We frequently receive the question, “Will DenSureFit entirely replace the need for denture adhesive on my lower dentures?” The answer to this question is contingent on the shape of your lower denture and gum line. We aim to provide you with reasonable expectations and inform you of the advantages and constraints of using DenSureFit on your lower denture.
DenSureFit on Upper Dentures
DenSureFit is highly effective in eliminating the requirement for denture adhesive on upper dentures due to the suction it generates in the palate on the roof of your mouth. However, your lower jaw does not possess the same type of suction spot to secure a lower denture in place.
Suffer from a Floating Denture?
Some denture wearers suffer from a floating denture that moves or lifts away from the gums when eating, speaking, or during other oral activities. This can occur when the denture has shallow walls and does not fit correctly due to bone loss, gum recession, or other changes in the jawbone over time. While DenSureFit cannot entirely solve this problem, it can provide a snug and comfortable cushion that will reduce the adhesive necessary to securely hold a floating denture.
DenSureFit on Lower Dentures
DenSureFit can generate some suction with your gums if your denture has a snug fit. However, this may not be sufficient to stabilize the lower denture while eating and speaking. You may still need a small amount of denture adhesive in such cases.
Denture adhesives come in various forms, including powders, creams, and strips. They work by creating a thin layer between the denture and the gums, which helps improve the denture’s grip.
Should I use Powder or Paste Denture Adhesive?
We advise using powder denture adhesive instead of paste for those requiring adhesive on their lower denture. Powder adhesive works well with DenSureFit silicone, is easier to remove, and is most effective when thinly applied to well-fitting dentures. It is also the most cost-effective denture adhesive option.
