Dentures are made to fit precisely and usually do not require use of an adhesive for comfort. Prolonged use of denture adhesives can mask infections and cause bone loss in the jaw. Likewise, a poorly fitting denture, causing irritation, may contribute to the development of sores and tumors. Seniors, if your dentures begin to feel loose, or cause pronounced discomfort, please see your dentist immediately.
