DenSureFit may be used on the lower denture plate.
What to EXPECT from DenSureFit on the LOWER
DenSureFit silicone does a wonderful job of filling voids that are causing your lower denture to fit too loosely.
DenSureFit silicone provides soft cushioning against the hard acrylic denture base. It can help and/or prevent gum soreness.
Provides better seal.
On a well-made denture, DenSureFit can also provide a nice seal around the edges and ridge of your denture to help keep food and liquids out.
NOTE about a FLOATING or POPPING UP LOWER
Since DenSureFit is not an adhesive, it likely will not hold your denture down on your lower gum line. This is the job of an adhesive.
DenSureFit will do a great job of filling your voids in your lower. But, since a lower simply rests on the gum line and doesn’t get suction, most have a tendency to float or pop up.
In this case, the extra security of a powder adhesive works well in conjunction with the DenSureFit liner to keep the denture secured to the lower gum line.
If your denture is shallow like this one, you can anticipate a soft cushioning effect from DenSureFit; however, it cannot solve other issues, such as preventing it from “floating”. Powder adhesive will be necessary on top of your DenSureFit liner.
If your denture has sides that are more substantial and extend down onto the gums like this denture, DenSureFit might provide an improved fit and soft cushioning. Powder adhesive may or may not be necessary on top of the DenSureFit liner.
