No you do not. You can do it as a matter of personal preference. I personally recommend Secure Denture Adhesive for serious chewing. But for a few hours or just to step out on the town, You can use any brand. Secure is like super glue, so you do not want to use it if you plan on taking them out in an hour or two. But I only brush mine in the morning after they soak when I sleep. So may recommend to brush them several times a day, and I might do that eventually but I would keep them in while brushing them. Ask Gums is having a giveaway for 2 free tubes of secure adhesive.

Hi Miguel, are you using a denture adhesive? If you are not, choosing one like Fixodent Plus Gum Care can help your dentures stay in place securely while you eat and chew. If you are using an adhesive, keep in mind that very hot and very cold food can affect the hold of your dentures. Hope this helps, and thanks for reaching out!
