When dentures are fitted by Drs. Baaqee and Baaqee, they are designed to fit tightly in place. However, many people with removable dental appliances like to apply a little denture adhesive for the extra hold it provides and the ability to block out stray food material.
If particles work their way into the base of the partial or dentures, it can loosen the fit and irritate your gums. It’s best to rinse the unit clean. Then you can dry it with a paper towel before applying a fresh bead of adhesive.
When you take your partial out at night, you should also rinse away any residual adhesive before brushing your partial and soaking it overnight. This will provide you with clean surface so you can reapply fresh denture adhesive the next morning.
Before purchasing a particular brand of denture adhesive, you should look for the American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance. This seal means that the ADA has subjected the product to significant research and testing to make sure it meets rigorous guidelines for consumer use.
