Soft-Reline vs Denture Cream, An In-Depth Comparison
If you have loose dentures, you’ve probably tried every type of denture cream and adhesive on the market. Unfortunately, what you’ve probably discovered is that denture creams don’t solve your problem. They can make wearing dentures unpleasant because of the taste of the denture cream in your mouth and the way it can squish out, get on your palate, and even drip down your throat. Adhesives can cause discomfort and worry that your dentures will slip while you are talking, eating, or interacting with others. Forget about drinking your morning coffee when you have denture cream in because it will melt.
But now there’s a better way to fix loose dentures, and it works without any of the yucky side effects you get with denture cream. It works so well, you may even forget you’re wearing dentures. No more bad taste, or spending time applying denture cream multiple times a day, and then having to clean it off your denture at night.
But, before we talk about the solution for loose dentures, you need to know what causes loose dentures in the first place.
Why Your dentures Don’t Fit as Well as They Should
A lot of things happen inside your mouth when you have your teeth extracted. These are normal changes and shouldn’t be a cause for concern.
In most cases, ridge resorption is the culprit for loose dentures. This is a natural process that starts from the day you get your teeth pulled out. Ridge resorption means that the bone that used to hold the teeth in place is starting to shrink. As the swelling goes down after extraction, your gum line changes. Ridge resorption over time can also affect your gum line and the shape of your palate, creating gaps between it and your dentures.
As the soft tissues of your mouth change shape over time, your hard acrylic denture does not. This is the main cause of looseness or ill-fitting dentures.
The Best Solution: A Soft Reline
When dentures aren’t fitting right, the best solution is to get a soft reline that provides a soft cushion between your hard acrylic denture, and the soft tissues of your mouth. A soft reline is made of silicone that forms to the shape of your mouth providing a custom fit between it and your dentures.
Unfortunately, before now, the only way to get a soft reline was to go to your dentist and have them make one for you for a cost of $250-400 each. This can add up fast if you’ve recently had extractions and your mouth is healing and changing shape quickly. Sometimes your dentures will get loose every couple of weeks, and who has the money to go to the dentist that often?
That’s why we developed DenSureFit — the first and only over-the-counter soft reline kit you can use at home. It was invented by a dentist and uses the same high-quality silicone dentists use in their office for professional soft relines.
Now you can adjust the fit of your dentures as often as you need with a low-cost alternative to a dentist visit. And because the soft reline is so comfortable and protects your soft tissues, you may even forget you’re wearing dentures.
How Denture Creams work versus how Soft-Relines work
Denture Creams (also called adhesives) work as a glue for your dentures. You apply them to your denture and then the denture sticks to your gums. This can be painful to have the soft tissue of your gums glued to a hard acrylic denture that is ill-fitting. This is why it’s difficult for people to eat and bite down on hard foods when they are using denture cream to hold their dentures in.
Also, denture creams can squish and dentures can move while chewing. Denture cream can get mixed in with the taste of your food, ruining your meal. They can also gap and let in food particles that cause discomfort which means you have to get up from your meal, remove your dentures, clean them, and reapply denture cream and refit your dentures to finish your meal.
Soft-Relines are a completely different solution. Because they are made of silicone, they fill all the gaps between your gums and dentures, they provide an air-tight seal to your gum line. They stay in place because of the natural suction formed by the roof of your mouth when a denture is properly fitted and seated. People who use DenSureFit can eat and drink whatever they want without having any of the problems denture cream users have. They can even drink hot coffee and tea, and eat tough foods like steak, tacos, candy, and all the other foods they enjoy.
