Difference Between Secure Dental Adhesive vs. Conventional Adhesives:
Secure Dental Adhesive is the only adhesive that is non water-soluble. It will not be washed away by liquids or saliva—or while eating or drinking.
Secure Denture Adhesive is a real adhesive, providing an extremely strong bonding effect, thus, preventing dentures from slipping or sliding all day long.
Conventional denture adhesives work by thickening saliva to improve suction between the denture and gum. The denture holds only by suction.
Conventional denture adhesives are water-soluble. They can wash away while you're eating and drinking.
Secure Dental Adhesive is not water soluble, so it will not wash away while you're eating or drinking.
Secure forms a actual bond between your teeth and your gums, creating a long-lasting hold for up to 12 hours
With Secure Dental Adhesive you can talk, eat and drink with new confidence.
Secure Dental Adhesive is recommended by dentists in 50 countries in the world.
Clinical Study Results
In a clinical study conducted at the University Of Michigan School Of Dentistry, 25 experienced denture wearers evaluated the effectiveness of Secure Denture Bonding Cream.
Are Your Dentures Secure?
If you are one of the 32 million people estimated to wear full or partial dentures in the U.S., denture adhesive is a fact of life. Isn’t it true that what you need is a denture adhesive that allows your dentures to sit as firmly on the jaw as if you had your own teeth again, giving you a completely natural feeling when you talk, laugh, eat or drink?
Most denture adhesives work by suction. For many denture wearers, however, this is not enough and slippage is a real problem because it can interfere with your ability to bite and chew and can even affect your speech, as well as allow food particles to get trapped underneath your dentures. In addition, typical denture adhesives have a taste that interferes with the flavor of foods. Plus denture adhesive can dissolve and particles wind up being swallowed. According to a 2000 study 37% of denture wearers have to reapply adhesive during the day. As you can imagine, these factors combine to pose a quality of life issue.
Seeing the need for something better for his patients inspired an Austrian dentist to develop a new technology for denture adhesive. Dr. Altwirth found a way to make a denture adhesive that does not work by suction, (which allows for slippage) but actually forms a safe, secure bond with the gums. He called his unique, new product SECURE -- the first denture adhesive that is non-water soluble. That means, unlike conventional denture adhesives, it is not dissolved by liquids or saliva. None of it is swallowed, does not alter taste, and requires only one application a day.
If you’re a denture wearer, you’ll appreciate this as reapplication several times a day can be inconvenient and also adds to overall cost. Because you apply SECURE denture adhesive just once a day, SECURE is economical to use.
Based on a new, patented technology, SECURE is made from ingredients used in the base of many chewing gums. Because it is non-water soluble, it doesn’t dissolve and does not wind up in the stomach. It has no taste, so foods taste just like they are supposed to. Because it does not work by suction as other denture adhesives do, the bond it forms allows you to enjoy the foods you love, and to confidently smile, talk and laugh.
With SECURE denture adhesive you can put your dentures in and forget that you are wearing them. After all, dentures were designed to enhance your life. SECURE was designed to enhance your dentures ability to do just that.
If we apply conventional denture adhesives on two pieces of glass, we cannot separate the two pieces of glass, but we can move them. This movement is like slipping and sliding of the dentures in the mouth. This movement in the mouth makes the pronunciation of “Mississippi” become “Mischischippi”.
If we apply Secure denture adhesive on two pieces of glass, we cannot separate them, neither can we move them. Secure's new technology creates a secure, strong bond, preventing dentures from slipping and sliding.
Frequently Asked Questions:
What are the main ingredients of Secure Denture Adhesive?
Sodium Carboxymethylcellulose: This ingredient derives from Cellulose. Cellulose is produced from trees or cotton wool. The supplier of the ingredient of Secure adhesive is using Scandinavian fir and spruce exclusively for Secure's ingredient as they insist on very high quality.
Polyvinylacetat (PVA): PVA is completely inert, non allergic, does not affect the taste and cannot be absorbed. Polyvinylacetate is a very common ingredient in chewing gums and registered as substance for chewing gum base in Europe as well as in the USA.
Can Secure Denture Adhesive be used like other adhesives?
Secure Denture Adhesive is a completely unique product, so users must learn how to use it properly. Secure must be applied on a clean and completely dry denture. It has a higher viscosity than conventional adhesives because of its composition, so only a small amount is needed. One application in the morning will hold into the night. Secure does not need to be applied as often as conventional adhesives since it is non water-soluble in water and will not wash out while eating and drinking.
Can a denture wearer who wears a soft lined denture use Secure Denture Adhesive?
An optimal bonding effect can only be achieved if Secure Denture Adhesive is used with a hard and smooth base. Dentures with soft linings will reduce the bonding effect of Secure Denture Adhesive.
If Secure Denture Adhesive is non water-soluble, how can the denture be removed?
Secure consists of two main components: The Polyvinylacetate is the adhesive. It works only on a dry surface. To keep the jaw dry, Secure uses Carboxymethylcellulose (CMC). CMC works like a sponge – it absorbs saliva. If the sponge ”is filled” with saliva and no more saliva can be absorbed, the jaw becomes wet, the Polyvinylacetate loses contact with the jaw and the denture stays in place only by suction. The user can remove the dentures. All the residues of the adhesive will remain on the dentures. No adhesive is left on the gum. The residues of the adhesive can easily be removed by using Secure cleansing tablets.
The Secure Denture Adhesive is getting dry in the tube nozzle - why?
Secure Denture Adhesive may get dry in the tube nozzle if the tube stays open for a longer period of time or it the tube is not closed tightly. To avoid this problem, always close the tube tightly right after use!
Can the denture be removed before the saturation point is reached?
Normally, there is no need to remove the denture since no food particles get trapped underneath. However, in specific cases - like accidents- the denture can be removed by little force. It will be a painless procedure and will cause no negative effects, but residues might be left on the gum. These residues are not harmful and will come off by themselves after a few hours. Under no circumstances should denture cleansers or other removal methods be used to clean the gum.
What happens if the denture stays in the mouth longer than one day?
The denture can be cleaned with a toothbrush and toothpaste, anytime after eating, just like natural teeth. Since Secure Denture Adhesive provides perfect adhesion, no food particles can get trapped beneath the dentures. Therefore, the denture does not need to be removed for cleaning. If shorter bonding effect is desired, simply apply less adhesive.
Will Secure Denture Adhesive work if the user has a problem with excessive saliva?
Yes, but an increased amount of Secure Denture Adhesive should be used in this case. If the lower denture does not stay in place for one day, Secure Denture Adhesive Cushions should be used instead. The Secure Adhesive cushions were developed for denture wearers with excessive saliva and/or very narrow/flat lower jaw.
Will Secure Denture Adhesive work if the denture wearer has a problem with dry mouth?
Yes. Secure Denture Adhesive is a real adhesive which does not work by suction alone, so it is an effective solution for denture wearers with dry mouth.
Can Secure Denture Adhesive cause allergic reactions?
All ingredients of Secure denture adhesive are approved and used in food industry. Secure Adhesive has been sold for more than 20 years all over the world. No major allergic reactions have occurred. But as the user can be allergic to any kind of food -even a tomato can cause allergic reactions -reactions cannot completely be ruled out.
Does Secure contain zinc?
Secure is absolutely free of zinc.
Most of the denture adhesives contain zinc. Can zinc be harmful to health?
Although zinc is safe to be ingested in small amounts, it can be dangerous to be taken in excess. Zinc overdose can lead to zinc poisoning, neuropathy and other neurological side effects.
A clinical study conducted at the University of Texas, published in the journal Neurology, reported on patients who suffered from neuropathy and other neurological side effects associated with long-term use of denture adhesives which contain zinc.
Secure Denture Adhesive Cream and Cushions are absolutely free of zinc!
The user has sensitive gums, how can she/he reduce the tingling or burning feeling?
For sensitive gums, the adhesive should be spread with the finger in a thin and even layer over the entire contact area and left to dry for 30 seconds before inserting. The user should wait 15 minutes before eating or drinking.
What if users have a sticky feeling when using Secure Denture?
In this case, too much Secure Denture Adhesive was applied on the denture. The user should not apply Secure Denture Adhesive too close to the edge of the denture.
Can Secure Denture Adhesive be used for partial dentures?
Yes. Partial dentures are fixed onto natural teeth with clamps. Secure Denture Adhesive can be used so food does not get caught underneath the partial denture.
Have any studies on Secure Denture Adhesive System’s effectiveness been conducted?
The Secure Denture Adhesive System has been proven effective in clinical studies conducted in Europe, the United States and China. In all studies, Secure was rated the best denture adhesive in the overall evaluation, and was overwhelmingly preferred by denture wearers. Test results confirm that Secure Denture Adhesive System improves chewing ability and denture retention.
How long does Secure Denture Adhesive stay fresh after purchase?
Its shelf life is 4 years. The user should be advised to close the tube tightly right after use.
How long will a 40 gram tube of Secure Denture Adhesive last?
It depends on the size of the denture and the amount of adhesive which is spread over the denture. On average, a 40 gram (1,4 oz) tube of Secure Denture Adhesive will last between 4 and 8 weeks.
The adhesive can hardly be squeezed out of the tube - why?
The consistency of Secure Denture Adhesive is related to temperature. Users should be advised that Secure Denture Adhesive must be kept at room temperature. If the tube is cold, it should be warmed in the hands for a short time before using.
