A complete denture is sometimes needed to help restore the essential function of a mouth that has lost or suffers from severely compromised teeth. Some patients need a denture to replace one set of teeth, while others need both sets of teeth replicated.
The complete denture will be produced in a state of the art dental lab to match the natural curvature and structure of your existing gum tissues. Each artificial tooth is founded into a pink material that looks very similar to natural gums.
While the denture will naturally fit firmly in place many denture wearers also like to use a little denture adhesive. Applying a small amount to the base when you install the unit each morning can help lock it in place while also helping reduce your chances of stray food particles infiltrating the area.
Any time you take the denture out you should thoroughly rinse it to remove any residual denture adhesive. After drying it with a clean paper towel you should then reapply fresh denture adhesive.
When shopping for denture adhesive it’s best to look for the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance on the packaging. The ADA’s logo indicated that the product has been researched and tested to meet their high standards for safety and effectiveness.
