So I’m confused, and figure this question is worth a new post.
As my upper got a little loose, I started to add a little fixodent just on the top pallet part. It worked great. Wasn’t sure if I was going to get it out that night. Yesterday and this morning, it seems to be setting up different. It gets kinda squishy. If I take it out, it looks like it’s squished into a little ring on the denture and most is on the roof of my mouth. Can’t think of anything i did different. Put it it, held it up. Didn’t eat or drink right away. But now I’m getting different results. What could be causing this?

For me it is trial and error. Every day is different. It is a given that our mouths are changing daily. I try to apply the goop the same way every day. Some days it works. The denture goes in well, is in a good position and stays put. Other days, I feel like the denture is off just slightly. Either the positioning is wrong or I used too much goop and it is making the denture feel to tight in places. I use eith Fixodent Ultra or Secure.
