How do I clean my dentures?
The best way to keep your dentures clean is to first brush your denture with a medium bristled toothbrush in warm soapy water. Yes – we recommend Australian pure soap, but ensure you
thoroughly rinse off all the suds. Once the denture has been cleaned, place your denture on a clean dry towel by your bathroom basin or somewhere safe and leave it there overnight. We do not recommend regular toothpaste to clean your dentures as it can act as an abrasive and damage the dentures.
Can I personalise my dentures?
Yes, dentures can be personalised with gold inlays, small diamantes or precious stones, gum tinting and identification (essential for patients in nursing homes).
Do you offer a same day service for dentures?
Yes, we do same day denture repairs, denture relines and additions. We provide a fully functioning dental lab service for local dentists requiring Australian made quality dentures for their patients. We offer quick turnaround times and a delivery and pick up service.
Do I sleep with my dentures in?
While ideally you should leave them out at night to allow the gums to recover, many patients do not like to be seen by their partner without their dentures in – so we recommend you do whatever is comfortable for you.
How often should I get new dentures?
It is advisable to get a new set of dentures every 5-7 years to keep up with the changes in the mouth and to avoid any signs of deterioration and wear to the dentures.
Do I still need to get dental check-ups when I have dentures?
Yes, a regular six-monthly check up is advisable to avoid any unforeseen problems and to check the underlying tissues supporting the denture for signs of infection or sore spots.
Do you offer payment plans for dentures?
Yes, we offer payment plans from $25 per week – pensioners are welcome to apply. Please ask us for more information.
