Every custom-fitted denture provided by your dentist, Dr. [dcotor_name], is designed to fit securely into the unique shape of your gums and mouth structure. At the same time, it’s quite common for people with dentures or to apply a little denture adhesive for a more secure fit or to keep food particles away.

If you happen to have a few stray food particles work their way between the base of your dentures and your gums, it can cause irritation. When this happens, you should remove your dentures and thoroughly rinse the food particles and any remaining denture adhesive. You should then dry the base of the dentures with a clean paper towel. This will give you with a smooth, clean surface to reapply the new denture adhesive.

Before purchasing a particular brand of denture adhesive, you should look for the American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance. This seal explains that the product has undergone rigorous testing and research to prove its safety and effectiveness.
