How to Keep Fake Teeth In

If you are concerned about your dentures coming loose, particularly while you are eating or speaking in public, try using a denture adhesive. Denture adhesives hold your teeth securely in place and can give you peace of mind. Denture adhesives are sometimes called denture adherents. They are available over the counter at grocery and chemists. They come in the form of creams, powders or strips that are applied to clean dentures before they are placed in the mouth.

Skill level:Moderately Easy

Things you need

Denture cleaning brushDenture cleanserDenture adhesive productSoft flannel or towel

Instructions

1 Rinse your dentures to remove any loose food particles.

2 Apply a small amount of denture cleanser to a moist denture cleaning brush or soft-bristled toothbrush.

3 Gently scrub every surface of your dentures with the brush to remove food particles and plaque.

4 Dry your dentures thoroughly using a piece of soft flannel or a hand towel. (Leave the dentures wet if using adhesive powder that requires moisture.)

5 Apply three or four dabs of denture cream, each one about the size of a pencil eraser, around the inside surface of your upper and lower dentures. Or, apply three or four denture strips or a thin layer of denture powder. Space the adhesive evenly, and dont apply it too close to the edges.

6 Rinse your mouth with water.

7 Place your dentures in your mouth, and press them firmly into place. Bite down for a few seconds to secure.

Tips and warnings

Start by using a very small amount of denture adhesive, and increase the amount if needed. If adhesive oozes out of the denture when you bite down, reduce the amount of adhesive the next time.

Experiment with different types of denture adhesives until you find one that suits you.

Application directions for denture adhesive products vary, so be sure to follow the instructions on the package.

Consult your dentist if your dentures begin to feel loose or uncomfortable. Denture adhesives are not a solution for old, ill-fitting dentures.
