In a perfect world, your partial would stay in place with no added help until you remove it at night. However, reality is different. We’re constantly on the move, we’re talking, eating, and playing sports – and during all this, there are plenty of opportunities for our partials to come loose, or encounter other issues like food stuck between the partial and gums.

Also, as time goes by and your gums begin to change shape, your partial may naturally start to move around, making your gums more susceptible to food infiltration, as well as causing mouth sores and gum irritation in the long run. In addition, an ill-fitting partial can also cause you to feel uneasy in a social setting, making you constantly check yourself when smiling, eating and speaking. That’s why choosing the right denture cream for partials is so important.

The benefits of using the adhesive cream for partials

  • A great partial denture adhesive not only keeps your partials from moving around in your mouth by providing a strong hold, but it also creates a seal that keeps food particles out from between your partial and gums.

  • Thus, it it gives your mouth a fresh feeling by preventing food particles from getting stuck beneath your partials and acts as a comfortable cushion between your gum’s soft tissue and the hard surface of your partial denture.

  • Even if you feel that your partial denture fits perfectly, the extra sense of security that comes with using a denture adhesive is sure to give you a boost of confidence in everyday life, whether you’re laughing with your mouth wide open, playing football with your friends, or eating your favourite food at a restaurant.

Most people need just one daily application.

As a matter of course, a dentist should be consulted regularly to continue achieving a proper fit. Badly fitting partials may impair an individuals’ health.
