Denture Adhesives (Denture Glue)

With age, your mouth will continue to change as bone under your denture shrinks or recedes.  Over time, dentures can become loose and may need refitting or replacing.

If you are a singer/musician or if public speaking is your speciality then you can benefit from using a denture adhesive for extra security.  Perhaps you have a lack of saliva in your mouth or have very little tissue covering your jaw bone then denture adhesives can also be helpful.

Denture adhesive works best when the denture is well-fitted.  Before using a denture adhesive for the first time we suggest having the fit of your denture assessed at Zillmere Denture Clinic especially if they are not as comfortable as they used to be.

 

Olivafix Denture Adhesive (Natural olive oil based denture adhesive cream)

  • Free from zinc, petrochemicals and parabens (preservatives).
  • 35% olive oil.
  • Long lasting 24 hour hold.
  • Dermatologically safe.

Olivafix application instructions:-

  • Clean and wet the denture before applying Olivafix.
  • Apply to the fitting surface of the denture with a small instrument.  You will need to experiment with how much you may require to use depending on how long you need the adhesive to be effective. Recommend starting with a small amount and increase if necessary.
  • Have a small sip of water to moisten your gums.
  • Place your denture in your mouth and maintain pressure for a few seconds.
  • Avoid food and drink for a maximum of 20 minutes or until the adhesive has bonded to the gum.
  • Olivafix usually removes easily from your denture and gums.  However, it may be necessary to remove any residue with a small amount of olive oil on a cotton bud.
