Living a full life with dentures is easy, once you have adapted to them and have made sure they fit securely and comfortably. It may take some time at first, but to help you out during this new phase of your life, Fixodent has some helpful tips on how to make the most of its denture adhesive creams:
- Apply the right amount of denture fixative: You may need to try a few times to get the right amount for you. First of all, make sure to dry your denture. Then, apply three or four dabs of denture fixative on the upper part of the denture that fits against the roof of your mouth, and also on your lower denture. Push your denture gently into place and hold for a few seconds. If you notice denture fixative oozing out of the denture then you know you used too much. Try a little less next time and avoid applying too close to the edge.
- Apply denture fixative when you need it. Denture adhesive can be applied at any time during the day – as soon as you wake up and are getting ready to put your dentures in, or in the middle of the day right before you go out to meet your friend for lunch. Some denture fixatives are available in a convenient travel size, so you can take it with you and use it whenever you need to.
Before kissing goodnight, always remember to remove your dentures, clean them thoroughly and place them in a container filled with water or a commercial denture cleanser.
Now that you have learned how to put your dentures in place, Fixodent’s strong hold will do the rest, allowing you to live life to the fullest.
