Denture Adhesive Facts



  • Which Super Poligrip® Denture Adhesive product is right for me – cream, strips or powders?

    There are a variety of denture adhesives to fit your individual needs including creams, strips and powders. Learn more about each product then pick your preference:

    Super Poligrip® Denture Adhesive Creams

    Super Poligrip® Comfort Seal® Denture Adhesive Strips

    Extra Strength Super Poligrip® Denture Adhesive Powder

  • How long does Super Poligrip® hold?

    Our zinc-free formulation provides an effective all-day hold for well-fitted dentures (up to 12 hours) — depending upon the individual, the fit of the denture, and the amount of saliva in the mouth and the foods and beverages that are consumed. Visit your dentist regularly. Ill-fitting dentures may impair your health.

  • Why do I sometimes experience oozing when using Super Poligrip®?

    When you experience oozing of denture adhesive cream from beneath dentures, it's a sign that you’re using too much. If oozing occurs, reduce the amount of denture adhesive that you are applying. Remember, zinc-free Super Poligrip® holds all day, so you should not need to apply Super Poligrip® more than once a day.

  • What should I know about zinc?

    At GlaxoSmithKline "(GSK)", consumer safety is our primary concern. As a precautionary measure, GSK voluntarily stopped the manufacture, distribution and advertising of all zinc-containing denture adhesives in February 2010. Our adhesives that contained zinc have always been safe and effective when used as directed. The vast majority of consumers did follow the instructions on the package. However, we know that some used excess product over the long term, and this is associated with potential health risks. This is the reason why we made the decision to introduce a zinc-free line of denture adhesives. Now, all denture adhesive creams manufactured by GSK no longer contain zinc and are labeled zinc-free.


    Our zinc-free products also:

    • Are clinically proven to seal out up to 74% more food particles* that cause irritation and pain compared with no adhesive.
    • Help prevent gum irritation.
    • Significantly improve comfort, confidence and satisfaction.
    • Significantly improve stability, retention and bite force.
    • If you have specific questions or concerns about your health you should see your doctor and/or dentist.
