Adhesive – Powders, Pastes, Wafers
1.Poligrip® - Powders, wafer strips and pastes: easy to apply, not easy to clean
2.Fixodent® – Powders and pastes: easy to apply, not easy to clean
3.Sea-Bond® – Wafer: good product for very shrunken and sensitive gums because it provides a layer between the denture and your gums. Needs to be replaced every day and is easy to clean as it just peels out. Not for people with poor dexterity because you need to cut the wafer to the shape of your denture.
***Note: If you need to use an adhesive, talk to your denturist.***
In many cases, the use of adhesives is not necessary with proper denture maintenance, which includes routine denture relines. Also, the placement of dental implants will completely alleviate the need for adhesives. Give us a call today for more information.
