Which Holds Better, Denture Creams or Denture Pads?


Posted on 1/30/2018 by Dr. Frank Sallustio
Denture Frank W. Sallustio DDS, MS, FACP AZ 85375-4486If you are wearing a full or partial denture, you know how embarrassing it is if it falls right in the middle of your conversation. Using a denture adhesive can save you from these awkward moments by making sure that your dentures adhere to your gum line at all times.

There are several choices for a dental adhesive. Apart from their convenience, they can also be beneficial in many ways and choosing one depends on which fits your style and ease of use.

Dental Creams are Effective Adhesive

If you are looking for an easy to use adhesive, denture creams or what is known as denture glue is not only effective, but they are simple to use. All you need to do is apply a dab to your dentures to make sure they fully stick to your gums.

Creams create a strong bond and can be used regardless if you have a wet or dry denture. Be aware though that dental creams contain zinc, which is a naturally occurring nutrient and having enormous amounts in our body can have serious consequences. The only thing you have to watch out for when using dental creams is using too much which runs off the sides.

Dental Pads are More Expensive, But Does the Work Better

Sometimes called as an adhesive strip, denture pads are much more expensive than creams. The strips can be fitted to your dentures without oozing from the crevices.

The only inconvenience with pads is you have to cut them to fit the dentures, but this is not much of a problem considering that you only have to make sure they cover the whole denture area that need to adhere to your gums and palate.
