Check the instructions on the pack
DO NOT use more Fixodent denture adhesive cream than is shown in the diagram (not more than about 1.00 g and 8 cm for Dual Power and 1.25g or 10cm for Complete adhesives, equivalent to 6 strips of the dimension shown). If excess adhesive oozes off your denture in your mouth then you are using too much.
DO NOT use excess product for poorly fitting dentures. Consult your dentist to have them corrected.
DO NOT use Fixodent denture adhesive for fitting dentures more than once a day. With proper use, the tube should last a minimum of 4 weeks for the 40g size, 5 weeks for the 47g size, and at least 8 weeks for the 70g size.
DO NOT use more than directed. Fixodent contains zinc (except for 0% variant that has no added zinc), consult a doctor if using other products containing zinc. Consult your dentist regularly to ensure you have properly fitting dentures.
CAUTION: Keep out of the reach of children. Do not use in case of hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients.
How to remove
To remove your dentures
Before attempting to remove your dentures, first rinse your mouth with warm water or a mouthwash such as Oral-B.
- To remove your lower denture, pull gently while applying a rocking motion.
- Removing your upper denture may be more difficult due to the higher surface area creating a stronger denture fitting. Place your thumb against the front teeth and then press upward and outward in the direction of your nose.
- If these techniques do not release your dentures and you are uncomfortable leaving them in overnight, please seek assistance in a hospital emergency room or a 24-hour dental service.
