If you’ve had a set of dentures fitted at Vincent J. Giaimo, D.D.S., L.L.C., they were designed to fit snugly with the underlying structure of your gums. At the same time, many people with removable dentures also appreciate the use of denture adhesive. Not only will this create an extra-strong bond between your gums and dentures, but it will also help prevent any stray food particles from infiltrating the area.
Be sure to only use a brand of denture adhesive that has earned the American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance. This insignia represents that the ADA has subjected the product to rigorous testing and research to prove its safety and effectiveness. When you use this product, you will know that it is the best product for your mouth, gums and appliance.
When you use denture adhesive, make sure to rinse it off at night. This will keep the appliance in tip-top shape. As you rinse, use warm water and denture cleaner. Do your best to dry the dentures afterward. In the morning, feel free to apply another line of adhesive.
