People often times get into situations where they end up losing their teeth for one reason or another, and dentures are one option to fix those situations. For some it is trauma, while for others it might be something to do with their oral hygiene.
In cases where people lose their teeth for one reason or the other, they end up in our prosthodontic office with a recommendation of getting some dentures. The dentures not only hide the missing teeth, but they also help the individual feel confident again since he or she can smile without exposing a huge gap on their gums. To help these dentures to fit well and also be as comfortable as possible, we can get denture adhesives to make sure that everything is alright.
These types of adhesives come in different forms and composition. You can have them come in pads, powders, and even pastes. Although these adhesives are all made to do the same thing, they all do it differently. The objective here is to keep the denture as secure as possible, so much so that even if you were to fall, it would still stay in your mouth. However, regardless of the types, they should all be handled with care and have special attention being paid to the directions for the product.
In the end, we see that not all these denture adhesives are the same. However, if you work with them and follow the instructions, you should not have any problems with your denture staying properly in place. When you have the right denture adhesive, you can feel safe that your denture is more secure. Plus, you can get more life out of your dentures with fewer issues like slipping or drops. If you want our recommendation on which denture adhesive to use, call us and make an appointment.
