She explained she had already washed and rinsed her mouth and then popped the dentures in to "give the glue something to stick to."
In the next frame she applies the adhesive to the dentures.
She said: "It's a lot but I'm trying to cover every bit of the dentures that touch my gums.
"Now for the sake of the video, I'm getting a bunch of glue on my fingers but I will clean that up.
"I almost fill it and then I dump it over the trash."
She then turns the dentures over the bin to remove the excess powder and then inserts them in to her mouth.
As well as practical videos, Jessica offers support to others who are struggling with having dentures.
In another clip, she said: "This is not an easy journey and for those of us that it is easy for, just remember you're lucky!"
She plans to get her dentures implanted in the future but explained that she was apprehensive about the procedure.
Jessica said: "I'm still terrified to get these implanted.
"I want them implanted but I'm so scared that my body will reject them. I'm just terrified. I keep putting it off and putting it off."
Fellow TikTokers flocked to show support to Jessica.
One said: "You're going to do wonderful… just get healthy!"
While another said: "Proud of you."
