Denture repairs may be necessary after breakage or chipping, when teeth must be added to an existing denture or due to normal wear. In most cases, your broken or cracked denture can be restored to its original state.
Below, we have compiled important information that will help you determine whether you require denture repair services in Bracebridge.
Unfortunately, dentures are not built to last a lifetime, and you will likely require denture repair sooner or later.
Dropping or hitting your dentures by accident can cause them to crack or break completely. In addition, improper denture maintenance can cause your dentures to wear and tear excessively. Even if you take great care of your dental appliances, they can become loose over time as your jaw bone continues to shrink.
Here are a few risk factors that can cause damage to your dentures:
Sometimes, denture damage is not very apparent. If you are not sure whether your dentures require repairs, look out for the following signs:
If your dentures get damaged or become loose over time, schedule an appointment with the Bracebridge Denture Clinic at your earliest convenience. If your denture requires a repair, it can most likely be completed on the same day.
If your denture got shattered, make sure to collect and bring in as many broken pieces from the denture as possible and never attempt to glue the denture back together by yourself. Applying glue to your dentures can distort the fitting edges, which will make it extremely difficult for Andre to mend the appliance. As long as you bring all the broken pieces to us, you don’t have to worry about putting them back together on your own.
If your dentures are not obviously broken but no longer sit comfortably in your mouth, you might require a denture rebase or reline. Timely denture rebasing and relining not only improve the immediate fitting of your dentures but also help them to last for many years to come.
During a denture reline, new base material is added to the denture’s tissue side, leading to a better fit. Your Denturist will make an impression within your denture and add new base material accordingly. This process does not affect the aesthetic appearance of your denture, but only the way it fits within your mouth. Relining procedures are only required when tissue changes occur due to shrinkage. These can occur due to:
You might need denture relining if you experience:
Rebasing is done when the prosthetic teeth have not worn out as much as the base material of the base. This includes retrofitting dentures by replacing the complete acrylic denture base. In this way, you can receive a stable denture without replacing denture teeth. Denture rebasing is the procedure of choice when all the prosthetic teeth are in good condition, but the acrylic is worn out or damaged.
You might need denture rebasing if:
