Denture Repairs

If your dentures are broken or damaged, then getting professional denture repairs should be at the top of your to-do list.

Prosthetists and denture professionals can take your damaged dentures and apply the right techniques to restore their look. They will evaluate your dentures to identify the extent of damage in them and prescribe the right solution to bring them back to their original condition.

Some of the most common issues that professional denture repairs can fix include:

  • Chips, breaks or cracks in the denture material
  • Loose, tight or misaligned clasps
  • Staining

Denture Relines

If your dentures don’t fit on your gums like they used to, it doesn’t always mean they need to be replaced. In many cases, a denture reline may be what you need.

Denture relines adds new material to the base of your dentures (on the side that touches your gums) to make them fit correctly again. A proper denture reline will provide the right adjustments on your dentures and address any changes in your mouth or denture structure since you first started using them.

Denture relines are excellent for:

  • Addressing changes in your mouth and gums caused by new teeth extractions, a head or mouth injury, or simply the effects of old age.
  • Adjusting to changes in the mouth over time.

Keep in mind that denture relines will only fix the fit of your dentures. It will not change or improve the appearance of your dentures. It may also not improve the function of your dentures.
