Secure!

Yay! Woo~Hoo! Hallelujah !

I received it in the mail yesterday and tried it this morning. It holds up so much better than anything else I’ve tried. I was a bit reluctant since I have the soft reline, but it didn’t disappoint.

I was able, for the very first time, to eat and chew a proper meal. It’s been great all day! My speech has actually improved dramatically with my bottom denture being completely secured.

I ordered two tubes, and I’m placing another order tomorrow because I don’t want to ever be without!

You should try the secure adhesive strips also. They last me about 13 to 14 hours a day!

I was going to get those once I have my permanent dentures. With my soft reline it’s not a smooth surface to put the strips on.

I’m going on 12 hours and not a hint of movement in my lowers.

I had that happen a few times, they say apply to dentures let it sit for 30 seconds then put dentures in! Try that also the burning isn't terrible and if u let it sit it's not as bad! Trust me I promise

It's never worked for me either. I must product too much saliva or something. I've tried the strips too and thought they were going to be real good. Within 30 minutes I had slime in my mouth  and within 45 minutes I no longer had hold because the strips had worked their way out.

I have a soft liner on my lowers and the secure strips still last me 12 to 13 hours! I bet the last all day once I have my unlined lowers in February!

That's all I use. I've had my dentures for over 2 years and it's the only adhesive that stays for a good length of time. I'm glad it worked for you.

I also love Secure! I’ve been using it for about a year and I love it. It holds so well. But if I drink or eat anything with liquid, my bottom denture starts to slip up a bit. So I use fixodent with scope and that holds pretty well also. Only for my bottoms tho.

I wish someone would reply to this and explain how you use this Secure. I have purchased both the paste and the strips and they did not hold well at all.

I've been using secure for well over a year. The strips have to be trimmed to fit and well below the gum line. I use needle point scissors for this. Place them in and trim for fit. I use the secure paste on top of that. The paste, I put a thin layer all over the denture. You wait 30 seconds before placing in your mouth. You have to dry your gums beforehand. I do it right before I place them. And you dentures have to be really dry before applying to your dentures .

Make sure dentures and gums are dry! Put them both in and bite down or use fingers to press against gums! Don't eat or drink for 30 mins after, allow it to dry! This is what I do now bc at first secure didn't stick for me either! I had to experiment a little! But now I go 12-13 hours and they don't budge at all!!! I hope this helps

Thank u all for your stories and thoughts. I am awake in agonizing pain from a troublesome tooth that is so bad. Broken teeth at a young age doomed me for my adult life. The crowns were great luckily, and then slowly but surely one by one every tooth gave up I guess. The broken ones and then many others. I have been terrified to go and felt it was rare this happens to a 35 year old. Relieving to hear it's not the end of the world. Going to sleep and waking up with implants is probably the best fantasy I'm entertaining these days. Since I'm not seeing that being a real option. Time to face my fear. Thank u all again. I'm grateful to u all.

I'm 44 .I was like you. Terrified. My best advice is to go to an oral surgeon that uses twilite sleep. I didn't and it was a terrible experience.! That being said.. I'm still glad I did it . I'm 6 days in now most of the pain is over.. gone try some powder adhesive today. Just go get it over with.. I think waiting and anticipating is worse than actually doing it . Go for it. A couple months from now it'll be all over. Good luck ! Amber
