Denture Adhesives ? A Review

Dr. Hemamalini Balaji [3] | Dr. Dhanraj [12]

Abstract: Denture adhesives are used to improve the retention and stability of dentures in a large number of patients without any advice from dentists. In the United States, denture adhesives are used by more than 5 million denture wearers. Denture wearers mainly use denture adhesive to compensate for ill fitting dentures as well as to alleviate discomfort. It seems reasonable for denture wearers to use denture adhesives to enhance denture retention and stability. However, dental professionals are still undecided as to whether dentists should advise denture wearers to use them. Hence the aim of this review is to throw light on the literature evidence of effectiveness of denture adhesive by complete denture wearers
