If you have a removable dental appliance, like dentures, Dr. Garth Collins designed it to fit firmly with the surrounding structures in your mouth. At the same time, you might want to also consider using a little denture adhesive. Not only will it provide an extra-secure hold, but it can also prevent stray food particles from infiltrating the base of your gums.
When you take your dentures out before bed, you should rinse away any residual denture adhesive. Then, you should brush your dentures and any remaining teeth before soaking the appliance overnight. This will ensure a clean surface so you can reapply denture adhesive the next morning.
Be sure to always look for the American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance. This seal means that the ADA has subjected the product to significant research and testing to make sure it meets rigorous guidelines for consumer use.
