Best denture adhesive reviews - a review of the strongest denture adhesive.

Asking people which is the best denture adhesive or the strongest denture adhesive is a bit like asking which is the best deodorant. Every denture wearer has their own opinion! But denture adhesive reviews can help show which ones are worth looking at.

As a dentist, I can tell you the best denture adhesives available that I know of. Then you need to try them out to see which one suits you best.

You're probably thinking - "well, if my denture fitted properly, I wouldn't need a denture adhesive!"

BUT that's not true.

We'll take a look at the "how and why" of denture adhesives in a minute.

But first . . .

Here's my Best Denture Adhesive review

This is my list of the BEST denture adhesives, based on my experience AND what my patients have told me over the past 30 years!
  • IN FIRST PLACE - I think the best is Fitty Dent, marketed under the name Dentek Secure in the USA, Canada and the U.K.

    It claims to be the only non water-soluble adhesive. This means that it doesn't wash out from under the denture. It lasts and lasts!

    Secure is available as a paste OR as wafers. It is also free of zinc.

    My patients who use Dentek Secure tell me that it works very well, and that it does indeed last all day. I would strongly recommend the paste, because you can get a really thin layer inside the denture.

    It's VERY important to use the thinnest layer possible, because this gets the strongest result!

    The wafers are also quite thin, but not as thin as a smear of the paste!

  • IN SECOND PLACE, close behind, is Super Poligrip. It is a very good product, and shows up very well in many denture adhesive reviews. It used to contain zinc, until May 2010. They changed the formula at that point, and any packets manufactured after May 2010 are zinc-free.

    Some people feel that Super Poligrip has a slightly grainy feel when first applied, but this seems to wear off after a few minutes. Click on the picture below for the best deal on Super Poligrip!

  • IN THIRD PLACE IS Cushion Grip. This is claimed to last for 4 days at a time. Yes, FOUR DAYS!! You put it inside the denture, wear the denture as normal, then take the denture out at night (but leave the Cushion Grip in place). Then you just go ahead and wear the denture again the next day. After 4 days, replace the Cushion Grip! There is no other denture adhesive that lasts as long as Cushion Grip. Here is a link to check prices on this great product - just click on the image;

  • IN FOURTH PLACE COMES Fixodent. Fixodent denture adhesive is one of the few denture adhesives that still contain Zinc. My understanding was that the Zinc had been removed from Fixodent products, but according to the Fixodent website, it clearly states that Zinc is still present in the Fixodent products. This is a VERY LOW level, and when used as directed is NOT A PROBLEM. Click on the product image to see the best deal

  • IN FIFTH PLACE in my Denture Adhesive Review is Sea Bond. This is a wafer that you can cut to shape while it is dry, before you put it inside the denture. This product has been discontinued in some countries, so may not be available where you are. Here is a link to Amazon.com to buy Seabond denture adhesive;

Here is some information about the zinc poisoning problem.

Why would you want to use a denture adhesive?

To reduce the movement of your denture on the gums.

It's possible to have a denture that is actually a good close fit to your gums, but it doesn't stay in place very well because THE SHAPE OF YOUR GUMS doesn't give the denture much grip.

For example, the roof of your mouth (palate) may be rather low and flat, so your denture can't get much grip or suction onto your palate. Your denture can move around on your gums when you are eating, causing irritation to the soft gum tissues, and it will feel loose.

On the other hand, if the roof of your mouth is high and arched, a denture will get more grip, and be more secure. In this case, the denture will sit snugly in position, and hardly move at all when you are eating.


The poorer the fit of your denture, the less well a denture adhesive will work.

This is because adhesives work better when they are THIN. You get the thinnest layer if your denture is a good fit to start with!

As your denture gets older and your gums change shape, you start to get spaces and gaps under the denture. Using a denture adhesive in this situation may help a bit, but the bigger the gaps, the less well it works. And the more adhesive you need. Even the best denture adhesive will not work as well as it could.

Instead of spending more money by using greater and greater amounts of denture adhesive, you would be much better off getting a new set of dentures that fit well. Then you can use a really THIN smear of the strongest denture adhesive, and your dentures will be stable, secure and comfortable.

So remember; the best denture adhesive is always a VERY THIN LAYER of your favorite product. I hope this look at the strongest denture adhesive reviews has been helpful!
