Denture adhesives have been used for many years by denture wearers, although properly fitted and maintained dentures should not require the use of denture adhesives. A number of studies have been conducted to assess the effectiveness of denture adhesives, but there have been few reports in the dental literature on the number of denture wearers who use them regularly. This could be due to the dismissive attitude of a prosthodontist and mistaken belief of its limitation only to compensate deficiencies in clinical and technical measures during denture fabrication. On the contrary, denture adhesives increase chewing efficiency with more retention, reduce denture instability, and provide more satisfaction; thus increasing the confidence of the patients under proper instructions of a prosthodontist about its cautioned use.
