What type of denture adhesive is best for you?

Denture adhesives can improve comfort and give you confidence that your dentures (also known as false teeth) are held firmly in place. There are many different kinds of denture adhesives and it all comes down to personal preference when you’re deciding which is best for you.

What is the best denture adhesive?

Denture adhesive is available in a cream, strips, powder or liners, and you may want to take some time to find out which type you’re most comfortable with. As well as making your denture feel secure, a denture adhesive can help protect your mouth by helping to seal out food particles.

Let’s take a closer look at some of the denture adhesive options:

Poligrip Product What do you need to know?
Poligrip Flavour Free This denture fixative cream provides all-day hold, and is free of artificial colours and flavours so the taste doesn't interfere with the flavours of your food. It also helps to seal out food particles, so you can be sure of a tighter, closer fit*.

Your comfort is important

It’s worth keeping in mind that your dentures should fit snugly, but many people may choose to use a denture adhesive for the extra peace of mind that their dentures are held securely to their gums. If your dentures fit comfortably in your mouth, you'll be able to confidently live your life to the full.

Denture adhesives are not meant to be used for loose fitting dentures. If you have a denture that doesn’t fit as well as it should, please visit your dentist.
