I have no idea how much fixodent I am ingesting because I can't get it off the roof of my mouth and gums!! I have tried swishing different liquids, scraping, (now everything is sore) I have pink stuff stuck under my nails, all over my sink. I tried the powered once and ended up with a small ulcer from it being kinda grainy. Please help me!! Tricks, tips, advice? New product??

Hi Kecia, warm water and a soft-bristled toothbrush should be enough to remove excess denture adhesive from your mouth. I’m sorry you are having so much trouble getting it all out! You can also try rubbing the residue with a soft, damp cloth and a little bit of cooking oil—we’ve heard that is another trick to get the adhesive out. Hope this helps!
