Hi @Yevvo80, I can't help with with personal experiences, but we have a page about dentures which was written by one of our forum moderators who has personal experience of full dentures. There might be some useful tips in there as well as links to further information:

I have used Fixodent Extra, it is crap. Stick with the regular stuff, it's just as good and cheaper. From your description I suspect your bottom denture doesn't fit as well as it could, because if it did then Fixodent would keep it in all day for you. Get the fit checked. My previous bottom denture often came loose after lunch but before dinner - my new one doesn't.
