They can help you get back to your favourite foods
Once you’re used to eating with your new dentures, you’ll be ready to re-introduce some of your favourite foods again. Denture adhesive helps form a seal to help prevent food particles getting stuck between your dentures and can help increase bite force* to help with tougher foods.
They can help you find your voice
When your dentures are fitted, you may find some words difficult to pronounce at first. Using denture adhesive can ease your concerns by locking your dentures in place more firmly, keeping you feeling confident in social situations or when getting close with loved ones.
GETTING USED TO THE FIT
An adhesive may help you to adapt to your new dentures and give you more confidence from the outset, easing any worries you may have of it falling out. It creates an additional grip between your gums and dentures to offer extra comfort and stability in every bite and smile.
It’s worth bearing in mind, though, that an adhesive shouldn’t be used as a substitute for a well-fitting denture. Over time, dentures can become loose, and may need repairing or replacing so you might want to speak with your dentist if it’s not fitting as comfortably as it had at first.
