Benefits of Using a Denture Adhesive

Many things change as we age, causing us to modify our activities or adjust our routines. But wearing dentures doesn't have to be one of them. Like other dental health products, denture cream has come a long way in the past 50 years. It now offers a safe, effective and affordable way to keep our dentures secure. If you've been wondering whether or not denture cream is for you, check out these reasons you might want to give it a try.

Confidence

Nothing can shatter our confidence quicker than slipping dentures during dinner with friends or colleagues. Use the right denture adhesive to help keep your dentures securely in place and provide you with the all-day confidence to enjoy life.

Functionality

We all have to eat, and let's face it - having to pick and choose what we eat due to our denture performance gets old fast. Using a good denture adhesive allows you to enjoy the foods you love without having to eat by yourself. Apples, raw carrots and even corn on the cob can once again be part of your dinner plans.

Comfort

Nothing is as irritating as an itch we can't scratch - unless it's that tiny bit of food that has worked its way under our dentures! You can always excuse yourself from the table and go to the restroom to rinse it out, but using a small dab of denture adhesive makes a lot more sense.

Dental Health

Healthy gums are just as important to our overall dental well-being as healthy teeth. Dentures that slip or allow food to work its way underneath can cause irritation and even abrasions on the gums. Denture cream can help you avoid these annoyances and keep your gums healthy and feeling great.

Dry Mouth

If you have a medical condition or are taking medications that cause dry mouth, you already know it can reduce denture adherence. Denture cream is a good way to overcome the inconvenient side effects of dry mouth. Just a tiny bit once a day lets you spend your time on more important things than loose dentures.

Laughing, Singing

Any activity that requires animated use of your facial muscles - like laughing or singing - can wreak havoc on denture wearers. Denture adhesive can help keep your dentures secure so you're free to laugh and sing to your heart's content. 

Professional Care

It's important to note that denture adhesives are not a substitute for regular professional dental care. Denture adhesives should not be used to remedy ill fitting or damaged dentures.
