People wearing full dentures may occasionally use adhesives. Adhesives come in many forms – creams, powders, pads/wafers, strips or liquids. If you use one of these products, read the instructions and use them exactly as directed. Look for products with the ADA/CDA Seal of Acceptance. Products with the ADA/CDA Seal have been evaluated for safety and effectiveness.
Over time, adjusting the denture may be necessary. As you age, your mouth naturally changes, which can affect the fit of the denture. Your bone and gum ridges can recede or shrink, resulting in a poorly fitting denture. A reliable dentist at Bells Corners Family Dentistry adjusts dentures that do not fit a patient properly. Poorly fitted dentures can cause various problems, including sores or infections. Visit us if your denture becomes loose and maintain your regular visits too.
You can do serious harm to your denture and to your health by trying to adjust or repair your denture. In many cases, dentists can make necessary adjustments or repairs, often on the same day. Complicated repairs may require that the denture be sent to a special dental laboratory.
