Why Do You Need Denture Repairs?

 

There are many reasons why you might need a denture repair at our clinic. Some of these include:

  • Ill-fitting dentures: The most common reason for denture repairs is them being ill-fitting in the first place. If your dentures are poorly fit, you can put uneven stress in one particular area while using them. The unevenly distributed stress causes fractures in some parts of the dentures.
  • Impact: Impact fractures are another reason why you might need denture repairs. Dropping dentures can cause them to break at different points, such as the gum line or even the teeth. Impact fractures usually necessitate immediate repairs.
  • Natural wear and tear: Despite being made of durable material, dentures can become weathered due to prolonged use. The older the dentures are, the more prone they are to be damaged. Moreover, your jawbone changes over time, which might cause them to become ill-fitting.

Whatever the causes of your damaged dentures might be, at Postings Denture Clinic Ltd., we can have them repaired in no time. Denture repairs can restore a fractured or damaged denture to close to its original condition.

Know Your Denture Repair

 

Over time, your denture gets loose and starts wearing off and it is time to get them repaired for the proper functioning of your oral system. There are three most common types of denture repairs:

  • Denture reline: It is an adjustment to improve the fitting of your dentures which is usually done every 5-20 years to keep your dentures comfortable and healthy in your mouth. It is typically required to resurface the area of the tissue which is in direct contact with your denture.
  • Denture rebase: If your teeth are in good shape but your gum portion is worn out, a rebase is required. However, it is similar to reline but in rebase whose pink-acrylic denture is replaced. This type of repair is usually required when denture teeth get damaged or broken, leading to a compromise in the strength of the denture.
  • Sore spots: As the shape of your mouth changes with time, the alignment of the denture may get affected and it might not fit in your gums. It creates a sore spot in your mouth as the denture becomes too large to fit in your mouth and requires professional assistance to once again fit in your gums.


Additions

 

If you are having your natural teeth extracted, it is quite common for teeth to be added to an existing partial denture, provided it is in good condition. Once the teeth have been removed, we usually recommend waiting one week for healing, after which we can book you for a same-day addition! Sometimes, we can also add the teeth to your partial denture before your extraction, so your dentist or oral surgeon can insert it immediately after the teeth are extracted. Your denturist and dentist can work together and decide the best treatment plan for you.

 


Maintenance

 

Like with everything else, when it comes to dentures, prevention is critical. The regular maintenance of your dentures can elongate their life and eliminate the need for unnecessary repairs. Some ways to take care of your dentures include:

  • Take care of your overall dental hygiene
  • Come in for regular denture inspections
  • Keep your dentures clean
  • Be careful while handling your dentures
  • Ensure that your dentures fit you properly
  • Don’t use regular toothpaste for cleaning your dentures

  • Avoid hot water while rinsing

  • Don’t try any DIY repairs

  • Don’t use hard bristles toothbrush which is too abrasive for your dentures
