Loose fitting uppers
My upper partial dentures were stable until a capped front tooth was snapped and had to be extracted. They are now very loose. I find adhesives horrible to clean from the roof of mouth. Will any relined upper remain secure without glue? The roof of my mouth is highly domed.
Yes, is possible. You can try different denture adhesives at the pharmacy until you found one that fits your need. If not, it may be a time to have a new partial done.
