A common concern among new denture wearers is the worry that their teeth might slip in public. How to get used to dentures? According to a recent Fixodent survey, 61% of potential denture wearers said it would ease their worries if they were sure that their dentures would stay in place.
Fixodent denture adhesive can help to provide this reassurance, thanks to our range of adhesives for full or partial dentures, all of which are specially formulated for a firm and comfortable hold, so that you can enjoy total peace of mind whether you’re in a business meeting, dining with friends or relaxing at home. First-time denture wearers may find the following tips on how to get used to dentures useful.
Choosing and using Fixodent
- Which denture adhesive cream? We offer various formulations of Fixodent that have been developed with over 70 years of laboratory experience. All are easy to apply and each formula is slightly different to give you the balance of hold, longevity, taste and antibacterial qualities you require.
- How much to use? Applying Fixodent denture adhesive is a simple process – it takes a surprisingly small amount to ensure a snug fit and a firm hold. For upper dentures, apply three or four pea-sized dabs of adhesive to the top part of the denture that comes into contact with the roof of your mouth. For lower dentures, do the same around the inside area of your denture. Then push your dentures in place and bite down. If you’ve applied too much, excess cream will ooze out of the denture as you insert. This is completely harmless, and over time you will get used to applying the right amount to prevent this from occurring. Please check the pack for application instruction.
- Fixodent is always ready. The handy-sized tube means you can take any variety of Fixodent anywhere and apply it at any time. You can apply some in the middle of the day before meeting friends for lunch for renewed confidence.
