Poligrip® Strong Hold
My dental professional
recommended Poligrip, so
naturally I took his advice
A confident life with dentures
Constant use combined with natural changes to the shape of your mouth may cause your denture to fit less well, which can mean you’re not getting the most out of them.
A loose fit can also lead to more serious problems if you ignore it, so have your dental professional check your dentures at least once a year to make any adjustments that might be required.
When dentures fit properly they provide support to your jaw but if a denture loses its proper fit, your face shape may change slightly and this may cause wrinkles to appear.
See your dental professional immediately if you experience any of the following:
• Pain or discomfort with your dentures
• Dentures making clicking noises
• Trouble eating with your dentures
• Trouble speaking with your dentures
You should also consult a dental professional if your dentures look worn or are more than three years old. Your dental professional can then tell you whether you need new dentures or not.
Take care of your oral health
Keeping your dentures clean and in great shape is a really important part of your day.
Unlike toothpaste, Polident® is specially designed just for dentures, giving you a fresh, thorough clean without leaving scratches for bacteria to hide and grow in. Choose the denture cleanser that’s right for you.

Food for thought
It is common for people to change their diet as a result of adapting to wearing dentures, due to problems they may experience with their teeth and to feeling less confident eating certain foods.
Poligrip® can help give you confidence when eating by providing the extra hold your dentures need. Food particles can also get trapped between your dentures and your mouth, causing irritation and making your dentures uncomfortable. Poligrip® creates a seal that helps keep food particles out.
The problem with brushing
Did you know that dentures are about 10x softer than natural teeth? Using a traditional toothbrush and toothpaste can scratch the surface of dentures. These micro-scratches create the perfect environment for bacteria and other microorganisms to attach and grow. Unlike toothpaste, Polident® is not abrasive and kills 99.9% of odour-causing bacteria and other microorganisms, helping to keep your dentures clean and helping you to maintain a healthy mouth.
