Allister2013: I just got some of the upper wafers tonight, it was a bit of a process
tripping it to fit but now that I know how much and where to trim it it
might take all of 5 seconds to do it. I'd say 10 sec to trim wet place and
stuff in face lol and so fare they seam to hold ok not sure about eating
Noreen Strehlow: I also felt that the creams were creepy and it took me 15 min. to clean
that garbage off every day.
Seabond wafers are a piece of cake to remove in a few seconds but lowers
are huge and hard to fit. I found that even the slightest overhang of the
wafer annoyed me terribly.
What you need to do is use two upper wafers to create templates.
Wet and apply to your dentures and allow to dry (outside your mouth).
Cut away the excess as carefully as you can with small, sharp scissors and
then carefully peel the dried wafers out.
Trim a bit more so they do not overhang any part of top or bottom.
Flatten and trace each onto card stock and mark with an X so you know that
is the non adhesive side.
Do not bother to buy lowers. There is more glue on uppers and you have to
cut them out anyway. Chances are you are not perfectly symmetrical and this
gives you a pretty good template.
Place the lower template on an upper wafer and trace with a very sharp
pencil. You can cut a stack of 3 out at once so 10 tracings will give you
30 perfectly fitting lowers.
Uppers may only need a straight cut off the back and slightly more open V
If you take the time up front to get your templates made, you will save
yourself a lot of trouble.
I do a few months at a time as a "craft" project and no longer have any
2023216985: I HAD THE SAME PROBLEMS , MY GUESS IS YOUR MOTHER GOT VERY LITTLE BONE AND
THEREFORE IT'S POSSIBLE SHE NEED'S TO HAVE BONE GRAFT IN ORDER TO GET
SUCCESSFUL IMPLANTS REMEMBER IN ORDER TO GET IMPLANTS YOU NEED GOOD BONE TO
SUPPORT IT , ALSO THE LONGER YOU BEEN WITH NO TEETH THE LESS BONE YOU
LIKELY TO HAVE. IN MY CASE I HAD PERMANENT BRIDGES AND THEY MAY HAVE BEEN
THE BEST THING AT THE TIMES HOWEVER IN THE PLACES YOU DON''T HAVE TEETH AND
THE LONGER YOU GO WITHOUT DOING IMPLANTS THE MORE BONE LOSS ( IMPLANTS
PREVENTS BONE LOSS PERIOD )
ceal wenn: i had all my teeth out got upper and lowers i think the key to it is to
wait like i did for 7 months my gums healed good and by the time i got my
impressions and dentures they fit perfect because i waited i use the sea
bond wafers and they stay all day and i can eat anything without them
loosening my dentures i eat chips and anything i want i have only had them
2 months i am liking the no glue but a washcloth works good if you use the
glue hope this helps
James Varela: Thanks for the review almost bought this turkey
Carmen Tucker: You better believe I wasted my money on that sea bond before it is not any
good for anything except to take your money
smokeydoke100: It's amazing what you can discover when you actually read the instructions,
Dentures are not a universal fit. If they were, you could just buy a set
off the rack at any drug store. Some people need bigger dentures, some
smaller, longer or shorter, v-shaped and parallel. Now rather than Sea Bond
making X number of different configurations, they make one big enough to
accommodate everybody's size, which you CAN then buy off the rack at any
drug store. This gives users the flexibility of customizing them for the
most accurate and comfortable fit.
I use the uppers, and after the first week no longer had to dry fit it on
the denture to trim it. Now I can just fold it in half, eyeball a few quick
snips with the scissors and have a perfect fit in a fraction of the time it
takes to smear on the goop. And even more of a convenience, you don't have
to scrub off any adhesive residue at the end of the day, just peel it off
and drop it in the trash.
Try them for a couple of weeks using them as they were intended, THEN see
if you still want to criticize them.
Pat Kin: I had all pulled and bone removed on the bottom. Got ticked with dentist
and went to another for another set of teeth over a year later meaning I
was completely healed. Where the bone was removed or where stitches and
drain were was painful contracting lower lip muscle as in eating with teeth
in. That dentist exhausted me so much I never went back but develop a sore
every time I eat so I tried Seabond in desperation. They have solved the
problem so they do have their uses. I use Poligrip on top and Seabond
patches on the bottom.
Tara Davis: stuck to my gums but teeth fell out after drinking something. Does not work
for me at all. Be great if it worked because no cleaning up the mess of
powder or glue crap.
La Sonia Roberts: I TOTALLY agree with you sistah! I was faithfully using the Poly Grip
powder. I loved it because the supply lasted a long time (under $4.00). And
it is a strong hold! I can eat and even sleep in them and the dentures are
still in place. It is bad enough you have to deal with not having your own
teeth, then this company has the nerve to create tissue paper for you to
hold in your mouth. I want to log onto their website and let them
know...TRASH THIS PRODUCT!
Jeff Nall: lazy
Tim Mattox: I like your lipstick and your teeth behind them. The lipstick is dark and
your teeth are very white. Very nice madam
suzonka tyler: sea bond is not good and I found it does ooze after a few houres
Steph Lloyd: I tried the bottom waters tonight. After a month and 4 days of feeling like
I made the biggest mistake of my life, I will say that I feel better
tonight. Usually by this time between the fixadent powder and the poligrip
crap I'm over it and done for the day. They've slid all over my mouth and
made new cuts. I'm buying more tomorrow. Also they've fixed my crazy ass
bulldog look I've had going and I can close my mouth now. I'm not going to
say i can eat food.. But their not as sore. Also I wanted to tell you your
videos are awesome. I've been watching them since before I got them done..
Lol and you've helped me a lot. Thank you
pompsteve: The easy way to trim the Sea bonds is first "find the right amount to trim
off",then just use that wafer as a template and trim them all the same at
one sitting.I so good at it i can trim up to 6 wafers at one time.It only
takes about 5 minutes to trim a pack of 30 wafers.I then put the 30 trimmed
wafers in a dry empty denture bath container.Right there and ready to put
them in when i need them.I`ve been using Sea Bond for twenty years with no
problems.If the moistened wafer makes you feel as if your bite is bit
off,just bite down on them and they will re-align.Eating food will also
make them re-align.
The Gamers Crib: My friend swears by the lower wafer, she cuts one out and then uses it as a
template to trim a few boxes worth at a time. But I forgot to ask her if
it is easy to get them off the denture at night or if it's like pulling a
price sticker off something you buy where you have to use something else to
get it off the denture completely. I've got a box of them and some cream
and some powder but I'm only just into my healing dentures and still have
stitches in my gums so I'm nowhere near time to try to use any of them.
Debra Lemke: Kal; tell your Mom she should force herself to practice with her dentures
even if they don't fix perfect, if she isn't wearing them her muscles get
use to nothing in her mouth and this is a set back. My dentist insisted I
heal for 6 wks w/out dentures then 4wks to make them, 10 wks w/out. This is
good & bad, good for healing but bad for functioning with dentures later.
It takes longer to get use to them (gaging issues) I still gag but less &
less as I practice and wear them every day. Good luck
Jack Torrance: I was told that getting implants is horribly painful, is that true?
kalinjax: @mygalmo LOL yeah they were extremely weird lol oh well, so much for that-
my daughter found them and had fun with them hahaha at least they're good
for something, right? lol
Michael Jones: That Sea-Bond looks like too much work for my liking. I use Fixodent powder
and it has never done me wrong. Stick with what you know is what I say :-)
bfreder: I just got out of the hospital (yes, had to have my extractions done in the
or because of other health issues) and back from the dentist. Today is day
1, hour 3, wow!! what an adjustment this is gonna be but so far so good.
Thanks for all the info, I have been watching your videos since I started
my process, you have been a huge help and a tremendous inspiration!!!
Merrida100: @kalinjax Can you recommend a brand? My uppers have never been relined
(this is just occuring to me now) and I always have to use adhesive, but
it's no big deal. I don't even think about them anymore (except to wish
they fit w/o anything). The bottoms, I can go with or without depending on
what I have to do but it'd be nice to have them at least feel a little
tighter. Thank you for helping so much. You have given me the positive
attitude, a new way to accept. Thanks for changing my life.
kalinjax: @jeo22061 A woman should NOT have to go without lipstick! That's just
wrong! I think that's a big milestone for most women going through this and
it's so funny because I swear I thought I was a weirdo because of it:-)
Yes, we are going to make sure she explains all of this to the dentist-
then go for a second opinion elsewhere if he says he can't/won't correct
Debra Lemke: Oh I can have a conversation with top and bottom not glued, this is good
practice for using your tongue and muscles to control keeping the dentures
secure. Remember I have only had them for 11 weeks. In my family we have
had many that had/has dentures and most of them functioned w/out glue et… I
believe this is achievable with practice. Baby steps and patience's !
Kenya Wade: I have partails and I have been thinking of getting a full plate and idk
what to do do....also what kind iif fix ident do u use bc the cream is
slimy and the sea bond is like tissue I just don't feel confident...I can
talk and laugh with them but I'm afraid to eat with them...what can I do?
lifeliked: no way, no thanks. thank you. i like powder.
mygalmo: OMG!!!! "What is that"? is right!!! It's enormous, but hysterical at best!
If 'normal' maintenance of "new teeth" is not bad enough I don't know what
more can be other than this ENORMOUS piece of whatever. Yeah, I just got
back from CVS and stopped off to see what they're priced at, and they're
around $6.00 a box. Your poor mom and what she's been through. I hope that
her dilemma will be quickly resolved!
kalinjax: @BTBLEMKE This is what I told her to do and she insists it isn't possible.
But I will reiterate how important it is. Thank you:-)
ashleyalicecullen: My mom used to use this brand all the time. She would have to cut them down.
DayJayWo: I use a combo of the Poligrip strips and powder on both upper and lower and
it works wonders! My dentures stay in place all day and I can eat now at
just 1 month 3 days after surgery almost normal again! I can't bite down
w/front teeth yet or eat crunchy foods but I can eat chicken/tender
steak/cooked veggies and salad again. I push a little everyday and work
through any slight pain to toughen up my gums, no pain no gain is true when
it come to dentures I guess! Good luck everyone, God bless!
TheSecora1: has your mom asked the dentist if she can get those little metal implants
in her bottom jaw? they are supposed to hold the dentures VERY well as long
as they are put in properly
SPAHN MAN: I got my full dentures 2 weeks ago, I use original fixodent and it keeps
them in for at least 10 hours and even then it's hard to remove my
dentures.I'm already eating steak,chicken and shrimp with no problems just
cut into smaller pieces and easy to eat normally.I just bought cushion grip
haven't tried it yet will wait for the weekend don't want no problems
John Millar Edinburgh: I have just lost 12 teeth and have had dentures fitted . the upper is cool
although the lower was rubbing against the left gum and was really sore. I
tried Seabond lower wafers and yes it felt to big and throw my bite of
although i trimmed a small piece of and placed it on the area that was
causing me trouble and it is amazing and very comfortable now,thank freak.
It seems to be really good if you just need to stick down the problem ares
of your denture and that will prevent that overfill feelin
kalinjax: @BTBLEMKE If you don't mind (to the best of your ability, of course) could
you message me and tell me what you do to practice? I just sort of forced
myself to fail so if you have techniques I would love to pass them along to
kalinjax: @Merrida100 It's not like what the dentist uses though you can buy an at
home reline kit online. This stuff is supposed to just make your dentures
fit more comfortably.....however.....it does help with retention when the
dentures start getting loose. It's not "intended" for that use but it works
that way anyhow haha. And no, it doesn't last as long as a reline so you
just pull it out whenever it either starts getting loose or looks like it
needs to be changed.
kjbrocky: I would love to know exactly what brand and color lipstick you are wearing!
newcoyote: I wish I had seen this prior to buying them myself. After trying several
times (I am pretty good at figuring out how things work & how to best
employ them), I have concluded they are utterly useless. And like you, I am
quite young relatively to be wearing dentures. I can imagine what it would
be like for an elderly person who has deteriorated dexterity trying to fit
the damn things. The only avantage I can see is they are easier to clean
over adhesive paste but that is moot if they don't work.
Matt14x: I agree completely.....my bottom teeth are still loose, haven't been back
for my reline yet, so I'm grabbing products left and right to try to secure
my bottoms. (my top are fine--good and secure) but the wafers were a
nightmare...my choice is the fixodent powder....i've tried it all, but i
like the powder, best of luck to your mom!!
BFrazeur: Hi hope it gets better for your mom. the wafers do ooze glue come out the
top front denture and yes trimming is no fun... arrrg so at at this....
kayelyn gutierrez: I know im way behind but just wanted to let you know the polydent powder
does not have zinc
Amanda Simpson: Furthermore with the wafer you don't have the mess or the pain of removal,
you just pop out your denture and go.
nostatic1616: First of all, I hope you know how much of a blessing your channel truly is.
It is so important. People of all ages have to deal with getting dentures
and few have the courage to talk about it publicly. For a beautiful young
woman to champion the task is really encouraging to so many. Please don't
ever stop. Your such an inspiration. Second, I tried Sea Bond for the first
time this week and holy crap! It's so secure! Its a pain in the ass to have
to cut it but it does work. Better than oozy stuff
Amanda Simpson: If the bottom wafer is too big, you take a pair of scissors and cut it
down, just because it came in the box like that doesn't mean you can't
alter it, you have to make it fit you because obviously everyone's dentures
and gum line are not the same. I use the wafers for the bottom plate, and
it is the most comfortable thing ever. BUT I cut them first on the ends to
shorten them to fit better.
Tina Star: I feel so bad for your mom,,,that gag reflex if sensitive is TOUGH! It took
me awhile to over- come and I had to have mine adhered TIGHT or i would go
into a gagging frenzie, lol...tell your mom now i got to the point that i
can wear them without adhesive AFTER a reline (have had my dentures since
June)...during that rough period i thought about jumping on the implant
bandwagon,,,but..like you said so expensive and what if you don't like the
work or your mouth doesn't heal after!
Debra Lemke: I just want to add that when I practice I don't use the glue in hope that
one day I won't have to glue them in. Having dentures is hard enough, a
full mouth of plastic and adding glue really takes away from the pleasure
of tasting the true flavors of food and beverage. Its just a hurdle and I'm
sure she will conquer her goal to function with dentures. Good Luck to your
TrixGin: I am able to use the wafers on my uppers but I find that the Poligrip
strips are much better for my lowers and they are super easy to use. I just
have to cut straight across about a quarter of a inch and they fit on each
side perfect and for the first time today I was able to bite down on food
which tickled me crapless! I do have to trim the uppers but I've got it
down now and it works great for me! I don't like the ooze either. I need to
try the power, looks easy. 3 weeks today, all good! wooho
Amanda Simpson: I Never use to top wafers EVER but I swear by the bottom ones, it doesn't
affect my bite at all and it keeps my gums from getting so irritated
mygalmo: @BTBLEMKE You are so correct about this being "good & bad". My b/f sister
is a hygienist, and my family who are surgeons have a lot of knowledge
about the physical and biological aspects of healing. Each have stated
other than taking the denture out to rinse & clean, it's critical to leave
in during the 1st 24-72 hours b/cuz it acts as a bandage to the wound; will
shield the gums from food, and will help gums to adapt 90% faster w/it in
than out. Said rinse 3-5x's per day & leave out @ night
Merrida100: I was using those little adhesive strips, same idea but they come in narrow
strips about an inch and a half long, quarter inch wide or so. And you just
wet 'em and stick them where you want them. They don't get put all over the
whole denture. She might find those helpful, but, heads up, they're a pain
in the butt because like Seabond, you do have to wet each little strip and
apply. But being little strips there's no "wrinkles" and cutting to fit. I
still can't "go bare"-I need my adhesive.
jeo22061: Toilet paper! LOL!!! I went lipstick shopping this past weekend! I can't
wait to wear lip color after 30 some years! I hope that your mom goes back
to the dentist with her complaints and concerns!
Chef de NYC: Thanks! I'm more info ultrasound type of work. I learn most of the stuff myself online. Just only recently start looking for a school to make things "official". Hehe
