Objective: This study was conducted to determine the effect of isabgol as a denture adhesives on the bite force and retention of complete denture wearers and to compare it with two different types of commercially available denture adhesives.
Materials /Methodology: 30 edentulous patients with resorbed ridge were included in the study. isabgol, fixon powder and fittydent powder denture adhesives formed the different variables of the study. Incisal bite force was measured using flexi force sensor whereas retention force was measured using digital force gauge respectively.
Conclusion: The results showed that both the commercially available adhesives and isabgol, significantly improved retention and incisal bite force versus the control values. The mean retention and incisal bite force was significantly more among fitty Dent Powder and isabgol in comparison to fixon.
