Dentures

High-Quality Dentures Icon

Dentures are dental prosthetics used to replace missing teeth. They are often referred to as ‘false teeth’ because while they do look like natural teeth, conventional high-quality dentures can be easily removed for cleaning and maintenance.

Are all dentures the same?

Dentures play an important role in how well you can bite and chew, and how clearly you can speak, so there’s no ‘one size fits all’ denture. At Gosford Family Dentist, we work closely with dental technicians to provide high-quality dentures specifically for you. We work with you to make adjustments until you are satisfied with the look and feel of your dentures.

We provide the following dentures and related services at our Central Coast dental practice:

  • implant supported dentures.
  • partial dentures.
  • immediate dentures.
  • denture repairs.
  • denture relining.

If you think you need dentures, or you have dentures that are loose or broken, contact us to schedule an appointment to discuss high quality dentures to suit you and your lifestyle. 

Caring for your dentures

Your dentist will provide full details on how to care for your dentures, but some simple tips to take care of your new dentures include: 

  • Clean your dentures in the morning and before going to bed at night. This will maintain good oral hygiene. 
  • Remove your dentures before going to sleep at night. Leaving your dentures out overnight gives your mouth a chance to rest and recover. It also helps to prevent fungal infections.

Getting used to dentures

It can often take a short time to adjust to your new dentures. Start out by eating soft foods, eating slowly, and cutting food into small pieces. You can begin to introduce hard foods eventually. Take your time and if you do experience any pain or discomfort, contact our friendly team as soon as possible for adjustments.

You may also feel that talking feels slightly different while wearing your dentures. You might sound slightly different, and you may hear your dentures ‘click’. If this occurs, discuss this with your dentist who can provide a solution to assist.
