So, is denture adhesive paste (in a tube) permitted aboard flights now?? Is the (more difficult to use and hard to find and buy) adhesive POWDER permitted?
My guess is that they're going to say no. Since it's a gel or paste, they'll probably decline, even if it has a medical benefit. They allow some liquids on board--4 oz of a nonprescription medicine, contact lens fluid, etc., but the ban on gels and pastes seems to include everything. You might want to get your dentist to write some kind of a note explaining that you must have an adhesive paste with you.
