A denture is a removable dental prosthetic that is used to replace one or more missing teeth for aesthetic and functional purposes. The amount of teeth that can be replaced with a denture vary and can range from only one tooth to all teeth.

If you are missing teeth or know you need to get teeth removed, book in with one of our friendly dentists who will conduct a thorough clinical examination and X-Rays in order to get a detailed idea of your current dental health. They will then discuss your short and long term options with you and work closely with you to determine the treatment option that is best suited to your needs.

Just like with anything new and unfamiliar, wearing a denture requires patience and perseverance. Patients may struggle to eat and speak with their dentures or find their denture dislodging. However, if the denture is made to fit well and with good guidance from your dentist as well as time and practice, most people are able to adapt to eating with their dentures.

Some simple instructions to always follow if you have dentures include:

  • Remove denture and clean it after meals
  • Brush denture twice a day with a soft toothbrush to remove food and plaque
  • Remove denture at night and keep it in a denture container
  • Clean denture with warm water, mild soap and toothbrush
  • Clean gums and remaining teeth with a soft toothbrush and toothpaste

At your denture insert appointment, your dentist will go through specific instructions on how to look after your denture for the best and long lasting results.
