If you're among the millions who wear dentures, you know the importance of maintaining good oral hygiene. While daily cleaning routines are essential, there's a specific step that often gets overlooked but holds significant importance – reapplying adhesive after each meal. Today we are going to discuss the removal and reapplication of denture adhesive after each meal and why it is important.
1. Food Particles and Bacteria Buildup:
The palate of your mouth can be a tricky area to clean thoroughly, especially when wearing dentures. After each meal, food particles can find their way into the nooks and crannies, creating a breeding ground for bacteria. This hidden residue can lead to unpleasant odors and, more critically, oral infections. By removing adhesive and cleaning the dentures after every meal, you eliminate a bacterial breeding ground.
2. Soothing Sensitive Gums:
Ever experienced discomfort or irritation in your gums? It's a common issue for denture wearers, often caused by food particles getting lodged between the denture and your gums. This irritation can lead to inflammation and soreness. Reapplying adhesive after each meal ensures a snug fit, prevents food from sneaking in, and prevents causing discomfort. If you have sore spots, sensitive gums, or dry mouth consider trying Dr. B Dental Solutions Cleanadent Paste to soothe your mouth and your gums.
3. All-Day Confidence with Strong Hold:
Denture adhesives are designed to provide stability and comfort, but their effectiveness diminishes over time. There is a worry among some individuals regarding frequent use of denture adhesive, mainly due to the presence of zinc in typical denture adhesive formulations. Adhesadent Denture Adhesive is one of the first zinc-free, natural denture adhesives making it safe to reapply after each meal. Reapplying adhesive after each meal ensures a secure fit, preventing slippage and discomfort throughout the day and safeguards against potential gum irritation. This simple step ensures a strong and secure hold throughout the day, allowing you to eat, talk, and smile with confidence. No more worrying about the stability of your dentures – just a reliable hold that lasts.
