Several available: if you have to use any adhesive means dentures not fitting right see your dentist ASAP. Good luck

Denture Adhesives: There are so many available and a very thin layer between the denture and the gingiva will help stabilize the prosthesis. Ill fitting dentures will never be comfortable or stable no matter how much adhesive you place. See your dentist for a consult.

Do you know which kind of denture adhesive is best for chewing food?

Denture adhesives: The two i recommend the most are fixodent and poligrip. Different patients differ on what they like the best. Rather than relying on denture adhesives for better stability and holding power, see a dentist to determine other possibilities first, such as a new denture, relining your existing denture, or implant supported attachments. Consider a non-removal implant prosthesis.
