Restoring your smile with dentures from Red Hill Dental Practice

Dentures have been around for many years and can replace several teeth or an entire upper or lower arch (or both). Dentures are typically fabricated from an acrylic resin that may be bonded to a metal base for support and structure.

Wearing dentures

It might take a while for most people to get used to wearing dentures. Many find their speech affected, and the dentures feel slightly unusual and foreign for a time. Having a soft food diet and liquids for a few weeks after receiving your dentures is also advisable. You should not wear your dentures overnight, as removing them allows the gums to rest and breathe and promotes better oral health and wellness overall.

Over time the natural shape and contour of the gums will change. This is why it is so vital that you visit us at Red Hill Dental Practice routinely to ensure your dentures still fit securely and any adjustments that may be required can be made.

How do I find out if I am a good candidate for dentures?

While many patients might choose dentures to replace their missing teeth, these are not the only solution for patients on the Mornington Peninsula. Dental implants are fast becoming a popular alternative for patients with missing teeth, but they are not suitable for everyone. If you want to be evaluated for dentures, call the practice at (03) 5907 5942 to request a visit with our team at 135 Shoreham Road in Red Hill.
