Your dentures are only as good as the dental technician who’s made them. Dentures are a precise dental appliance and should fit perfectly. The Clinical Dental Technician making your dentures should take their time taking your impressions and make sure that the impressions are flawless and accurate. After all, this is what your full dentures and partial dentures are made on and if made correctly will stay in place and fit perfectly and give you the confidence to talk, laugh, smile and eat with confidence.
Of course some patients want the added comfort that they won’t move and denture adhesive gives that confidence. Use a Denture adhesive if you want to but make sure it’s fully removed from your dentures daily before going to bed.
