Repairing Broken Dentures

Quickly restore your dentures to optimal condition and functionality.

Introduction to Repairing Broken Dentures

Dentures are a vital solution for many who have lost their natural teeth, helping to restore function and aesthetics. However, like all dental appliances, dentures can become damaged or worn over time. Prompt and professional repair is essential to ensure they continue to function correctly and comfortably.

Benefits of Timely Denture Repair

  • Restores Functionality: Repairing breaks or damage helps restore the full function of the dentures, allowing proper eating and speaking.
  • Prevents Oral Health Issues: Well-fitting dentures help prevent problems such as sores, infections, and discomfort.
  • Extends Lifespan: Regular maintenance and timely repair can significantly extend the lifespan of your dentures.
  • Cost-Effective: Repairs are generally more cost-effective than replacing dentures entirely.

Common Issues with Dentures

Several problems can necessitate denture repair, including:

  • Cracks or Breakages: Dropping dentures can lead to cracks or even break them into pieces.
  • Fit Changes: Natural changes in your gums and jawbone may cause dentures to fit poorly over time.
  • Wear and Tear: Regular use naturally wears down the dentures, affecting their fit and functionality.
  • Staining: Like natural teeth, dentures can become stained, particularly from food, drink, or tobacco.

Denture Repair Services

Our clinic offers a range of denture repair services to address various issues:

  • Crack and Break Repair: We can often repair cracked or broken dentures quickly, restoring their original condition.
  • Relining: Relining is the process of resurfacing the side of the denture that contacts the gums to ensure a tighter and more comfortable fit.
  • Rebasing: Rebasing is similar to relining, but involves replacing the entire base material of the dentures, providing a stable base structure.
  • Adjustments: We provide adjustments to improve comfort and resolve minor irritation issues.

What to Expect During Denture Repair

Our denture repair process is designed to be quick and efficient:

  1. Assessment: The denture is examined to assess the extent of damage and determine the best repair method.
  2. Repair Process: Most repairs can be completed quickly, often on the same day, using modern tools and materials that ensure a durable finish.
  3. Fit and Comfort Check: After the repair, we check the fit of the dentures to ensure they are comfortable and functional.
