Fact 6:
Denture adhesives can play a role in your denture's fit and comfort.

Dentures are made to fit precisely and usually do not require regular use of an adhesive for comfort. That said, even people with properly fitting dentures may find an adhesive product provides extra security and peace of mind, especially for important occasions. And many people assert that adhesives increase the performance of even the best-fitting dentures. However, if your dentures begin to feel loose or cause pronounced discomfort, see your dental professional immediately.
Some patients have extensive bone loss (ridge shrinkage) and consider themselves "dental cripples." These patients may need to use adhesives daily with their dentures. Denture hygiene plays an extremely important role in preventing problems in this situation.
