How much difference can using denture adhesives make to your comfort? A scientific study measured the way that patients with - and without - denture adhesive eat their foods and compared the results with those of a sample of patients with their own teeth.

MANDIBLE MOVEMENT OF PATIENTS WITH DENTURES WITHOUT ADHESIVE

The irregular movement and separation of the denture from the mandible during eating is clearly shown in the chart

  1. Lateral Movement - potential for discomfort and tissue trauma

  2. Slower Chewing Rate

  3. Vertical Movement can average over 6mm per bite during the chewing cycle.

The chewing pattern of a patient using one of Fixodent denture adhesive creams is virtually identical to the chewing pattern with natural teeth, with only slight movement and separation of the denture from the mandible.
