Living a full life with dentures is easy, once you have adapted to them and have made sure they fit securely and comfortably. It might take some time at first, but to help you out during this new phase of your life, Fixodent® denture adhesive cream has some helpful tips on how to make the most of its strong hold:
How to apply the right amount of denture adhesive
You might need to try a few times to get the right amount for you. First, make sure to dry your dentures. Apply three or four dabs of denture cream on the upper part of the denture that fits against the roof of your mouth, and also on your lower denture. Push your denture gently into place and hold for a few seconds. If you notice adhesive oozing out of the denture then you know you used too much. Try a little less next time and avoid applying too close to the edge.
Apply denture adhesive when you need it
Denture adhesive can be applied at any time during the day. Some denture adhesives are available in a convenient travel size, so you can take it with you and use it whenever you need to.
How often should denture adhesive be removed?
Before going to bed, always remember to remove your dentures, clean them thoroughly, and place them in a container filled with water or a commercial denture cleanser.
Now that you have learned how to put your dentures in place, the strong hold of Fixodent® will do the rest, allowing you to live life to the fullest.
