Getting dentures can be a huge adjustment, and you might feel a bit nervous about what this new experience will feel like. Fixodent® denture adhesive is here to help. With its adhesive strength, Fixodent makes sure your dentures will stay in place. Here are a few helpful tips to help guide you through your first denture experience.

  • Speaking: At first, you might find pronouncing certain words requires practice, but reading out loud and repeating troublesome words helps. 

  • If you notice your dentures "click" while you're talking, speak more slowly. 

  • Fitting: Your new dentures might feel awkward for a few weeks until you get used to them. They might also feel loose while the muscles of your cheek and tongue learn to keep them in place. This feeling will fade as your mouth becomes accustomed to them. 

  • Slipping: You might also find your dentures occasionally slip when you laugh, cough, or smile. To fix this problem just reposition your dentures by gently biting down and swallowing.  

Equipped with these tips and the strength of Fixodent denture adhesive products, you will find it easier to speak clearly and avoid denture slips. The extra security and improved fit Fixodent provides will give you the confidence to laugh and smile more naturally.
