I work in a dental office and I have a patient that is having trouble with Fixodent, or any other adhesive, sticking to her denture! Any suggestions would be appreciated! Or, if you have experienced this problem and have a solution, PLEASE ADVISE!
Hi there, sorry to hear your patient is having trouble
using a denture adhesive! If she is having trouble using a cream adhesive, one
possible problem could be that she is applying the cream to wet dentures
instead of dry. Adhesive should be applied to dry dentures in thin strips. If
she is applying the cream properly, it might be that a powder adhesive would be
more effective, as it provides a thinner seal. However, powder adhesives are
used with wet dentures. Please consider passing on our care team phone number
to your patient; they may have more suggestions. The number is 1-855-236-3353
(M-F, 9am-6pm EST). Hope this helps!
