Oral Care Glossary
Dentists and Hygienist have a language all their own. This guide breaks down the professional terminology into everyday language.
Denture adhesives are used to secure the denture into place in the mouth to prevent it from slipping or moving. A variety of denture adhesives are available as pastes (cream/gel form), powders or wafers. Adhesives aren't always necessary for every denture wearer. Talk to your dentist to determine if denture adhesives are right for you.
