Denture Wearers Embrace New Smile Yet Avoid Popular Foods
 

Survey Reveals Denture Wearers Are Confident, However Socially Anxious

CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--According to a recent survey by Wakefield Research on behalf of Fixodent, denture wearers are more likely to limit their behavior, ignore certain foods and avoid certain social situations due to their dentures. This can lead to avoiding certain activities or interactions that can lead to living life to the fullest. In addition to understanding denture wearers' attitudes and fears around their dentures, this survey explores denture wearers' lack of education around denture adhesive and the benefits this type of product can provide to enhance people's everyday lives.

Even after adjusting to life with dentures and embracing their new smile, many people find it difficult to regain their everyday routine. While there's no need to stop indulging in great meals with dentures, 72% of respondents admit they avoid some type of food, including: corn on the cob (38%), nuts (29%), apples (25%) and steak (19%). Even between meals they're skipping things – with over half (52%) of respondents avoiding gum.

In addition to ordering “denture-safe” food, more than 1 in 3 denture wearers admit to skipping an activity such as: eating out in public (29%), being intimate (16%) and going out with friends or family (11%) because they feel self-conscious about their dentures. Another concern for denture wearers is an increase in oral health issues (77%) since receiving dentures. This includes: food left under dentures after eating (64%), gum irritation or soreness (34%), pain while eating (18%) and bad breath (14%).

Most denture wearers don't understand that a denture adhesive can assist in protecting your mouth from the hidden enemies of food particles and odor causing bacteria. Of adults ages 45+ who wear dentures or partials, 80% believe adhesive is only necessary to improve denture stability and hold.

“Using an adhesive is a simple step you can take to make a difference in your mouth's oral hygiene. Fixodent helps to protect your mouth from food particles and kills odor-causing bacteria for a clean mouth and fresh breath. With Fixodent, you can eat, drink, laugh, and go about your day knowing that your dentures will stay in place,” says Fixodent Brand Manger Matthew Martin.

Of those respondents that use denture adhesive, 76% agree that they can't imagine not using it again and 80% say denture adhesive is “easy to use.”

Although respondents admit to limiting their social behavior and an increase in oral hygiene issues, denture wearers are confident about their new smile. Most (63%) are able to talk freely with friends, family and professionals about their dentures.

Fixodent comes in several easy-to-use varieties, protecting your mouth from food particles and killing odor-causing bacteria and providing you with a long, strong hold. Fixodent products include:

Survey Methodology
The 2013 Fixodent Survey was conducted by Wakefield Research (www.wakefieldresearch.com) among 500 U.S. adults, ages 45+ who wear dentures or partials, between March 28th and April 3rd, 2013, using an email invitation and an online survey. Results of any sample are subject to sampling variation.

The magnitude of the variation is measurable and is affected by the number of interviews and the level of the percentages expressing the results. For the interviews conducted in this particular study, the chances are 95 in 100 that a survey result does not vary, plus or minus, by more than 4.4 percentage points from the result that would be obtained if interviews had been conducted with all persons in the universe represented by the sample.
