    Has issues with food seal

    Complains of:”even though the fit [of my dentures] was great, I found myself in a toilet somewhere taking out the denture and rinsing it under the tap to get food off it”

    After using Poligrip: “I feel confident the denture won’t move and it also provides a seal so that no food gets under the denture”

  • Lynn 61, Has issues with retention

    Poligrip user Lynn speaking with confidence

    Has issues with retention

    Complains of: “In terms of my job as an actress, I have a camera pointed at my face most weeks, so when I am doing something like a play or say a film, the last thing I want to be thinking about are, are my dentures okay? Can people see them? Are they moving?”

    After using Poligrip: “It's not just in terms of sort of, the fixative just keeping the dentures in place, it's also the confidence that no matter what you're doing, who you're talking to, you're not going to have dentures moving”

  • David 56, Had issues with getting used to dentures

    Denture patient David speaking with dentist

    Had issues with getting used to dentures

    Complained of:“When I first put the dentures in, they felt really big in my mouth and it felt awkward.”

    A patient may have concerns about breath odour when wearing her retainer

    A patient might say for example: I worry about odour from my retainer but find it hard to know how to clean it. Sometimes I forget to brush it…instead giving it a quick rinse…

    After using Poligrip, a patient might say: I feel confident that my retainer is clean. The cleanser removes bacteria which may cause breath odour.
