Hello there, fellow denture owner, my name is Dr Fixodent. Today I’m here to teach you the ins-and-outs of removing denture adhesive, because I’ve heard you find it hard to clear your gums completely.
Indeed, the adhesive residue left in your mouth can be a bit unpleasant, but that doesn’t mean you have to give up on the confidence and amazing feeling you get from a well-fixed set of dentures. That’s why it’s important to learn how to remove your denture adhesive and how to keep your gums clean after each use.
I’ll tell you how to remove that denture adhesive quickly and completely! To get rid of the sticky feeling on your gums after you remove your dentures, just gargle some warm water, then rinse and repeat a couple of times. Gargle for a minute each time to wash away any remaining residue. If the adhesive still won’t budge, brush your teeth and gums with toothpaste and hot water, just like you normally would.
Another way to remove denture adhesive is to gargle using mouthwash instead of water. Mouthwash loosens the adhesive, while also giving you fresh breath. See? It’s that easy!
With that out of the way, you and your denture can go out once again, enjoying the adventures of everyday life together.
The Importance of a Good Night’s Sleep
Another tip to improve your relationship with your dentures: while you can use Fixodent Denture Adhesives every day, for optimal gum health you have to let your gums rest for at least six hours after you’ve removed your dentures and cleaned your mouth of the adhesive. A good night’s sleep is the key to a healthy mind and a happy mood, so rest your gums too!
