Hi Tonja. When I had my first reline, it felt weird too. On Day 16, I began using the food sealant and that helped keep my teeth in place. I can't live without now. Hang in there. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to call your dentist too. Good luck!

I loved it when they put the first soft liner in.  I could eat a bit better but I did also have to put in a little "glue", Fixident .  Then it was many months (6) before the final liner was put in as it takes almost 6 months for all the swelling of the gooms to go down.  Now I was hoping that I wouldn't have to use any fixident like my sister but no such luck and do use some if were going away.  Otherwise I just kind of suck them tight and do stay most of the time.  Good luck Tonja, it will all come together for you.  It is now almost 8 months and truly love my new smile and denture.

Would an administrator please explain to me what a "soft liner" is.  I never heard of that.

Mara,

Here is a link that explains the difference between a soft and hard reline.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for that information.   I'm still looking for an answer to my ORIGINAL question about removing adhesive residue from my gums when I take out the dentures.  Does anyone have a good produce or such they can recommend.  I never feel like I've gotten all of it out and it bothers me.

I've tried everything already in the past few months to get that Fixident  or Polident off the roof of my mouth.  I don't let it get near the gooms where the teeth were.  What worked the best was plain old gauze.  I had 4 inch squares and tried that and by golly it does work better then anything I've tried.  A denture brush, run under hot water and the soft part of it works too but more time consuming.  Good luck.  I also found the Fixident Adhesive powder works great too to hold your dentures.  Once you take the denture out hot water rinse takes it all out of your mouth and like that too.  Good luck.  The Powder I also found at Walmart.

I use very warm salt water to get it as well as a dry towel that gets it out of my mouth

I will swish warm water in my mouth while Im cleaning mine then I simply brush my teeth with regular tooth brush and tooth paste and before I rinse I brush the roof of my mouth with it. It works really well. sometimes I have to go over it a few times to get every single bit out. 

Ive heard others on here mention gauze, soft dry towel, coconut oil, olive oil, and even just wiping with a paper towel.

I've tried all of these things, my friends, but I STILL have trouble getting it all out.  When I swallow the stuff, it messes up my lower digestive tract.....if you know what I mean!  :/

I have never swallowed it, so don't know. I do find it difficult to get it out, especially in the roof of the mouth, but warm water helps. I have even removed it with a paper napkin soaked in warm water.

I have used perma soft two times. I like it. There is a utube on it and the instructions are fairly easy. It is very easy to remove. It helped me a lot. I still had to use the powder or the adhesive to eat. Otherwise, it holds the denture in place

With all the work I have done, including extractions has cost me $4,400 out-of-pocket at Comfort Dental. I highly recommend them. Aspen Dental wanted to charge me $15,000.
