Set of Dentures in Glass of Water

If your denture is loose and bothersome, you could try some denture adhesive to help cushion it and hold it in place. But when you go to the dental aisle of your local pharmacy, it’s hard not to get overwhelmed with all of the different options.

Types of Denture Adhesive

While all types of denture adhesive may work for your needs, there may be a certain kind that you prefer. Here is a list of some popular choices:

  • Powder: If your dentures are slightly loose, then denture powder might be your solution. This product is great because it’s quick, mess-free, and forms a thin layer of adhesive.
  • Cream: If your appliance is loose to the point where it’s bothersome, then you should try a denture cream instead. It forms a cushion over your gums while soothing sore places. Denture cream is also a good choice for achieving a better suction. It does this by filling in the voids that may be between your denture and gums.
  • Strips: Strips are filled with adhesive, helping them stick very well and be mess-free. Probably the best part about denture strips is that they’re convenient when you’re away from home. To avoid any embarrassing slips of your denture, you can always be prepared by keeping a few strips in your desk, purse or wallet.

When Adhesive Doesn’t Work

In some cases, there’s no amount of adhesive that can keep a denture to stay in place. If you’re having trouble keeping your appliance secure, then come to Georgia Denture & Implant Specialists. There are a number of things that we can do to help hold your denture in place for a more secure and comfortable fit.

Dr Berne and his team are the best; professional, friendly, knowledgeable and caring. They made an uneasy process for me go very smooth. I’m so happy with my beautiful smile that his skilled hands gave me, and would recommend him to anyone looking to restore their smile too!!!

The whole staff was so nice and treated me like family. Dr Anderson and his assistant were both so funny and I felt so comfortable and like I’d known them for years. Dr Anderson and his staff are the best ever! I would highly recommend them!
Marian K.
The office is very friendly and very professional. My dentist is Dr. Doug Yoon and on my very first visit he introduced me to the entire staff that would be assisting with my care, which made me feel confident that I had chosen the right practice. It has only gone uphill from there. I love that place!!
