i have a top and bottom denture and the top fits fine with a little fixodent applied. however the bottom will not stay no matter what i try. i have to reapply fixodent sometimes as much as 4 times a day,atleast after eating. has anyone heard of a product called cushion grip? it is claimed to hold for up to 4 or 5 days. any feed back on this?

Sorry, I have no feedback on that particular product, but wanted to mention that if you go back to your dentist, he can reline your denture so that it will be more secure.
thanks slenderella,i will have to find a different dentist to go to.i am not happy at all with the out come of my bottom denture.started out as a partial was loose from begining relunctent to tighten because of teeth i had becoming loose ended up loosing them from loose partial. even thought of self relining kit and try that till i can find another dentist.ordered some of the cushion grip and if it works as claimed i will post a review of it. thanks again
Bottom dentures are pretty much hit or miss. There's nothing there to hold them in except for your check and tongue muscles. I would see the dentist who gave you your dentures about a reline, it'll be easier to talk to him/her since they handled your case and have access to your impressions and whatnot. You might want to talk to the dentist about mini/micro implants to hold in your dentures, they don't require much jaw bone and they're pretty neat.
