When you use Fixodent adhesive cream, the natural moisture in your mouth changes the soft cream into an elastic-like membrane that helps hold your dentures tight, so you can bite harder and eat more naturally.
Zinc is used in Fixodent denture adhesives to help provide denture hold. Fixodent denture adhesive cream helps the denture stay in place securely so you can eat, chew, and talk more confidently.
There are a number of published clinical studies showing that denture adhesives actually improve the performance of properly fitting dentures. Using denture adhesives might help reduce irritation and sore spots caused by denture rub. Denture adhesive is not a substitute for poorly fitting dentures. See your dentist or prosthodontist regularly to ensure properly fitting dentures, as poorly fitting dentures may impair health. It is important to use Fixodent as directed. There is no gain in hold from using more adhesive than directed. There is no additional hold benefit by applying more adhesive than directed. Excessive and prolonged zinc intake is reported to be associated with serious health problems. Consult a doctor if using other products containing zinc.
