Rights and Permissions

Denture adhesives are used by an endless number of denture wearers and also by the dentists who fabricate them. Even then, Prosthodontists have a negative attitude towards the use of denture adhesives and assume that to advocate their use is a means of compensating deficiencies in clinical and technical procedures. Denture adhesives increase denture retention and thereby improve chewing ability, reduce denture wobble, improve comfort and confidence, and reduce amount of food particles collecting under the dentures. Moreover, adhesives undoubtedly provide the patients an increased sense of security and satisfaction, but they should use denture adhesives only on the advice of their dentists. Patients should also be instructed about the proper use and cautioned against misuse of denture adhesives, as a part of denture post delivery instructions.
