Denture Fixative: Super Corega Fixative Science and Formulation

Dual polymer system

Denture fixatives can help stabilise, secure and maintain denture performance.3,4

Super Corega fixative dual polymer system consists of two ingredients: carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) and polyvinyl methyl ether/maleic acid (PVM/MA).

  • Two polymers are activated on contact with saliva, expand and cross-link to create an elastic polymer network
    • This elastic network can resist both tensile forces and shear stresses
  • Increasing both retention and stability of the denture2

Super Corega helps seal and protect against food entrapment

Super Corega fixative sealing action helps reduce food entrapment between the denture and mucosa by 74%.*5
