The Truth about Supermarket Dental Adhesives

Smile now, pay later with Afterpay

Dentures work perfectly as teeth replacements. They are especially convenient because you can remove them and put them back in as you like and they are tailor-made for each patient. Dentures, in replacing missing teeth help your smile, appearance, and confidence. What’s more, they prevent the facial muscles from sagging and protect the mouth from excessive bone loss.

A denture adhesive helps to improve the fit of partial or full dentures. However, it is not a must-have for everyone. Nonetheless, dental adhesives give you a sense of added security. They improve the comfort of your dentures, helping you enjoy their maximum benefits.

In the market, denture adhesives are found in different forms. You can find adhesives in the form of pads, powder, gel, and paste. A case can be made for each of the types, but that is hardly the primary concern for many people who are looking for the adhesives. Many people want to know what the right choice of glue for them is, and whether they can get it in the supermarket. They want to be sure that the very thing they are paying to improve their wellbeing will not injure it.

Are supermarket brands safe for use?

Denture adhesives form a layer between the gums and the dentures reducing denture slipping. They give patients improved satisfaction with their implants for dentures. Since they enhance stability, you can have a sharp bite. You also get to enjoy more endurance and security. Notably, people who do sing or perform public speaking engagements appreciate the protection of adhesives.

That said, one of the most significant concerns with dental glue is zinc poisoning. While zinc is naturally found in our bodies, too much of the nutrient can upset the system and cause serious problems. When buying supermarket brands to fix implants for dentures, ideally, one should be careful not to pick products based off of zinc.

That aside, an ideal adhesive should be able to seal in the dentures to prevent food from getting under them. It should help to relieve bad breath and gum irritation. Wearers should be comfortable chewing tough food like steak and should be more confident with their implants.

How a dental technician can help

Many people who opt to buy dental adhesives from the supermarket rely on the label information- as they should. How do you know that all the information is trustworthy? Assuming that it is, do you have the expertise to translate what a particular ingredient may do to your safety?

The argument goes that one could try several options until they find one that works. That is all good. However, do you have the time to cycle through all the options in the market? What about the financial muscle? Are you willing to gamble your health in the quest to find the perfect dental adhesive when there is a better way?

A dental technician can help you make the right pick for a dental adhesive. They have worked in the market and are well versed with individual brands. They also factor in your individual needs, putting them in a better position to know what is best for you. They will consider factors such as the bond strength, the value, ease of use and the comfort of their recommendation for an adhesive for your dentures. You can only win with professional help.

From my first phone call to Tomika explaining my situation with my teeth and how bad they were and that I didn't know where to start, to having my first free appointment with Elias was the best thing I have ever done. Tomika is very easy to talk to, friendly and professional. Elias, well he is great, told me exactly what he could achieve, the cost and the timeframe and he was spot on. Read more

Elias prepared a full set of dentures for my 90 year old mother. The service he provided was exceptional, using current technology effectively to create a set of dentures which were far superior to what she had previously had. Elias also made it very clear that my mother could go back at any time if minor adjustments were required. He gives meticulous attention to detail. Tamika ensures that appointments run to time.

State of the art technology and skills and ability to match. I went to the clinic highly anxious ( my previous dental encounter at another clinic resulted in a panic attack and blacking out twice whilst in the chair) due to the poor integrity of my teeth, as a direct result of a health condition I had lost the majority of my teeth and the remaining were nothing short of a train wreck. Elias treated me the utmost respect and kindness. Read more

Faqs

A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth. At Aesthetic Dental and Denture Clinic, we offer two types of denture, complete and partial. Complete dentures are necessary when all your natural teeth are missing. A partial denture is used when some natural teeth remain. If you are having extractions, we can also provide you with an immediate denture. This is often an interim denture so you can avoid the embarrassment of being without teeth.

A denture usually lasts between five and seven years. Time and natural changes in the mouth will affect the fit and wear patterns of your denture. If your denture is worn and doesn’t fit as well as it used to, it may require a repair or reline. Having your denture checked every two years will help to ensure a proper fit and by following your denture care instructions, you’ll extend the life of your replacement teeth. 

Dentures don’t last forever. Dentures usually last between 5 to 7 years and need to be relined every 1 to 2 years. Over time dentures become worn and don’t fit as well, so it’s important to reline them regularly. The better you follow your denture care instructions, the longer your replacement teeth will last. 

It is advised that you visit your dentist every 6 months for a check-up and clean. This will help to prevent any major oral health issues from occurring. However, if you have bad breath, bleeding gums, discoloured teeth, cracked or chipped teeth, tooth or jaw pain it is advised to make an appointment with your dentist as soon as possible.

At Aesthetic Dental and Denture Clinic, we know attending the dentist can be difficult for nervous and anxious patients. We offer a number of options to help make your next visit as calm and stress-free as possible. Contact us today and a friendly dental technician will be able to give you all the options available.
