Adhesive is one of those truly subjective topics that vary from person to person so I'll just share my experiences:

First of all, with permanent dentures, they should fit snugly enough one doesn't have to use a great deal of adhesive.  If that is not the case, it might be wise to check back with your dental professional.  

Having stated the above, I have three different adhesives I use, all depending on the situation:
  • If I'm just going out for a jaunt and not planning on eating: Nothing - My dentures stay in place well enough to speak without adhesive.
  • Planning on going out to eat a light meal: Fixodent Powder Extra Hold - I go out with my father twice a week for lunch.  I usually put my dentures in a couple of hours before we go, then remove them after lunch to clean them.  The powder provides a fairly sturdy hold, but does not last as long as some adhesives, so it is not as difficult to remove my dentures after the meal.  In addition, it is not as difficult to brush off my dentures & gums.
  • Planning on eating a large meal or require all-day adhesion: Fixodent Plus Precision Hold & Seal Gum Care - I like this particular adhesive because it has a small tip, great hold, and seems to help provide a better "cushion" on my gums.  I have a bad habit of jaw clenching, so that is advantageous.
I also use Fixodent Original as an alternative.  It is quite inexpensive at Sam's club, but I don't particularly like the wider tip.  I most definitely do not like any of the "flavored adhesives" that contain Scope.  In my experience, they make everything taste like it has mint in it, which I find rather unsavory.  A steak dinner with "Scope sauce" just doesn't do it for me.
