When multiple teeth are lost or severely compromised they can often be replaced by a partial or complete denture provided by Blue Stream Dental ’s dental office. This removable dental appliance will be carefully produced at our state of the art dental lab to replicate the missing teeth while also matching the general shape and contour of the underlying periodontal structure.

While this custom fit helps the denture fit firmly and comfortably in your mouth, you might still want to apply a small amount of denture adhesive when you install it each morning. Not only will this help hold your dentures firmly to your gum structure while also helping to prevent stray food particles from infiltrating the base of your dentures.

When you are shopping for denture adhesive be sure to look for a brand that has earned the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance. It indicates that the specific product has researched, tested and certified for safe oral use.

If you need to take your denture out during the day, you should thoroughly rinse it to clear away plaque and any residual denture adhesive. You can then dry the base with a clean paper towel, before applying fresh denture adhesive and inserting it back in place.

If you have multiple missing or severely compromised teeth and you live in the Kansas City, Missouri, region, you should call 816-569-9787 to explore the denture options offered by Dr. William D. Ledford and his staff.
