Pros and Cons of Denture Pads

Posted on 11/16/2020 by Dr. Frank Sallustio
Pros and Cons of Denture PadsDentures are a very important part of many people's lives, helping them to eat properly and giving them confidence; unfortunately, dentures may become less adhesive over time, or may not provide the necessary adhesion to eat the foods the you like. Denture pads are adhesives that can get your dentures adhering much better. Keep reading to learn more about denture pads, and some reasons why they may or may not be the best choice for you.

Weighing the Options

Denture pads can really be a savior if your dentures become loose and you really need something to help them stick, however, be aware that issues with denture adherence are often a result of dentures that are no longer properly fitted to your mouth. With that said, the following are reasons for and against using denture pads. Denture pads typically provide increased comfort, which can reduce the soreness of your gums.

Additionally, denture pads provide extra adhesion and more secureness to your dentures; this can make it easier to dive into some of your favorite sticky food without feeling like your dentures are going to pop out. The cons of denture pads revolve around cost and problem-masking. Denture pads usually need to be replaced everyday due to wear and tear, as well as bacteria build-up; while denture pads may seem inexpensive, their frequent replacement means that the price of using them will quickly add-up. Due to the fact that denture pads provide artificial adhesion to your dentures, you may not realize that you have a problem with your dentures not fitting correctly.

It is very important that you regularly check that your dentures are fitting properly; it could end-up saving you more money in the long run if you get your dentures refitted instead of masking the problem with denture pads. Please call us if you have any questions about using denture pads. We would love to help you determine the most comfortable way for you to wear them.
