Connecticut Grandma Blows Out Dentures Instead of Birthday Candles

There’s a new viral video making the rounds this week featuring a Connecticut grandma celebrating her 102nd birthday. What makes this video such a must-see is that when she tries to blow out the big 1-0-2 candles, she blows out her dentures instead.

Didn’t Want to Wear Adhesive

Together foreverAs with many denture wearers, 102-year-old Louise Bonito relies on denture adhesive to keep her dentures in. But she’s not happy about it. So when it was her birthday, she decided she wanted to go without.

But she didn’t realize what a problem that would cause. When she built up the pressure to blow out the candles on her birthday cake, her dentures caught the pressure and blew right out onto her cake. Everyone was very good-natured about the event, and they all laughed–even Louise–but, reportedly, no one wanted any of the cake after that.

Better-Fitting Dentures Help You Avoid Embarrassment

If you’re a 102-year-old grandma, you can get away with having your dentures blow out when you’re trying to blow your candles out. That’s cute and funny. But if you’re a busy professional trying to emphasize a point in a sales meeting and your denture ends up on the boardroom table, that’s a different story. Revealing anything that’s false about you–even your teeth–can throw off the confidence of clients and customers.

And even if you’re just hanging out with friends, laughing, and having a good time, having your dentures fly out in the middle of lunch isn’t going to be too appetizing. Your best friends won’t think anything of it, but what about your larger social circle?

And then there’s the fact that denture adhesive can be unpleasant in and of itself.

If you’re looking for a way to make your dentures secure so you never have this kind of embarrassing scene and never need denture adhesive, a local FOY® Dentures dentist can help. With some of the best-fitting dentures and implant-supported dentures, you can make sure your dentures always stay exactly where they’re supposed to be.
