Works, but the Taste can make people sick
on March 25, 2011
It even states on the instructions, if you are sensitive to chemicals, you might not want to use it. Well I'm not all that sensitive, but it made me slightly sick, while it was curing in my mouth. Better off to go to a dentist and pay the bucks to have it done right. I don't have any money, so I had to use this product.
I have some knowledge as to how this stuff works and how quickly it sets, so the mixing part was easy for me. I poured the liquid into the powder and immediately mixed the two. I Kept Mixing until I was ready to put it into the denture. Constant mixing helps to ensure the powder dissolves into the curing agent. I mixed for about 2 minutes until the mix was thicker than "honey".
I used a piece of kitchen plastic wrap to cover the denture after putting the mix in it. That isolates the mix from touching your mouth. The plastic (saran wrap) is thin enough to conform well to your mouth and you get a lot less bad taste from the mix. I did the 3 minutes in my mouth and then took out the denture and peeled off the plastic wrap, which did not stick to the mix. I rinsed the denture in cold water for a few seconds, flushed out my mouth and put the denture back in for 5 minutes. I rinsed it again and put it up for a half hour.
I used an exacto knife to trim off the excess. I did not do that until the denture had set for 30 minutes. I just ran the exacto knife around the edge of the denture and then just peeled off the excess material. I took a small piece of 800 grit sandpaper and just lightly touched the edges to smooth them and the deed is done. It fits better in my mouth than before, but I don't notice it any softer. The pressure points are still raw, but they may get better with time.
Overall I would say it works as advertised, but beware of the terrible taste and the fact that it may make a sensitive person sick.
