Types of Denture Adhesive to Consider

Posted on 5/30/2019 by Sundeep Rawal, DDS
Types of Denture Adhesive to ConsiderWhen you wear dentures, you are going to have to use an adhesive now and again, if not daily. It all depends on the type of dentures you have, and how well they stay suctioned into your mouth.

If you have only ever used suction to keep your dentures in your mouth, then you may never have used denture adhesives before. There are times where one type may be a bit more appropriate than another. Here are the most common types of denture adhesive, and when you should use them.

Denture Creams

Creams are the most popular type of denture adhesive. They are easy to dispense and clean off at the end of the day. Their seal keeps out most food particles, and they are strong enough to hold for 12 hours per day. Creams tend to seal very well and leave you feeling confident that your dentures are not going to slip around when you use it.

Denture Powders

Denture powders are very similar to creams, but they are a different texture. Some people find the powders to be a little gritty. They are also slightly more difficult to figure out the right amount without oozing than creams, but they also hold for approximately 12 hours each day.

Denture Strips

For those with sore gums, or who need a quick way to hold their dentures for a regular day, adhesive strips may be the best option. They offer cushioning and help protect your gums from rubbing. However, food often gets caught around them, which can make them uncomfortable and harder to clean at the end of the day.

If you are not sure which is best for you, then come in and see us. We can look at your dentures and their fit, and suggest what we think would be your best option.
