Dental and Oral Health (Seniors)

Loose fitting uppers

12/02/2008

Question:

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.

Answer:

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.
