- Should I use a denture adhesive?
: Denture adhesive can provide additional retention even for well-fitting dentures, especially for lower dentures. However, denture adhesives are not the solution for old, ill-fitting dentures. A poorly fitting denture, which causes constant irritation over a long period, may contribute to the development of bone loss and sores. These dentures may need a reline or need to be replaced. If your dentures begin to feel loose, or cause pronounced discomfort, consult with Dr. Clyde immediately.
