New Dentures and Aftercare

Initially dentures will often feel strange and bulky and will cause a feeling of fullness of the lips and cheeks. In time these feelings will subside and you will feel more comfortable. Time and patience will be your biggest allies.

Other symptoms you may experience with new denture are slurred speech, gagging, excessive salivation and funny or diminished taste. These symptoms usually disappear over time. However if they continue please contact our clinic for an appointment, we are here to help you.

Please follow the information below to help with the period of natural adjustment needed for your new dentures.

Dentures typically need relining every 3-5 years as your gums will change and the dentures become loose. If you find your denture moving please contact Sunshine Denture to discuss options.

It is important you have yearly check-ups so that we may check on the wear of your denture and perform an examination to assess your oral health. We will also check for signs of oral cancer and other conditions that can cause problems if ignored.

Never adjust your dentures. Sunshine Denture Limited will not take any responsibility for problems following self adjustment. Please call the clinic if you require adjustment or information.
