HOW TO APPLY DENTURE ADHESIVE

SIMPLE STEPS FOR APPLYING DENTURE ADHESIVE

Denture adhesives help ensure a comfortable fit by sealing out food particles and holding dentures in place. It’s important to apply denture adhesives properly to prevent taste issues or oozing. Follow the steps below and make sure to read the complete directions on the product label to learn how to apply dental adhesive—from creams, to powders, to strips.

How to Apply Denture Adhesive

Denture Adhesive Cream 

Clean and dry your dentures.

Apply adhesive in short strips, not too close to the denture edges.

Rinse mouth before inserting dentures.

Press dentures into place, hold firmly, and bite down for a few seconds to secure hold.

Denture Adhesive Powder

Clean dentures thoroughly and leave wet.

Spray powder very lightly and evenly onto denture surfaces coming into contact with gums or roof of mouth.

Rinse mouth before inserting dentures.

Thoroughly shake off any excess powder. 

Press dentures into place, hold firmly, and bite down for a few seconds to secure hold.

Denture Adhesive Strips

Clean and dry your dentures.

With dry hands, peel open and remove strips.

Lightly moisten one strip at a time with water.

Place strips as shown, not too close to the denture edges. Do not overlap strips (tear strips as needed). 

Rinse mouth with water before inserting denture.

Press denture in place, hold firmly and bite down.

Super Poligrip® adhesives should help dentures hold for 12 hours. If you find your dentures loosening, talk to your dentist.
