While full dentures can be an affordable and effective way for our patients to restore their smile after significant tooth loss, they can still be problematic for some. Poor fit and function are reasons many of our patients choose to move forward with implant-supported dentures with dentists that provide them. However, not everyone can afford this solution for their smiles and need a way to work with their current dentures until they can.
When patients visit Dr. William F. Proffitt, Jr. at Proffitt Dentistry in Maryville, Tennessee, with issues regarding the fit and stability of their dentures, they may want to ask about the types of denture adhesives that can help from a dentist that provides quality, full dentures to new and returning patients.
If you do not have dental implants along the dental arch and find your dentures fit poorly with natural suction, it is time to turn to denture adhesives as an alternative. Denture adhesives are primarily designed to help the dentures stay in place along the gumline. Doing this can increase stability, create a proper seal to keep food particles from getting underneath the denture, and help you feel more confident when wearing dentures in social situations.
Learning how to care for your dentures and ensure they fit right is key to having success in speaking and eating properly. If you live in Maryville, Tennessee, and are interested in learning more about the benefits of denture adhesives, contact our practice today to discuss your options.
