Aim: To evaluate and compare the effects of different denture adhesives which are available commercially on retention of maxillary complete denture. Materials and methods: Thirty edentulous patients were selected with well-formed ridges without any undercuts. Denture bases made up of heat cure acrylic resin were fabricated on the master cast by a compression molding technique. A custom-made apparatus was used to test the retention of maxillary denture bases using three test denture adhesives. Readings were noted and were statistically analyzed. Results: Retention of maxillary complete denture was found to be the highest in Supergrip powder (7.04 ± 0.62) followed by Seabond cushion (6.21 ± 0.42) and Supergrip cream (4.91 ± 0.36), and the lowest in control. Post hoc test showed a significant difference between different pairs of denture adhesives and controls as p = 0.0001. Conclusion: This study revealed that Fixon Supergrip powder showed maximum retention.
