Dentures quite often start out reasonable well. As long as there is bone to keep the dentures stable they can be tolerated by many. But when the bone resorbs, at a rate of 5% each year, living with dentures becomes more difficult as the suction between the mouth and the denture is lost. About one third to one half of the denture wearers use denture adhesive to regain the suction. When I recommend denture adhesive I always tell the patient to use just a little bit here and there. But it always turns out that they apply way more that needed.
IT ALL STARTS WITH A SMILE
With a positive attitude, patience and practice, you’ll be facing the future with confidence. And before long, your smile will come as easily as ever.

You may experience a gag reaction to this fullness, particularly in the back of your mouth. This is a normal reaction. In a short period of time, this sensation will go away and your dentures will feel more natural.
