Your dentures are important to the way you look and feel. That’s why it’s important to maintain your dentures and ensure they perform at their optimum.
Denture recalls are an essential part of maintaining good oral health for those who wear dentures. At Denture Health Care, our services are designed to ensure that your dentures fit correctly, function effectively and remain in good condition for as long as possible. During a denture recall appointment, our specialised denture prosthetist team will examine the dentures and the surrounding tissues to check for any changes or issues that may have arisen since your last appointment.
Our professional team will also provide a clean and denture polish to remove any build-up of plaque or debris. At Denture Health Care, it is recommended that denture wearers attend a recall appointment at least once a year to ensure the longevity and effectiveness of dentures.
The Important of Denture Maintenance
A regular clean and denture check up ensures that your dentures are functioning at their best capacity and can prevent further issues such as gum irritation, bad breath, and even oral infections if left too long. Proper maintenance of your dentures can also extend their lifespan, saving you time and money in the long run on repairs and/or replacements. Additionally, as dentures are custom-made for each individual, they require regular maintenance to ensure the optimal fit and comfort, given our mouths can slightly adjust as we continue to grow.
Neglecting to maintain your dentures can result in discomfort, poor fit, and even damage to your oral tissue leading to additional complications. This is why it is essential to prioritise the maintenance of your dentures to ensure optimal oral health, comfort, and longevity of your prosthetic teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions
Think of a denture recall as an assessment. We will evaluate how your dentures are fitting and make adjustments as needed. It is also an excellent opportunity for you to share any concerns you may have and discuss available options. Contact Denture Health Care on 1300 304 092 or reach out to us online to schedule an appointment.
Remove your dentures and brush them with a soft-bristled toothbrush at least once a day, twice is better, using a nonabrasive denture cleaner. In general, avoid using toothpaste as many brands can scratch or otherwise damage your dentures. Overnight, soak your dentures in warm water or a denture-soaking solution to keep them from becoming dry and brittle. Do not us hot or boiling water as this may cause them to lose their shape.
We recommend scheduling a denture check up once every six months. However, if for example, you are experiencing discomfort, an improper fit or bleeding gums you should make an appointment immediately. For more details, call us on 1300 304 092 or contact us online, we would be happy to answer all of your questions.
A denture polish smoothes out the denture while also removing tartar buildup and other stains. After polishing, your denture will look better and be cleaner.
