Denture Adhesive Can Help Secure Your Partial Denture

Posted on March 8, 2018 by wlda

A [dr_type] like Dr. [doctor_name] will often provide patients with a partial denture to replicate the physical presence and essential function of their multiple missing teeth. Depending on the size and location the removable partial denture might also include special hardware components to help marry them with the neighboring teeth.

The base of the partial denture includes a pink medium that closely mimics the appearance of your natural gum tissues. It was designed to fit firmly of its own accord.

However, many patients with a partial denture also like to apply a small amount of denture adhesive when they install it in the morning. Adding a thin bead to the base of the dental appliance before inserting onto your gums can help bond it firmly in place while also helping to block out prevent stray food particles.

If you need to take your partial denture for some reason, you should thoroughly rinse away all traces of residual denture adhesive. After drying the base with a clean paper towel you can apply a fresh denture adhesive before reinstalling it. Â

Before going to bed each evening you should give your partial denture a thorough rinse to clear away residual denture adhesive. Then you should gently brush it with a soft-bristled toothbrush and denture polish.

If you were provided with a partial denture at Dr. [doctor_name]’s [city], [state], clinic and you have a question about denture adhesive, you can always call [phone] to speak to a [practice_name staff member.
