Hi again Laura,
Sorry about the confusion. Using glue as an example probably wasn't the best to use. I meant that the mixture of powder and water was mixed to the consistancy
of thick glue, not that it actually was glue being mixed.
The mixture hardens and sticks to the denture but not the gums.
But speaking of glue, some denture wearers use adhesives to keep their dentures in place. It's not a really a "glue" and it usually breaks down near the end of the day and is easily brushed away. I don't use adhesives because my dentures fit well enough to stay in place on their own. Hopefully, yours will too.
As for the little yellow guy waving, there is a link to the smilies legend
to the left of the message box where you type a reply.
And one last thing. If you have more questions please ask. That's what this forum is all about.
