Sticky problem of denture adhesives solved by London dentist
Although not all denture wearers need to use denture adhesive, and even some dentists would say that it is not necessarily needed, the reality is that denture adhesive has some very definite advantages and in some circumstances is essential.
For some who have very well fitting dentures, using adhesive might seem like an unnecessary complication, but even then it may provide an extra degree of comfort and security. For many denture wearers, especially newer users, there is a fear of being embarrassed if they were to dislodge or fall out. Using an adhesive can often provide that extra security that enables you to wear dentures with confidence.
There are other denture wearers who find it impossible to use them without adhesive and it is often simply the case that they are ill fitting and may need replacing. If you are experiencing concerns about the fit of your dentures it is a good idea to see a dentist. In fact, all denture wearers should be visiting a London dentist every six months for a check-up. A dentist will be able to tell if your dentures need realigning or rebasing as well as offering specific advice about denture adhesive.
There are several types of denture adhesives; the most common being strips or powders, and it really depends on personal preference for which type will work best for you. For the adhesive to work effectively it is crucial that the dentures are kept clean and special brushes can be purchased to clean them.
The reality is that most people will probably use denture adhesive to some degree but even if you never feel the need it is always important to visit a dentist every six months for a check-up.
