How Does Your Denture Cream Work?


Posted on 8/10/2019 by Dr. Frank Sallustio
How Does Your Denture Cream Work?Denture cream is a water-soluble substance that you put between your denture and gums. Doing so will help hold your dentures in place.

Understanding how Denture Cream Works

Your dentures are meant to use the saliva in your mouth to adhere to your gums where they're held in place so they can both look and function like your normal teeth. Denture cream is known to do a great job of adhering to both your jaw and your denture to improve this retention.

Dentures are also meant to “cohere” to your tissues – using your saliva's film to help your denture not be pulled apart from your gums. The coherence you'll get from denture cream is much stronger than what you'll get from your own saliva.

Why use Denture Cream

Denture cream will maximize your satisfaction when wearing your dentures because they feel more stable in your mouth, so you feel more comfortable biting into food. They'll also feel more secure while in your mouth, so you won't have to worry about them slipping around.

Besides being concerned while you're eating food, you may also be concerned when speaking – especially if you give a lot of public speeches. Denture cream will give you more confidence in knowing that your teeth won't fall out of your mouth while you're speaking.

You'll also find that denture cream is especially useful for anyone who suffers from a chronically dry mouth. When you have this issue, your dentures are less likely to adhere to your mouth and thus they'll need some help in doing so.

When you Shouldn't use Denture Cream

You shouldn't use denture cream if your denture isn't fitting properly, you have an open cut or sore in your mouth, or you aren't maintaining good oral hygiene. When in doubt, make sure you give our office a call to schedule an appointment for us to look at your dentures. We can help you determine if your jawbone has changed and it's time for a new set.
