Full Answer

Super Poligrip is available as a cream, powder or adhesive strip and is also zinc-free. Only a small amount of the material provides a long lasting bond that keeps even minute food particles from getting underneath the dentures, which can cause significant discomfort and gum problems.

Sea Bond is a zinc-free denture adhesive made of thin wafer seals to fit both upper and lower dentures. Though the wafer seals may need to be cut to fit appropriately, they provide a long lasting secure hold by dampening the wafer seal before applying the denture.

Secure denture adhesive is typically water soluble and zinc-free, providing a firm hold that lasts all day as saliva and other liquids do not thin and weaken the material, which causes the bond to loosen. It is available in either a cream or wafer seal, although the cream provides a thinner layer of the substance for a longer lasting adhesion.
