Abstract

Background: Patients with xerostomia complain of not only dryness of mouth but also discomfort during routine normal oral functions like speaking and swallowing. These complain is worse in individuals wearing removable intraoral dental prosthesis. In such situations, when salivary flow decreases, denture adhesives and salivary substitutes are recommended; which aid in denture retention and improve patient comfort. Material & Method: A total 150 samples were prepared using heat-cure acrylic resin of 30mm×30mm×5mm. All samples were equally divided in A,B,C,D,E groups, wherein Group A was control group with salivary substitutes. Group B was denture adhesive cream without salivary substitutes. Group C was denture adhesive cream with salivary substitutes. Group D was denture adhesive strips without salivary substitutes. Group E was denture adhesive strips with salivary substitutes. The retentive force was measured for all samples using universal testing machine. Results: Data was collected and statistical analysis was done by one-way ANOVA test followed by post hoc test. The significant difference was found between the retentive forces of cream type and strip type denture adhesives with or without salivary substitutes. Conclusion: From this study, it is concluded that denture adhesive will definitely increases the denture retention. The cream type denture adhesive with salivary substitutes has the most retention than among all groups. [Shah D Natl J Integr Res Med, 2020; 12(1):62-67]
