I'm pretty sure this has been asked before but which would you reccomend please ?
It's for a full plate, not for me, it's for SiL. He's always had bad teeth, had several missing and has now given up and had them all out.

Dh always recommended Wernets powder!

If dentures are well fitted you shouldn’t really need a fixative.

My mother always used Dr Wernet's powder, and my father Fixadent Plus. Both did a good job.

I presume you just mix with water ?

Fixadent is good but only use a little.

When I had my new ones the dentist recommended a little Fixodent for security. I've used it since.

nina, I think they have to be applied to a dry denture then pressed into place.
Wernets is a powder to sprinkle, others are a gel in a tube or sticky strips.

Fixadent is very good.

I don’t have to use fixatives , I kept getting mine adjusted till the dentist was satisfied with the fit
