Adhesive
by: Sharon B., RDH

Hi Jeanne,

Ideally you should never need to use denture adhesive. Denture adhesive is meant to only be used for ill-fitting dentures that do not seal properly or fit the mouth. Sometimes this is because our bone ridge deteriorates, a denture wasn't made to fit in the first place, or we just don't give ourselves time to adjust to the new denture. Also you don't want to risk irritating the implants with the adhesive under the denture. I would advise you to not use it.

Yes you can NEW

Hahaha what an absurd statement.

Yes you can use denture adhesive but it best to avoid as much as possible putting any near the implant insertion. Hopefully your prosthodondist put a soft liner on your partial/full to minimize the pressure on the implant area.
