps it to solidify so it's not so gooey. Then I brush my gums. Good luck!!

The powder is definitely the easiest to remove.  Secret to powder is to make sure that your dentures are more than damp when you apply the powder.  Also you want to make sure that your gums are wet when you insert your dentures.  Then apply pressure between the denture and your gums for approx. a minute to the best adhesion.

However, if you get to the point to where you need absolute adhesion try "Secure" adhesive (only available on Amazon).  It is said to be a 12 hour hold, I don't get that long of a hold, but it is an absolute solid hold for at least 8 hours plus.  Down side it that it is only totally removable from your dentures using their own branded Secure Denture Cleaning tablets.  And the residue past can be a PITA to remove from your gums.  

With time it all become old hat in removal of what ever product you choose to use.
