Dentures and Denture Repairs

Denture Repairs and Custom Solutions

Dentures are removable prosthetic devices used to replace missing teeth. They can be either full dentures, which replace all teeth in the upper or lower jaw, or partial dentures, which replace only a few missing teeth and are supported by remaining natural teeth or implants. Dentures are custom-made to fit each individual’s mouth and are typically made from acrylic resin and sometimes with metal frameworks for additional support.

Over time, dentures may require repairs due to wear and tear, accidents, or changes in the shape of the mouth. Denture repairs can include fixing cracks or fractures, replacing broken or missing teeth, adjusting the fit of the dentures, and addressing any other issues that may arise.

Here are some common types of denture repairs:

Relining

Over time, the shape of the jawbone may change, leading to a loose fit of the dentures. Relining involves adding new material to the base of the denture to improve its fit and comfort.

Similar to relining, rebasing also involves replacing the base of the denture. However, in rebasing, the entire base is replaced with new material, while keeping the existing denture teeth.

If a denture tooth breaks or becomes dislodged, it can be replaced with a new one. In some cases, additional teeth may need to be added to the denture to improve chewing function or aesthetics.

Dentures can develop cracks or fractures due to accidental drops or normal wear and tear. These can often be repaired by bonding the pieces together with special dental adhesives.

Sometimes, minor adjustments to the denture may be necessary to improve comfort and function. This may involve smoothing rough spots, adjusting the bite, or making other modifications.

Trusted Professionals for Optimal Results

It’s essential to have denture repairs done by a qualified dental professional. Attempting to repair dentures at home using DIY kits or adhesives can often result in further damage and may compromise the fit and function of the dentures. If you need denture repairs, consult your dentist or prosthodontist for proper evaluation and treatment. They can assess the extent of the damage and recommend the most appropriate repair option for your specific needs.

I am so thankful for this team! They made me comfortable, they were quick and it was relatively painless (a lot less than I as anticipating). Congratulations on getting it right!!! See you in 6 months…
