Dr. Charles Anderson typically designs and crafts partial dentures at Anderson Dentistry - Mt Pleasant Dentist to fit tightly with the underlying gum structure. Working in concert with interlocking hardware, the partial denture has the strength to bite and chew the foods you enjoy.
Even with this firm fit, you might want to also consider applying a small bead of denture adhesive to the base of the partial.
If stray food particles manage to work their way between the base of the denture and your gums, you should remove your partial and give it a thorough rinse to remove the food particles and any residual denture adhesive. Then, you can use a paper towel to dry the partial to give you a smooth, clean surface so you can reapply fresh denture adhesive.
When you’re shopping for denture adhesive in Mt Pleasant, South Carolina, you should always look for the American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance. This small logo printed on the label signifies that the product has been rigorously researched and tested by the American Dental Association for safe oral use.
