Denture Repair Q & A
Why Do Dentures Need Repair?
You make every effort to keep your dentures in good condition, but they can still develop issues in the lining or the base. Your denture may also be cracked or damaged in some way. Over time, your gums and bones may have changed, so they don’t feel right.
If you feel like your dentures don’t quite fit as well as they did initially, it might be time for a reline.
What Types of Repairs are Available?
Northwest Dental Services & Dental Implant Center features an in-house laboratory, which means you don’t have to ship them off somewhere and wait for days for them to be repaired and returned. The laboratory specializes in repairing full and partial dentures. The qualified lab technicians can make most repairs while you wait.
What Denture Repair Services are Available in the In-House Laboratory?
The in-house laboratory at Northwest Dental Services & Dental Implant Center can perform a variety of services to restore your dentures’ look, fit, and functionality. These include:
- Denture Rebase: If the pink base on your current denture is too damaged for repairs, the lab can remake it and add your replacement teeth to the new base.
- Denture Reline: When your dentures aren’t fitting securely, the lab can reline the base so it rests better along your gums.
At Northwest Dental Services, trust the doctors and the laboratory to provide you with fast and effective denture repair. Don’t just deal with uncomfortable or broken dentures, call the office to take advantage of the staff’s skill and knowledge to repair your dentures and restore your comfort.
How Can I Care For Dentures to Minimize the Need for Repair?
Taking care of your dentures and your oral hygiene helps ensure that you’ll need minimal repairs and adjustments. Never sleep in your dentures, unless otherwise directed by your dentist. Handle them with care. Hold them over a towel, counter, or sink of water so if you do drop them, they have a soft landing. Clean them daily, rinse your mouth, and brush your gums, tongue, and inside of your cheeks to discourage the growth of bacteria and yeast.
