Pros and Cons of Different Types of Denture Adhesives
The denture adhesive that’s right for you will be the one you feel most comfortable using and lets you enjoy life without worrying about your dentures. The best advice is to try different denture adhesives to see which works best for you.
Adhesive cream –Adhesive creams like Super Poligrip Cushion and Comfort offer a strong, all day hold and can provide comfort from the pressure and rubbing that dentures can cause.
Adhesive powders –Adhesive powders are just as strong as creams, but make it easier to sprinkle on just the right amount of powder.
Adhesive strips –Adhesive strips offer strong, all day hold but are easy to apply and mess-free.
What’s the Best Denture Adhesive for Me?
We’ve provided a short guide below to help you decide which denture adhesive might suit you best.
If you have sensitive gums…
A denture adhesive cream such as Super Poligrip Cushion & Comfort offers extra comfort. It has a hydro-active formula that provides a protective gel layer, which creates a cushioning layer that lasts all day long.
