Irritation and cytotoxic potential of denture adhesives.
Ronald Al, Jon Einar Dahl, Else Morisbak and Gregory L. Polyzois | September 22nd 2005
The present study aimed to examine the in vitro biocompatibility of denture adhesives.
Denture adhesives absorb water to become viscous and sticky, and by this process, other constituents like colouring, flavouring, wetting and preserving agents may be released. Some of these constituents may induce adverse reactions among users of denture adhesives.
