If Healthy Smiles Dental Care PC as recently fit you for a partial or a custom pair of dentures, they were designed to fit securely in your mouth. Even with this tight, custom fit, you might want to try using denture adhesive as it has multiple benefits.
Beyond simply providing you with an extra secure fit, denture adhesive can also help to block out food particles from working their way between the base of your partial or dentures and your gums. If a few stray food particles do happen work their way in, they can potentially irritate your gums.
In a situation like this, you should remove your dentures and thoroughly rinse them to remove the food particles as well as old residual denture adhesive. Then you can dry them with a paper towel to give you a smooth clean surface to reapply new fresh denture adhesive.
When shopping for denture adhesive, you should always look for the American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance. This seal represents that the product has been rigorously tested and researched to prove its safety and effectiveness.
If you’ve recently been fitted for a set of dentures you have questions about the best way to secure them in place and maintain them, you can always call Healthy Smiles Dental Care PC at 860-623-2601 to set up a consultation session.
