A company earns the ADA Seal for its product by providing evidence that meets the ADA criteria for safety and efficacy. The ADA Council on Scientific Affairs carefully evaluates the evidence according to the Guidelines for Participation in the ADA’s Seal of Acceptance Program.
In addition, there is a specific guideline for this product category called Denture Adherents
which includes, but is not limited to, the following criteria:
- Studies demonstrating that the integrity of the denture is not affected by the adherent
- Biocompatibility studies
- Clinical data demonstrating the effectiveness of the denture adherent in providing increased biting force, increased retention, and that the integrity of the dentures is not affected by the adherent.
