Unfortunatly lower dentures are always a problem
I know nothing about fixadents but I do know 2 implants
would solve your problem. If you finance them thru a
credit card (Discover Card has excellent new customer rates)
or some other plan it might work for you
You can wash your dentures with soap and water and it will appear that you have removed all of the applied remnants from you dentures. But, if you soak them over night and check them in the morning you will find that there is a swollen film layer of Secure still in place where the night before you cleaned every little bit of the adhesive off of the denture, or at least it appeared that you cleaned and removed any remaining Secure adhesive.
Now the Secure Cleaning Tablets can pose another issue if you use a temporary soft lining material. Seems that the Secure Tablets are so strong that it not only removes the waterproof Secure adhesive that remained to the denture, but also causes many of the temporary soft lining material to release their hold and or soften and loose their shape.
Kind of a Catch 22 situation to say the least.
I have also tried Cushion Grip, matter of fact I am on my second tube. I find Cushion Grip not to be a adhesive but more of a soft reline material. It will snug up the fit of dentures, but in my case at least, it does not provide a holding grip on it's own. Even the directions make mention that may people will still use a denture adhesive to provide more of a confident grip.
I have the same issue with limited bone or gum to hold my lower in place. It's only been 3 months since my extractions and I will deal with trying to find better grip over the next 3 months. Who knows, I may at that time to have my permanent dentures made and fitted then Super Glue those suckers in place. Wonder if Flex Seal will work on dental issues. Yes I jest, but sometimes you simply have to make the best out of a bad situation.
If I find the answer to our problem, I will certainly share the secret with you. And would expect you to do the same in return....lol
